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!

This hasn't changed in 20 years! I love the farm and the fact that they take such good care of the animals and it's free, just for anyone on the island to enjoy! Wonderful for kids & their parents!

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.

Stop by this wonderful spot on Block Island and enjoy an interesting family owned zoo. Justin Abrams, the owner, shares his love of animals with thousands of visitors each summer. There are kangaroos, camels, lemurs, African cranes, emus, alpacas, even a zedonk. These animals are his passion and he enjoys sharing his collection with visitors to Block Island. There is... More
