Tradewinds Educational Farm was developed to reflect the history of farm activities in Broward County and to educate the public about the various types of farm animals native to the area. The Tradewinds Educational Farm is home to numerous farm animals including cows, sheep, goats, pigs, and chickens, as well as a miniature donkey. Other animals that can be seen at Tradewinds Park are horses, ponies, and peacocks. The Country House Museum provides a glimpse of the park's past. This reconstructed farmhouse once belonged to the site's original owners.
Public farm tours are offered every weekend, weather permitting. Tours are on a first-come, first-served basis and cost $3 per person.
