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 visited May 9th and had a wonderful time. They have a great place. My grandkids (9 and 11 years old) loved it as did my 78 year old mil. The animals were well kept and healthy. The family had a good time feeding them. Before we left the kids each rode a pony and loved it. We will go... More

We took our 2 and 3 year old and they had a blast! It was a tad pricey, but completely understandable, caring for all those animals cannot cheap! We loved how parents are the ones walking the ponies for the pony rides, it made the kids a lot more at ease. I definitely recommend if you are in town on... More

Went here with my wife and her friend with two 2 year olds and had a blast. Animals were super friendly! I got to feed a camel and a zonkey!!! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

The place is out in the country, but it is nice. The price is about what I would expect for this type of adventure (under $30 for two adults and one child). They offer military discounts! There are pony rides available for the little ones & you can walk along with them. My little one was afraid and the people... More

OK Value. Nice alternative to the busy tourist attractions. They are coupons to save a few bucks in local brochures. We were unaware before we went.

I had fun with my boyfriend. It was expensive, but so is everything else. It wasn't too much to turn us away. The counter lady was very friendly. Had a great attitude. The poor animals do act like they are starting and I kind of felt bad for them. I couldn't see it being a great life for them. Left... More

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
