  • If you have young children or even young teenagers, Oxon Hill Animal Farm is definitely a place you want to put at the top of your entertainment list. It is an absolutely beautiful place to get away from the city. You will have a great time if you pack yourself a picnic basket of non-perishable food items or even a cooler. There are a few picnic tables or you could bring a blanket to spread out on the grass. It's a good place if you want to get away from people. Their free parking lot has very few shaded spots so be prepared if it's hot outside and be sure to check the forecast. It's a place you can spend the whole day and it doesn't cost anything except your gasoline. You will be able to walk around a beautiful Farm like setting and see wonderful farm animals. They have very clean restrooms, a nice free parking lot and clean Sweet Air to breathe. Perfect for young lovers. My parents took me there when I was a child. When I was a young teenager with no money I would take my new girlfriends. They always loved it when we rolled around in the grass or took a horseback ride. Go there and see for yourself then you will know.
  • We enjoy going to this farm with our children! So much to do. Free hay ride, and programs! They get to milk the cows, feed the chickens and pigs for Free! We love it!
