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!

We bought a cup of feed (you can... More

We visit every year. They have a variety of different animals from deers, camels, donkeys, peacocks, etc. If your kids want a wonderful hands on experience of feeding deer and other exotic animals, this is the place.

I learned all about the animals at the farm as well as information about things in the area. Amy, another guide was so awesome with the kids. The petting zoo had a wide variety of animals. It...

This is a nice place to go with small children. You can go right after horseback riding. Walking around goats is so much fun. Feeding the reindeer, horses, elks and the camel was fun for the little ones and the adults too. The camel was very photogenic and made us laugh a lot.

My husband and I took our two year old daughter here today. We were so happy to see a family run business in such a tourist town. All the animals were happy and healthy and very friendly. My daughters favorite was the pony rides, but I fell in love with the deer. This place is great for all ages even... More
