f I couldn’t find someone to take his spot and he didn’t get better - too bad! We lose our $370 with no option to move to a different week.

Went with a five year old and a two year old. They seemed to have fun. The bunnies were all in hiding but the goats where out and ready to have a pet or two and eat some seeds from an ice cream cone(.25). We...More

Had a really great time exploring the “farm”. We got there nice and early so we beat the rush. The pony ride was a treat for our 3yo, if not a little short. Our 8yo loved the bunny cage - who knew. He calmly sat...More

This was a disappointing attraction. They did have a range of farm animals but when we were there they had about 50 kids there that were on an excursion. They seemed to be the only ones able to enter the enclosures. It’s difficult to explain...More

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

I took a group of 23 kids ages 9 and under, and their parents, as our club's "year end field trip". The kids absolutely loved it, and it was a great space to run and play. We had a bit of a hiccup with Pony...More

Staff seemed friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. Enclosures were clean, plenty of water and shelters available to them. An excellent place to promote and bolster the value of treating animals with respect with kids. The concession was pretty overpriced, so bring your own snacks but otherwise...More

It is absolutely appalling the conditions these animals are kept in. The horses were standing around in their own feces. The staff didn't CLEAN the stalls, they just piled more hay over the dirty, feces-covered hay. It was mid- July, and the pigs had NO...More
