Kensington Metropark Farm Center – Review, pics, hours, and info for the Farm Center at Kensington Park in Milford, MI. If you’re entering Kensington Metropark from Kensington Rd, follow the man park road to easily follow the signage to the Farm Center.
The Kensington Metropark Farm Center features chickens, sheep, cattle, draft horses, goats, and more. The animal pens, stalls, and surrounding grounds are impeccably clean and the surrounding grounds are extremely well-maintained. Visiting farms or local cider mills that have animals is always fun but can be discouraging if children (or their parents) see the animals’ homes are dirty and dirty or the animals themselves are look unkept. This IS NOT the case at the Farm Center. The animals have expansive areas to roam and look extremely clean and well-fed!
