We took our kids here as something fun to do while staying in Williams, AZ. We gave our 3 and 8 year olds the choice between going to the Deer Farm or Bearizona and they chose the Deer Farm and they had a blast! It is simply a wide open space where you can walk around the perimeter and feed deer. They have other animals in pens around the deer area and I believe those were all rescues. Then there is another pen that had mini goats. Needless to say there were animals everywhere. At first our kids were very nervous to be around all of the deer and they wanted to leave the main deer area to look at all of the other animals. When we reentered the deer area we spent some time around small more docile deers and our kids became much more comfortable and then we couldn’t stop them from feeding the deer. Luckily there are a number of feed machines around the main deer area so you can buy more feed for a quarter. We spent about an hour here just hanging out feeding deer and looking at the animals and the kids absolutely loved it. We’d highly recommend stopping here if you’re in the area, have little kids, and have an hour to kill. Since we visited during COVID I will add that they do not require people to wear masks outside; it is a nice big open area, but there are spaces where you can’t help but be close to other people and it can get busy there, so just be aware going in.

We really enjoyed our visit to Deer Farm in Williams. My husband brought me as a surprise for my birthday. As an animal lover and wildlife volunteer, I was relieved to see the park was clean and the animals well cared for. As soon as we entered the large deer pen, we were immediately surrounded by dozens of beautiful, friendly deer. We were thrilled to feed them by hand. Next, we watched the owner, Pat, working with the (2) beautiful zonkeys for a little while. She is so friendly and enthusiastic about all of the animals. She clearly loves them all and enjoys sharing her knowledge with visitors. She wound up walking the park with us! Most of the animals run over as soon as they see her and as a result, we were able to interact with many of the more reticent animals. There's a good variety of animals to see including llamas, alpacas, reindeer, mini horses & donkeys, camel, elk, coati's, pot bellied pigs, goats, and more...What a treat! Pat went above and beyond to make our visit special. The animals would be great to see on their own; however, the friendly, enthusiastic staff elevated the experience even more for us. We highly recommend a visit to the deer park in Williams.

The animals here are very poorly taken care of. It’s honestly very very sad to see so many animals in dirty small pens. They have reindeers who are built to survive in arctic temperatures sitting in their own water bowls because they are unable to regulate their temperatures in 100+ degree heat. It’s disgusting and ruined my day to see so many sad animals alone in dirty, small, hot cages. Also we watched a deer aggressively vomit up food from being over fed nutrition-less pellets.

literally the most depressing place i’ve ever been in my life. the animals look sad, unhealthy, dirty, and generally not taken care of. the spotted deer in the middle that get to walk around are the only animals that don’t look like they’re majorly depressed, but even one of them threw up right in front of me. other than the deer in the middle of the compound that can be hand fed, every single animal looks miserable and hot and neglected. the elk was sitting in a corner with his head against the fence, and the camel and bison (both housed alone in enclosures that are entirely too small) were pacing back and forth. the albino wallaby was dirty with patchy hair, watery eyes, and looked frail. also, the deer farm has one marmoset housed alone in a dark enclosure. if anyone who worked here did even the slightest bit of research, they’d find that marmosets need a very high level of vitamin D3 that they cannot get through food alone, and there’s no way the one marmoset is getting the level sunlight/vitamin that it needs. also, certain kinds of primates have been proven to be susceptible to getting COVID, and it’s not known what other species of animals are vulnerable. people should not be shoving their unmasked faces and hands next to the animals. primates such as marmosets are social animals and should not be housed alone. same goes for nearly all of the animals at this place. i love and work with exotic animals and left feeling very sad. i would’ve take pictures but didn’t want pictures of dying and unhealthy animals on my phone. they all need better enclosures, better care specific to the individual type of animal (specifically the marmoset), cleaner enclosures, more access to shade and water (the reindeer were breathing very very heavily and sitting in their buckets of drinking water) and more access to shade. i could go on and on but if you love animals, or even if you don’t, you don’t want to support this place. for the sake of the animals, they either need to be relocated to a better facility or serious changes need to be made. id give 0 stars if i could, i got a firsthand look at shameless animal abuse.

This place is pretty straight forward. Stop in, get some animal feed, and feed the deer. Just keep an eye on the deer cause they will try and nibble on clothes
