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 chose this place based on previous reviews. We trust Trip Advisor and they did not disappoint. This was actually a lot bigger than I expected and there was not a crowd on a weekday. The place has a lot of animal pens. It was a bit pricier than I would expect. However, the animal feed is cheap, so it... More

This was a great time seeing animals both foreign and domestic in a up close venue. Kangaroo, deer, donkeys, zonkeys, miniature horses, Belgians, camels, llamas, reindeer, Asian deer, elk, and ducks were just some of the animals. You can feed them and pet them. They were all gentle. Make sure you follow all the instructions of the staff that they... More

Our young daughters wanted to go horseback riding, so we took them to Deer Farm. My husband and I had visited several years ago and did the horseback rides and also went to the petting zoo. We had a great time and wanted our kids to experience it as well. The entire staff was very friendly just as we remembered,... More

Today we visited Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and we had a GREAT time. The staff was friendly, the prices were excellent and the animals were so much fun to feed. The highlight was feeding apples to reindeer and holding the baby goats. We are planning another trip to this area next summer and we will definitely be coming back to... More

The people are really nice, and the horses are tamed and friendly but the facility needs to be a little updated. My grandson had fun though and that is all that mattered.

My family and extended family decided to visit based on reviews and to experience the pony rides. We had planned just to do the pony rides for the kids but decided to do the petting zoo as well. The workers were very friendly and gave us information on the animals before we entered the petting zoo. Once in the petting... More

We stopped here last year to do the deer farm & exotic petting zoo. We saw the pony rides last year, but our toddlers were not interested in ponies yet. This year they have been showing more interest in ponies, so we thought that our toddlers might like to try a pony ride. Having seen the signs that their pony... More

My family of 4 (2 adults, 9 yr. old & 12 yr. old) all loved this zoo! It's worth it just to spend some time in the deer pen. They are so beautiful and although really just want you to feed them, so cool to pet and we were able to get some really great pictures. The camels were pretty... More
