Gallant Farm-Delaware 🐑

Gallant Farm 🐑

2150 Buttermilk Rd. Delaware

We just love visiting this farm.  My oldest daughter likes the surprise of an occasional treat baked in the historical house’s wood burning stove.  It’s a great place to visit to slow down and enjoy time with family.  They have great programs as well.

🕛Hours of Operation

Winter Hours: October-March, Noon – 5 p.m. (Thursday – Sunday)

Gallant Farm includes a farmhouse with period furnishings, a barn with historic 1890s timbers, a granary, machine shed and barnyard, demonstration crop fields, vegetable garden, orchard, and pond. Visitors encounter costumed interpreters completing their daily chores — plowing the fields, tending the garden, or cooking on a wood-burning stove. 

Programs at the farm are designed to transport visitors to an earlier era. Visitors learn how to preserve produce from the garden, make sausage, prepare the garden for planting, or use the wood stove to make soups and pies — among many other activities.

Special events take place annually, including Maple Syrup Time, an Antique Tractor Show, Music under the Paper Moon, and Winter Evening on the Farm. Tours are self-guided, with staff and volunteers on hand to provide information about completing their daily chores — plowing the fields, tending the garden, or cooking on a wood-burning stove.
