We biked the south part of the island one day and stopped at the animal farm. It was so much fun!! Especially for animal lovers! Got to feed and pet the animals. They have a zedonk named Cindy which was really cool to meet. She was actually one of the reasons we wanted to go.

A must stop if you have kids in tow. Typical and not so typical livestock on site, including a BISON! Fun for families or adults.

We were staying nearby so thought we would check it out. We are two adults and were impressed with the cleanliness and array of animals they have there. It had a fun petting zoo vibe and they also sell fresh (pesticide free) veggies there at reasonable prices. Check out this place.

Visiting the animal farm was a was a quick fun activity that left us pleasantly surprised by the array of animals that you don't normally see in New England. They had a yak, llama, ostrich, 4 horned sheep, and many others. This was a fun free activity on Block Island!

With everything so $$$$$ on the island, it is great to go to something free. They do ask for donations to help with the upkeep and care of the animals. We had a very good visit and was great to relax and learn a bit about each of the animals that reside there.

A wonderful farm with very interesting animals. They seemed very well cared for, and definitely loved human company. Even got to feed them! Our favorites were the yak, zonkey, camel, lemurs, and adorable baby calves! If you love animals at all, you have to stop by! Great for families, couples, or anyone who wants to see up close some very... More

This farm is wonderful--very nice facilities and a large collection of somewhat exotic species make this a very fun stop (e.g., before going to the beach). It's just a few blocks from the ferry dock. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Every time we go to Block we stop here and check out the animals. They always have them in pairs, so no solo creatures to get lonely. It's interesting, good for all ages, and not a far walk from the shops and restaurants.
