We actually arrived at 4:30 and they close at 5- so we were allowed to only pay $3 each instead of $5 each but were not able to take a wagon ride since it was late in the day. Cash and check only. However, we did enjoy petting all the baby animals and seeing the chickens. We even bought a... More

I've never had more of a one-on-one experience. These two are great. The animals are nice and healthy. Whether you are petting or just looking, what a great little functioning farm for both kids and adults alike.

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.
