For a $1 donation, you can grab a cup of animal food and feed the animals right from your hand. They also have some great photo stops and a... More

We made a stop at the Animal Farm while hiking back into town. We had a group of 7 and 3 were animal lovers. Four of us took a nice rest on the shaded benches and watched the others enjoy the animals. You can get cups of feed for the animals which was fun for the kids. Our kids really... More

Some cute animals there, which you can feed and observe. There was even a huge turtle slowly making its way down the yard. Cute but not particularly interesting

Had a great time by the farm. They provide free animal feed, which gets all of the animals to get real close to you. Besides for all of the animals that you can get close to and feel behind gates, there is also an area where you can go and walk freely among alpacas. Really an amazing experience. A must... More

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.
