We took our 9 year old grandson and the 3 of us had a fantastic experience with their horseback riding. Our guide Chuck was incredible.... he was terrific with the kids, gave excellent instruction, and it didn't matter whether you were the little 6 year old on the trail or the 63 year old (me) who had his one and...

Went with a friend to check this place out. It is small but the animals are well taken care of. You can get up close and pet some of them or just talk to the parrots. I saw lots of volunteers and lots of enrichment items. A great price to be able to go and visit with the animals. I... More

I have to agree with another reviewer. The pony ride is not 10 minutes like it says on their website. It was a maybe three loops around which was literally 3 minutes and that's being generous. My son liked it so it was worth the $1 a minute. I just want to advise people of this before they spend the... More

This farm offers horseback riding, summer camps, zoo and a playground picnic area. It's the perfect place for a birthday party. There is something for kids of all aages at reasonable prices.

We liked it there a lot, they are doing a great job, many animals to see and pet. Looks like a real farm and animals are clean, taken good care of. What i missed was petting horses, looks like you can't come near them. Our 2.5 year old enjoyed riding a pony, but there is a little misunderstanding: on their... More

We weren't expecting to see such an amazing variety of animals. There is quite a variety of farm and zoo animals. Not to mention how amazingly close you can get to them. Most are super friendly just like the staff and volunteers. Everything is well kept and there are lots of areas to relax and just take your time enjoying... More
