You have never done anything like this before! A small detour but not to be missed fun of feeding ostriches and emus. Great for kids.

Stopped in here on a whim. It is not the sort of cheesy tourist trap attraction that usually attracts me. But these big birds were hysterically funny. Could not stop laughing!

We've always wanted to stop here and take the kids so we finally did it this time and was worth the 15 minutes! There is a fee to go in and a fee to feed them but was well worth doing once. The kids were a little freaked out by the ostriches because they can be a little aggressive but... More

The experience here is beyond description. My husband and I spent over an hour here, laughing our heads off. It was so funny to see these ostriches eating out of our dustpans. I don't even know how much we spent on feed, which is very reasonably priced, I think they know when they have some suckers like us come along.... More

Past Ostrichland while driving to Solvang and decided to turn around and take a look. We ended up feeding the ostrich and emu and having a blast. Kind of cheesy but it's cheap and fun. Not too time consuming and great for a break from driving! Kids would have a good time for sure!

This was a fun little stop for us. My 3 year old had a lot of fun feeding the ostrich. However, you have to be careful. The Ostrich will peck and they want to grab the food from your hands. They really are wild birds. The location itself is nice and the land is expansive. They have a fun truck... More

This is the reason for so many accidents on highway 246. OBS, ostrich breaking syndrome. All of the tourist slam on their brakes to stop and check out the ostriches. Yes, they have some unique gifts, but it's mostly a tourist trap. Once you've been there once, you don't have to go back. Actually, you don't even need to go... More

We happened upon Ostrichland, USA by accident when travelling from Solvang to Morro Bay. We had a riot!!! Paid our $1 to feed the ostriches. The look on my 12 year olds face was priceless!!! Ended up going back to buy two more bowls of food. If you've never had a close-up experience with an ostrich or an emu, this... More
