Be aware, first of all, that they are a cash-only establishment. We had to run across the street to Bronner's and use the ATM, because we rarely have cash. We took our 3 year old and she was a bit overwhelmed by the one-on-one tour with the strange lady she didn't know, and didn't really want to touch or pet... More

Real nice place. The guides were very accomodating and knowledgeable. I was able to pet a bunch of adorable little animals and even try milking a cow. I would think this place would be great for little children. We enjoyed going through the one room school house. I guess I was expecting a little bigger operation, but I really enjoyed... More

This farm offer a tour that explains how a small farm is run. You get to see and touch some farm animals. When we where there, 2 adults and 2 girls 9 and 11 years, a chicken laid an egg. The girls got to hold the egg feel how warm it was to touch. The young women you took us... More

This is our second visit to Grandpa Tiny's, and we enjoyed it as much as the first. For the paltry sum of 5 bucks a person, you get a personalized family tour of the entire farm and an entire course in animal husbandry! The children and adults are invited to climb into the pens and get up close and personal... More

Me and my son visited yesterday and really enjoyed the interesting (and private!) tour. The staff is very knowledgeable, very kind, telling jokes, stories and willing to answer the questions. This is really a unique farm and visiting there was really refreshing compared to all the standard farms of nowadays.

A great opportunity to tour a real working farm! This farm is family operated. The wagon ride is infomative and entertaining at the same time. We loved the opportunity to get into the pens with the animals. There were lots of baby/young animals to see, hold and/or pet. It was a visit enjoyed by our entire family.

We live 20 minutes from Frankenmuth and just recently did we find out about this place. It's much less "touristy" than other Frankenmuth locations. It's fun, informative and hands on! Great for kids and families and very affordable.

So glad we checked out this real working farm. We had a narrated wagon ride and our tour guide/driver was very funny! He was quite knowledgeable of their farm and the various crops that they grow. He had us all laughing. We were given a tour of the inside of the barn and encouraged to go in the various pens... More

This is an informative and hands on experience. You are guided through the farm and you can pet the animals. You also have the option to take a wagon ride which we did and enjoyed. Narrative was interesting and humorous.
