The seventh-generation Clark family farm at 10500 Clarksville Pike near Ellicott City is in the business of selling its own produce, but also has created a wonderland for families. Meet the goats, pigs, sheep, donkeys, chickens, emus, ducks, rabbits and more at Clark’s Elioak Petting Farm, and take a pony or train ride. Visit the Fairy Forest and enjoy our play areas.
Go back in time to The Enchanted Forest, a major 20th-century tourist and family attraction in Ellicott City. It was Maryland’s first theme park, and the second in the nation after Disneyland. Changing times led to the park’s demise after 30 years, but the Clarks purchased, restored and moved remnants to the farm starting in 2004. Behind the castle entrance and in the Enchanted Pine Tree Forest look for childhood delights such as Mother Goose, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, the Old Woman’s Shoe, the Three Bears’ House and Cinderella’s pumpkin coach. Fairy tales have a happy ending, after all. (clarklandfarm.com).
