Really enjoyed the animals here, it was hilarious and we laughed incessantly. Unfortunately we went before they allowed you to pay to borrow a vehicle and I have quite the scrape down the side of my car from a bull's horns...I ordered special stuff from amazon to buff it out but didn't work. I haven't been back since b/c I... More

While visiting Knoxville we decided to take a short trip to Circle G Ranch. It was so much fun feeding and petting the animals! They were all so cute and gentle! Will definitely be back!

We bought a family pass to see the Ranch more often! When you first enter you can purchase food for the animals. It is $10 for 3 big containers of animal food. You can drive around the Ranch and hand feed, deer, zebras, cows, pigs, piglets, lamas, horses and ostriches. We all love this part....it is so hands on to... More

This safari ride is so much fun for kids and adults! If you love animals and close interaction this is definitely for you! Where else can you feed a zebra? We drove in our old van but if you have a nice car I would recommend taking their Safari tour. The driveway can get a little rough at times.....keep your... More

We weren't sure what to expect, but it was a great fun time. We couldn't stop laughing by all the animals coming up to your car. I recommend the drive through experience with feed. Kids enjoyed feeding the animals. Owners were polite.

My mom and I stumbled upon this place on accident a few years back and now we go every time we are in town!! They will soon have printable coupons on their website. Buy 3 buckets of feed for $10, trust me you will need it. Also, with your admission you will get to go through as many times as... More

We took our granddaughter & great-grandson to this place & we all loved it so much we wanted to drive through again. We enjoyed it thoroughly & it was constant laughing. The llamas like to run behind your vehicle after you feed them as well as the ostriches & they looked so funny! We plan to go again in a... More

First let me say that this is not our first visit. We have taken our children and grandchildren here many times over the years. However, it has been a while since our last visit and boy have things changed! We were greeted by lots of baby pigs running around the parking lot when we arrived. Many had sores, scrapes, cuts,...

If you are in the area, I urge you to visit this amazing place!!! My husband and I have been a couple times and just love it. If you have kids, this is a great adventure as well!! The animals come right up to your window, and let you pet them and feed them!! There is so much to see!!
