We decided to stop in, just for kicks, as we’ve driven by countless times. So glad we did. The shop is interesting with various Ostrich items and miscellaneous items where you pay the entry fee ($5) and purchase food for the animals ($1) - if...More

This is a great way to spend the morning near Solvang. For under $20 my family of four got to see and feed ostriches. They are beautiful and amazing creatures and we had a great time. We were there for about 30 minutes. Highly recommend!

Honestly, this place is pretty fun. It's a trip to feed the big birds. And I really like watching them run across the big open field. They can be a little intense, but overall it's pretty fun. They even have little emus that you can...More

This is a nice place to visit and be able to feed ostriches. Entry charge is $5 per person and $1 per pan to feed them. We enjoyed our time here and well who expects to find ostriches in California?!

Located just a few miles from downtown Solvang, this unusual attraction is well worth a visit. It can be busy, and parking is limited, so you might want to arrive early to beat the crowds. You enter through the gift shop, where you buy admission...More

We drove past this first and thought it would be a fun stop. It was good, you get to feed them, there’s a lot of space and ostriches to interact with. Of course you can’t force them. If they’ve eaten so much, you really can’t...More
