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.

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.

Day out to the zoo

My husband and I decided to go out to different zoo's to see animals to feed them and hold them. This will be amazing and awesome because some I've never seen before.

Loved the horseback riding. Highly recommend ms. Kay. As far as the petting zoo save your money. Needs major upgrades. Animals look healthy but their pens need updates. 5 stars horseback riding, 2 1/2 for animal zoo

What a great gem in Sevierville. Had a blast petting and feeding animals. Jealous that the pig has satellite television in his house. ;~} Even was able to get up close with a camel and zebra. Fun watching kids with the goats

This is hidden down a winding road but just a few minutes outside of Sevierville. We swung in here on the way back from the (fabulous) English Mountain Trout Farm. The front desk girl was super friendly and efficient, quickly giving us tips on the best ways to feed and interact with the animals. There are at least 20 goats... More

My boyfriend and I both had an incredible time. We did a weeklong road trip and this ended up being the highlight. Very affordable for such a close encounter with exotic animals. Where else can you pet a zebra for that price?? You can tell the animals are very well cared for and happy. They love the attention from visitors... More

We were trying to find something to do on our way out home from Pigeon Forge and this was the best idea! There's so much fun to do here. Tons of animals, pony rides, and you can even go horseback riding! The staff is very friendly and the animals are great! I highly recommend stopping here when visiting the area.... More
