Owner description: Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm Riding Stables. You’re going to love our unique barnyard environment, nestled on 143 acres of a beautiful mountain property. Bring the family to meet, pet and feed our friendly animals, including goats, deer, camels, elk, reindeer, emu, zebra, exotic cattle, watusi, zonkeys, and so much more! You can even walk amongst our tame fallow deer. After the zoo, the little ones can enjoy a ride on one of our gentle ponies, led by Mom or Dad. Or, the whole family can take a relaxing horseback ride through our wooded Smoky Mountain home, led by our courteous and experienced guides. We hope to see you soon!

This is the second time we've taken our 3 year old this year. Prices are decent for the number of animals they have. This is a good place to spend a few hours with kids. We haven't taken a horseback ride yet, but that will come in a few years when my daughter gets old enough!!

My husband and I went here and really enjoyed it. I loved that you could get in the fence with the goats. We bought the apples and a big cup of food to feed all the animals. There were camels, deer, a zonkey, kangaroos, a giant horse and more. Great for all ages. All the animals seem to be taken... More

My family had a wonderful experience. From the walk in with cats wondering around(my kids love cats) to lover boy(bird) behind the counter. Holding baby goats, petting kangaroos and many other animals. This experience was amazing and we will be back!

Awesome place. Very easy going and 'move at your own pace' environment. Surprising amount and variety of animals, most of which can be hand fed. Well worth it!!

I would not go to The Smokey Mountain without a visit to see, pet and feed the beautiful deer and other animals. I love this place and can't wait to go back next spring.

My wife and I visited the Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg area for the first time in October 2014. We went to visit the Smokey Mountain National park. We are from the KC area and have been to Branson many times. We were very disappointed with the crazy commercialization, rude and unhelpful locals, and "Branson" feel of the whole place. We... More

My favorite part was the pony ride. It was very affordable and they accommodate kids of all ages. My two year old rode the pony with her dad leading the pony. They said my 10 month old could ride also. One of us would lead the horse, while another one of us would hold him. My 2 year old LOVED... More

Great place to take the family! We all enjoyed it. You can buy cups as a souvenir and it is filled with food to feed the animals! You can also buy apples. There is a station for refills on food if you need it and a sink to wash your hands! You will need it! The animals love to be... More
