Little visitor with me was under 2. She had a great time petting the goats, lambs, bunnies, chicks and also on the pony ride. It would be awesome to see a toddler section where they might get a little more 'supervised' visitation with the smaller...More

Stroller with big wheels is highly recommended as you are pushing through loose gravel and rough terrain. Very welcoming little farm with a nice variety of cute and cuddly farm animals! Free parking and there's a small concession in the entrance where you can buy...More
