Description: Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm...
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!

We took our 5 grandchildren, ranging from 6 months to 9 years old. We all enjoyed the Zoo. It was so much fun feeding all the animals.

My husband and I took our 4 and 8 year old here on a whim. We had so much fun. The kids (and adults) were able to feed and pet exotic animals. The animals were well cared for and gentle. The workers were very friendly and knew each of the animals by name and knew their personalities. The pony rides... More

LOVED THIS PLACE! We decided to stop by on our way out of town. The workers were very friendly and really enjoyed their job. The animals were great! Most are rescued animals with lots of room to roam. I loved being able to get in the fence with the deer and goats and hold the baby goats <3 The camels... More
