Reservations are no longer needed to visit Ardenwood Farm. It's a great place to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, animals, and more with the kids.

Every day, you can visit the animals. Chat with staff - they can help you learn lots of things about the animals and the farm. Discover the farm's hidden history on their Digital Walking Tour.

On Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays, meet the blacksmith and then from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, take a tour of the Patterson House parlors.

Thursdays through Sundays, you can check for eggs and feed the livestock. Learn all the animal's favorite foods as you help tuck them in for the evening (meet at the Chicken Coop at 3:00 pm).

Saturdays and Sundays the Farmyard Cafe is open.

Ardenwood Farm is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. They are closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day and parking is always free.

The current entry fees are:

  • $4 per adult (18+ years)
  • $3 per senior (62+ years)
  • $2 per child (4-17 years)
  • Free for under 3 and under

Ardenwood Farm is located at 34600 Ardenwood Blvd., Fremont (510) 544-2797.
