For a pretty small operation, the place is impressive with its collection of wildlife animals. Despite their cages, I think being surrounded by nature helps the animals relax, unlike some zoos that are located in the middle of the city and creates a stressful environment for them. I like the idea that you can go around on your own, but the staff (few as they are) are friendly and are willing to chat with you. There are picnic areas where you can stay in (already part of the entrance fee), and you are expected to clean up after you. We weren't able to explore the whole place and we definitely missed the snakes. Be careful of the ostriches: They roam about freely and may swipe at your lunch. Harmless creatures though.
I also like the idea that the farm works with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to take in injured wildlife animals, take care of them then release them to the wild. I hope the farm will open up for volunteers and partnership with other groups of similar interests to help improve the facilities.
