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

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

We brought our 3yo and 5yo. They both had a lot of fun petting baby pigs, goats, sheep and rabbits. There was also donkeys and horses to pet. The pony ride was fun, but could have been longer. The goat milking and wagon ride were...More

Definitely not worth the money paid for entrance to the farm and the Legends Easter Egg Hunt. The pony ride was ridiculous and I would not recommend. Unfortunately I did not see value for the money paid.

We visited in September with my 2 year old nephew. We either missed it on the website or it wasn't listed that the concession was closed in September so we wished we had brought some food. For 4 adults, a toddler and a pony ride...More
