Its a little pricey to get in but you can go in 3 days in a row if you want to. Its extra to ride the train and ponies but worth it. There are llamas, goats, chickens, chicks, bunnies, horses, pigs to look at. You can bottle feed the calves and lambs.

Kids loved it! I thought it was a little expensive but it was worth it to see the kids with the animals! We watched the pig races and my 3 yr old thought it was awesome. They also did the pony rides with he loved!!

My kids really enjoyed this place, the younger ones (4 and 2) even more than the 8 yr old. Your ticket is good for 3 days so if you plan ahead you might be able to do this multiple times assuming your kids enjoy it. My son would spend an extremely long amount of time feeding the animals, especially the... More

My 9 month old LOVES animals. The photos we got were amazing. We are normally not really zoo people because I prefer animals be in their natural habitat, but I'm pro making my baby happy :-) The animals seem really well taken care of and even though we accidentally let a goat escape from its pen, they were super nice...

This is our 2nd visit to Old MacDonald's because my boys loved it so much! There are so many animals to interact with - feeding and petting. Make sure you have quarters or buy some when you are paying to get in. They have food you can buy for the animals throughout the farm. Be careful if you go in... More

it's a great place to visit and it is very affordable i think the 3 day pass was like $10usd, if you like animals and they are roaming free more than any zoo, check it out

Our little ones love this place. There are plenty of opportunities to interact with animals too. Even our 8 year old loved it. I am amazed at how clean the pens and animal areas are.

My husband and I stopped in because we both love critters. They had baby goats, calves, sheep, rabbits, and chicks that you could touch and pet. The young adults that were working there seemed to like their jobs and answered any questions. We had a great time. I could have spent a few hours more just hanging out with the... More

We are from Iowa, so we've spent lots of time on a farm caring for the animals. However we enjoyed McDonalds Farm very much. If you've not had a farm upbringing or have not spent time up-close and personal with farm animals, you will want to stop here. The animals are tame and the workers are knowledgable and helpful.
