“Kid nirvana!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

What a great little set up - from the road the farmyard zoo doesn't look like much, but once you're through the gates it's a different story. Animals everywhere, most of them friendly enough to pat. Kids will spend ages running back and forth between the various cages and pens, guaranteeing Mum and Dad at least an hour of peace. My kind of place!

“What a lovely and enjoyable place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We visited as a family of five with children five to fourteen - and we all enjoyed it enormously. The many animals were all kept very well and looked good (if not to say "happy"). We spent 2.5 hours and could have stayed longer. The family price of $30 is certainly worth it - and quite a few dollars spent on animal feed ($1/cup) even more so. Our favorites were the lambs, the ostriches, the horses and " Ossie".

“If you have young kids don't miss this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We had a wonderful family day out here - it's a shame there aren't more places like this around the country! Our son loved feeding and getting up close to the animals and really enjoyed his pony ride. The whole park is really nicely laid out and easy to get around. There were covered areas to pic-nic and there was a great playground for the kids. Would highly recommend to people with young children.
