Five great spots in New Jersey to take the entire family this spring


Via VISIT NJ – As the springtime brings warmer weather, farms throughout New Jersey start coming back to life and reopening for the season. Celebrate spring by visiting one of these family-friendly attractions—we’ve done all the legwork on their offerings for this season.
Popes’ Gardens
Meet barnyard animals face-to-face at this family-friendly working farm in Waterford. And don’t miss out on the chance to get your hands dirty in one of their classes. (Spoiler: Container gardening will be big this year!)
Johnson’s Corner Farm
Bring your kiddos to ride, slide, climb, dig and more at this Medford property’s Discovery Barnyard & Animal Farm. Be sure to come back in late spring for farm tour hayrides and pick-your-own strawberries too.
Oasis Family Farm
Adventure abounds at this Robbinsville farm! Play and explore in the Fun Zone. Discover treasures in the Gem Mine. Pan for (fool’s) gold in the Amazon Gold Rush. And dig for dinosaurs in the Fossil Adventure.
Hidden Spring Lavender Farm
Enjoy a wonderland for the senses when you stroll the fragrant lavender fields and meet the adorable alpacas at this husband-and-wife-run operation in Skillman.
Historic Longstreet Farm
Discover what farm life was like in the 1890s in Holmdel. Where horses and mules plow the fields, cows and chickens produce milk and eggs, and weekend activities put you in the thick of Monmouth County’s rural past.
To make the most of your outing, we recommend visiting each attraction’s official website or social media channels before your arrival for the most up-to-date information on hours of operation and restrictions. Then make plans to celebrate the season in New Jersey!
