Franklin Farm

Please note, the petting zoo is closed for the season, opening on April 15. We hope to see you then!

Experience farm life in the middle of Boston! This exhibit features a petting zoo, where children can see and touch friendly goats in the warmer weather. Explore the brooder building, where newly-hatched chicks keep warm, and visit the chicken coop to greet several species of chickens. The main barn houses ponies, Guinea hogs, donkeys, sheep and goats. And keep an eye peeled for our resident barn cat, Waldo!
