Very interesting!

An unusual experience for a beachy island... quite a few animals and friendly staff. I always enjoy stopping by here!

Appears to be under some construction. Mostly birds now. If you have small children they will enjoy it, but older children not so much.

It's not a total zoo, but if your into petting zoos it's cute. They use the fiber from some of the animals and process it & sell it there. If you have young kids it's a must. It's free & maybe 1 hour out of your day. There is animal food to feed for a donation.

We stumbled on the farm while walking around the island near our bed and breakfast and were very happy we did. There are some exotic and different animals to see, pet and feed and all of the kids there were having a great time. It was a very nice stop during our walk.

The shop also has... More

If you're on Block Island, you MUST check out the farm! You can hand feed a friendly ram & see all sorts of interesting animals, like camels & even zedonks!

Fun to see the different animals. Don't hold the food cup up to feed the llama...he'll grab it and eat all the food!

We visited this farm across the street from our B&B and our daughter interacted happily with Llamas and goats. The site was generally clean and the animals appeared well cared for. A nice free get away for the kids ($1 suggested donation gets a cup of food for the animals....I suggest bringing a few singles).
