Our kids loved it here. The staff is all so friendly and kind to the children. Even when our son accidentally let two sheep out of their enclosure!!!! The guy came right over with a big bucket of feed and got them put right back where they belong, and he was so nice, said it happens all the time, didn't... More

Took our very young girls here, we had the best time. Great interaction with the animals, very easy to get to. Lots of fun activities for the kiddos.

Kids were thrilled with everything. We had 1 year old and 4 year old and 2 7 year olds and all of them had great time. They did everything and loved the hands on experience with all of the animals. I also like that the pass you buy is good for 3 days so can come and go. This was... More

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
