The small town of Cross Anchor is the perfect backdrop for our Colonial educational farm and an extraordinarily peaceful experience that gives each visitor a new appreciation for the simpler ways of life.
Our family farm is a perfect place to unwind, try your hand at colonial activities, take in the country atmosphere, hear stories of our past, and enjoy our friendly barnyard animals. Our goal is to provide a hands-on experience that will give visitors a taste of how life used to be.
There is so much to experience here that one visit will not be enough! As our young farm grows, there will always be something new to do or learn or see, that will bring you back again and again.
We are closed for the winter season until March 6th!

Simple Times Farm is committed to provide the best experience for children and adults alike. We want to be able to teach some of the simpler ideas that our country was built upon and provide a learning environment that every one can enjoy. We want you to experience what life may have been like in the early days of our country, and have fun doing it. We offer many different opportunities for all group sizes to come experience simpler times and unplug from the day to day craziness.
When you visit Simple Times Farm there is always something happening. We would love to have you apart of the experience!
