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!

this was the highlight of our trip! Staff was very friendly! You're able to be hands on with the animals. We will be back each time we're in Tennessee!

My husband and I took our 14 year old twin girls to the stable. When you first pull in it looks a little run down but please don't let that fool you! The horses and tack are all very well cared for and the guides seem to love what they do! We went in the 45 minute ride only bc... More

This was our second trip to the deer farm. We love it here! The staff is incredible! About a 20 minute drive from the pigeon forge strip, this farm is a beauty to experience. There are no fowl smells or worries here. Just a chance to connect with nature. Buy a feed cup and get face to face with some... More

Had a great time riding the horse and going to petting zoo. Everyone was nice and helpful. Matt helped us get on the horse and was our tour guide. He was awesome! My family will be going again.

Our family of five (including three kids 14,12, and 3) visited both the petting zoo and stables this week. Although we had a fun time feeding the animals, our highlight was the horseback riding at the stables. Our three year old doubled with my husband as she is a bit too small to ride alone. Our guide, Laura, was fantastic... More

Kids/ teens have the chance to feed all types of animals including goats, deer, reindeer, horses, cattle, camels, etc. and parents have the chance to get some once in a lifetime pictures!! Visitors can go into pens with goats and... More
