Wildlife & Farm Exhibits at Drumlin Farm

Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary is unique in its position as an environmental education center, working farm, and wildlife sanctuary, which includes a collection of farm animals and native wildlife on exhibit.

Animal Barns

Sheep, goats, chickens, pigs, cows, and our pony greet you in our animal barns throughout the farmyard. Enjoy the lambs and kid goats frolicking in the spring or find the animals basking in the sun in the middle of winter. 

Watch our farmers do chores in the late afternoon, they are always happy to answer questions for visitors. For the safety of our animals as well as your safety, please do not feed the animals–leave that to our farmers!

Native Wildlife Exhibits

Drumlin Farm provides a long-term home for these rehabilitated, injured, or human-habituated wildlife, who would not be able to survive in the wild on their own. When you visit Drumlin Farm, you have an opportunity to see many of our native wildlife in unique exhibits.

Bird Hill

Walking along the trail on Bird Hill you can encounter most of the raptors that live in Massachusetts. Depending on the season, hawks, falcons, owls, and vultures look back at you from their enclosures. 

Near the birds of prey, you will have the chance to observe a group of ground-dwelling, chicken-like birds—ring-necked pheasants.

New England Wildlife Explorations

This wildlife exhibit highlights the native animals that thrive where the forest meets the field. This larger landscape features red fox and other wildlife that occupy the edge habitat that dominates the farm. 

There is also a child-sized den, where visitors will be able to experience the feeling of sheltering underground while getting an up-close look into the fox habitat.
