Drive-thru farm tours at Fosterfields Living Historical Park in Morris County

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – From the comfort and safety of your vehicle, you can tour the circa 1900 Fosterfields Living History Farm, located at 73 Kahdena Road, in Morris Township.

See your favorite Fosterfields animals including Hobbes, the retired Belgian draft horse who worked the farm for years with his late partner Calvin, various breeds of sheep, including our newest Shropshire breed, Jersey cows, and of course, Carl the ox. The farm’s vegetable gardens are flourishing, right around the corner from the barns and the farmer’s house.

Overlooking the 213-acre farm is the Willows, the 1854 Gothic revival-style mansion that was once the home to the elite Foster family. This architectural gem, along with the farm, was bequeathed to Morris County by the adventurous Caroline Foster.

Special demonstrations include corn cracking, butter churning, clothes washing and more.

You must preregister and tours take place at 10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m, and 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays now through Oct. 30. Each tour will last approximately 45 minutes.
