“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Our 3 year old loves alligators. We stopped by here on a family outting the staff was wonderfully hospitable. Very friendly treated us not like we were strangers but neighbors or friends. We learned ALOT of things we didn't know. This place is very family oriented and educational would recommend it to anyone and we will diffenitally return! Thanks guys for a wonderful experience!

“Unique Southern Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

First response: Must go at least once for the experience!
Detailed response: My mother-in-law suggested we stop by here during her latest visit. At first, I was skeptical because it was the family from the "Original Swamp People" and I thought it would be a huge tourist trap! But the three of us had a BLAST! T-Mike was our farm tour-guide, and he was excellent at explaining farm life, animal habits, and his experience on the TV show. He was very interactive with the whole audience, and put a lil' extra focus on the kids! You learn about the Turtle Farm, the Alligator Farm, and also a few other random animals on site. You watch the guides wrestle a 6-year old alligator - are given the chance to touch and/or sit on the alligator - and also watch interaction with the original 56 year old alligators on the farm! Kids get to hold a baby alligator at the end of the tour! VERY FUN - UNIQUE - SOUTHERN EXPERIENCE!!

“Great family outing and alligator experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

We stumbled upon this farm while looking for "swamp people.". Very educational and interactive. We were able to hold a 4 foot alligator for no extra fee. I read reviews on other farms and they were very fee based.

Mike and T-Mike took the time to talk about what it was like to be on swamp people and were very friendly. This is a must if your looking for a family outing while touring New Orleans.

“Critters Galore.. Oh and Gators TOO!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

These folks have more critters than you can shake a stick at... oh yeah and gators too! The kids really enjoy going here, I would say it's interesting to say the least! Go at least once for the experience and to say you held a gator even if it is just a baby!
