My family got to hold baby goats!!!!!!!!! We had fun with the pig races. Bacon won!!! The sheep tried to jump on me when I went in to feed them. I would advise you don't go into any pen with food. The goats got aggressive too. If outside the fence they are super nice:) We spent a lot on animal... More

Stay away!! Do not support!! Horses and cows feet are so overgrown animals are limping and feet are curling up!! As a horse owner feet care is imperative!! Please, please, please, take care of your animals!! For the price animal care should be top priority!!

Pay once and you get in for 3 days which is a good deal. Our daughter loved this place at age 2 and age 7. You can feed the goats and sheep. See pig races, hold chicks and chase chickens! They have pony rides and a tractor ride. People are really nice. The price like everything isn't super cheap but... More

I came from NYC to the Rapid City area to visit Mount Rushmore... who knew that visiting Old McDonald's Farm would become the highlight of my trip!?!? This farm is relatively small, but fantastic. Animals include pigs, goats, cows, horses, etc. There is also a small play area for children, and a schedule of animal feedings and pig races. All... More

Went today with my mom and daughter. I grew up in Rapid but this attraction wasn't around so this was our first time here. We all loved it. My daughter is 2 1/2 and LOVES animals. I think she petted every one that let her :). We are all sad to see the FOR SALE sign as we hope in... More

My almost 3 year old loved all the animals that he got to touch and my 5 year old thought it was awesome too. My 7 year old was just OK with it. They did enjoy the pig race and feeding the animals. Liked that you get 3 days for 1 price. Nice picnic area. Only bad thing was the... More

My daughter LOVED this place - especially the baby goats. She could have stayed there all day. She also loved the baby chicks. She did a pony ride as well (which was too short). I think adults could be charged less though. This was definitely very memorable for her.

Great place to take your kids, I myself wouldn't go there as an adult by myself. It was fun though to watch my son enjoy the animals. They have pig races, pony rides and a few other things going on. Good place to entertain kids.

It was an ok stop, but for what it was, I felt like admission should have been half as much. What you pay will get you in for three days, but what's the fun of that when you can see the entire place in less than an hour? Perhaps they should offer reduced prices if you don't plan on coming... More

We went to this attraction with our kids a couple month ago and were not charged for our kid's admission because they are only 2 years old. The kids liked it, but it gets to be really spendy when parents are already charged $11 for something that is tailor made for kids, not adults. Not to mention they charge $2... More
