Our entire family had a great time here. In addition to admission, you can buy feed for the deer. The larger bags have peanuts and the smallest bag size has corn. We purchased 2 of the corn bags and the deer and other animals went wild for it. We had to hold the bags for our children because the deer would've just taken the entire bag from them, but the feed lasted a very long time with us holding the bags up and just doling out handfulls. All the kids had a great time and aside from the one year old picking up a deer pellet, all went well. The animals were very interested in getting to the feed, but none of them were aggressive about it. My eldest child (7) wasn't interested in feeding the animals, but she loved getting to pet them and even once the feed was gone the animals were happy to let us pet them. The deer basically acted like dogs; they even wagged their tails. There were peacocks and a baby goat wandering around as well. The exhibits held other animals, most of which you could feed. We saw llamas, other types of deer (including a Japanese kind that made little baby noises), donkeys, emus, mountain goats, etc. There were baby animals drinking from their moms and we also saw a pregnant goat. It was absolutely wonderful to interact with these animals. I loved having a little posse of deer follow me around. They were so soft and pretty. We got wonderful photos of all the kids interacting with the deer and other animals. It's definitely an experience our family won't forget and the kids are already begging to go back. One piece of advice: wear old clothes. The deer managed to nibble some little holes in my top and we all got pretty dirty in general. Also, previous reviews are correct about the bathroom, but there is an outdoor sink with soap so you can wash your hands when you're done. The gift shop had some reasonably priced souvenirs and we were able to chat a bit with the owners who were very nice and obvioulsy dedicated to the care of these animals. On our way out we purchased fish food to feed the giant fish in the lake. It wasn't as cute as feeding the deer, but it was quite amusing. We will definitely be back.
