West maple farms is a lot of fun and perfect for toddlers.

Nickel O Farms is about 10 minute drive from main Monsey and there's more to do there than at West Maple.

I'm not sure if this is true but I heard they are bringing all the animals from Nickel O to West maple. The same people own both farms

Just to clarify. west Maple Farm is great. You get to feed the animals and pet them, but you can't go into a pen with the animals. Like you can't hold bunnies or baby goat...
They also have a great playground and picnic tables, my kids love that place.

I went few years back to nickle o farm and was amazing experience as well. At that point they let my kids go into the chicken coupe. They held the chickens. Also the bunnies. I heard that they stopped it since, not sure...

So that would explain it...
Did anyone go to nickel-o-farm recently and can confirm?

Its very clear on the website that the petting zoo is closed and has been moved to West Maple farms. My son noticed that the cow chair is the same as nickelo stables farm too.

You can also feed and pet animals at Abma’s farm and Demarest farm. Both are 15-20 minutes away, depending where you are in Monsey. They are small and good for little kids, with a farm store to buy food. Demarest has a nice playground area.

Sorry ETA that they both have official petting zoo on their websites. How would you compare them to west maple?
