Charmingfare Farm is home to many traditional agricultural animals you would expect to see on a farm. Children will enjoy the Oakhurst Dairy Discovery Barn, home to our large hands-on petting area. After visiting with the farm animals you will follow the paths leading into the woods and there you’ll encounter our wildlife exhibits; home to some of North America’s greatest predators. Throughout the day various rides, demonstrations and activities are offered. Be sure to pack a picnic lunch and spend the day with us and enjoy our animals.

Special Zoo Events

Through out the summer Charmingfare Farm offers events for families to enjoy. There are many Special Events for you to consider attending year round.

You Shoud Know


We print our maps and brochures at the start of each year; however, circumstances beyond our control may change the animal inhabitants at Charmingfare Farm. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee any particular animal will be visible or on exhibit during your visit.

We deliberately allow the vegetation in our wildlife enclosures to become over grown. This practice simulates a more natural habitat, creates a sense of security and we believe the ground stays cooler aiding in the comfort of the wildlife.

The Rides

Weather is the primary reason for rides not to be operational.  Rain, unpredictable thunderstorms and warm temperatures exceeding 90 degrees will cause our rides not to operate.  We are a working farm and on a rare occasion a situation may arise that requires us not to run a particular ride. 


Charmingfare Farm is for the most part wheel chair accessible. If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to call 603 483-5623 x100. We are always willing to accommodate request to the best of our ability.


Parking for Charmingfare Farm is FREE for all. There is plenty of room for campers and buses.


No pets are allowed on the grounds and we are sorry but there are no kennel facilities. Certified guide/service dogs are welcomed.

General Admission to visit the animals closes for the season on Sunday, September 24, 2017. The farm does offer other events and activities through the year that may allow you the option to visit with the animals. Please explore our website for other opportunities.
