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!

Daughter loved seeing the small animals especially the small deer and feeding them. The camels and the tall blonde horse were beauties! They seem to be well taken care of by staff that knows...

My family and I have been to many petting zoos and this by far has been our favorite. The staff is wonderful, the animals are well taken care of and a lot of fun to interact with. I must say watching the camel slobber all over my wife's hands was quite entertaining. Would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys... More

This was the best part of our trip! We have a three year old and she loved every minute of feeding the animals! I cannot say enough good things about this place and the staff! The zonkey was our favorite!

Very friendly and welcoming place, the visit allowed our toddler to have very close interactions with camels, goats, deer, emu, horses & mini horses and a few other exotic beasts I can't remember. I believe there were some unique cattle and even a kangaroo. You have the option of purchasing a cup of special feed and hand feeding it to... More

This was the first horseback riding experience for our young children and we were nervous. However, our guide was amazing and made us feel comfortable. He was very friendly and we really enjoyed the ride. The one-hour trip is worth the money. We will definitely be coming back next year!

We first found this farm in October 2013 when our planned vacation had to be altered due to the government shutdown. Boy, were we happy we found them! The kids loved this place (ages 1 and 3 at the time) along with my mom. My husband and I enjoyed it, too. They have some unique animals that I've never seen... More

The animals appeared to be very well taken care of. The staff was extremely friendly and even knew my sister by name. We spent hours walking around and feeding the animals. It was my favorite part of coming to Sevierville! Our horseback ride was amazing and our guide was friendly and entertaining! I can't wait to come back!

My husband and I took our 4 year old granddaughter to the petting zoo and horseback riding. We all loved it. They have many animals at the petting zoo that you may have seen before, but probably have not been able to feed or interact with. And, the horseback ride was great. We signed up for the 45 min. ride... More

We had 3 adults--2 of whom are senior citizens. The one senior had to sit in the shop where the very nice young woman who was taking admissions kept him company while the other 2 walked through the petting zoo. I'm used to goats and horses and no, they are not starving. You have food--they want treats! Kind of like... More
