I love this place! They have a LOT of different unique animals to see and pet. The animals seem to be well taken care of and respected. The areas they're kept in are a little small but this is a great place for any kids or animal lovers.

It is worth the extra dollar to buy a bag of food. The most fun was feeding all of the different animals from goats to pigs to deer.

We found a Groupon for this attraction and was not sure what to expect. There was really no advertising on they way and when we arrived it did appear to be a farm. Please don't let this stray you. From the time we got up to the gate it was a great, interactive time. We had 4 kids, ages 6-11,... More
