About
At The Farm at Walnut Creek, you will find both a unique and educational experience for the entire family. On your visit, you will have the opportunity to view and feed 650 domestic species as well as animals from six different continents – buffalo, llamas, giraffes, deer, elk and much more. Enjoy hand feeding these animals from the comfort of your own car or take our leisurely horse drawn wagon ride with our experienced Amish guides. Also, plan to visit our barns - all built to resemble a working Amish farm. Depending on the season, you can experience plowing, thrashing, sowing seeds, growing produce, canning, milking, quilting, and baking. Be sure to take a stroll through our non-electric farm houses, the produce stand for all of your fresh produce needs, and don’t forget your camera to capture the memories. Be sure to ask questions of our Amish staff - they'll be happy to explain. We recommend you budget about 2 to 3 hours for a visit to The Farm.

We live in Akron and decided to take a friend visiting from London to Amish country. Based on the reviews on Trip Advisor, we included The Farm and were rewarded with such a fun experience! The weather was very cool so we opted to stay in our car and not take the buggy ride. It was amazing how many varieties of animals were roaming the huge 'farm' and came up to the car looking for food. A real 'up close and personal' experience. Antelope, deer, bison, pigs, emus...it was a fascinating journey and much more interesting than going to a zoo where the animals are all in cages. We highly recommend The Farm if you're touring Amish country in Ohio.

We did a day trip to this farm and was not disappointed! It is very well laid out and clean. You pay and get your animal feed when you pull up to the window located on side of the building. Masks are worn by all the employees. Bathrooms are inside of the building and are fairly clean. You drive your car around the animals. The animals do get up close and personal but it’s a great time. I do not recommend if you have a car that you don’t want getting slobbery and dirty. They also have buildings, houses, and a horse barn you can tour. The house had free cookies and a great selection of bread you could purchase.

This place blew away my preconceived notion of a simple animal farm of exotic animals. I would describe it as an interactive zoo when you take the horse drawn wagon ride and hand feed the various species of animals that live in the huge wooded, fenced in area. The 40 minute ride was like a nice ride in the countryside while viewing and feeding the animals. The driver was engaging and provided a wealth of information with humor. So, take the wagon ride and don’t drive your own car. The other animal exhibits were well laid out and let you view them at your leisure. Strolling the grounds, venturing into the house, and enjoying fresh cookies made for an enjoyable visit.

Despite an expensive entry fee, the animals are in small dirty pens, most outdoors and were shivering from the cold. The giant horse is apparently seldom permitted to go outside and is in a stable that doesn’t look large enough to turn around. Shameful to exploit animals in this way. I would not recommend this place.

Love this place. Took 9 year old granddaughter and she was able to feed all kinds of animals from the wagon as well as in the walk around area of the site. Buckets of feed are provided on the wagon, one for each participant. Hold onto them if you offer them to the animals as some can get ahold of a bucket and they are strong, LOL Loved seeing the baby animals as well as the huge water buffalo etc. Almost all of the animals come right up to the wagon to feed. I would say to be sure and stay seated as they suggest. The horses do step ahead at times or flinch and the wagon does shift. You can fall back if standing. First wagon is out at 9. We had very little wait time. Animals are well cared for and love people. We did get to hand feed a baby giraffe. My granddaughter was able to pet it on the side while I fed it. We were there early and it was hungry. Macaws are overhead on ropes on tour. One took a peanut from our guides hand. Funny to see it go upside down to reach the peanut. Cold water is for sale for a buck in the basement of the house. You can take a cooler if you need drinks etc and keep it in the car. Had a few baked goods for sale as well as some quilts in the house. My granddaughter wants to go back. I do too. I love being able to touch the animals and feed them.

The prices are extremely fair here. Take a hay ride or drive through the farm. A designated area exists for walking and seeing the displays of animals. The covered bridge offers some shade, as do the home and barns. Everyone gets a freshly baked cookie. Not only do you get to feed the animals, you get to experience the Amish culture as well. The visitor may easily spend 3 or more hours here. You may drive through as many times that you would like.

Our three grands (ages 10, 9 and 5) came for a 3 day visit. We wanted to do something fun but safe as things began to open up after 3 1/2 months of quarantine. The Farm was now providing a completely drive thru experience. Not knowing what to expect, I worried that this might be a disappointing trip after traveling on winding country roads the back way in with a child who was getting car sick. After paying (cash or check only) and buying a bucket of feed, we got in line with the other vehicles. Wow. We had a blast! This was the highlight of their visit. They had so much fun feeding the animals from the car. And hearing their screams as the long horned bull stuck his head in the car and rolled out his foot-long tongue made us all laugh. This was a wonderful experience and I'd love to do this again.

My family and I had a great visit! We enjoyed the wagon ride and feeding the animals. Our wagon master was great! He kept us laughing with fun jokes and was very knowledgeable of both the animals and the area. There is a covered walking bridge, a small pond, petting zoo type animals, and an old Amish farmhouse to explore. The place was beautiful and the people were very friendly.

This was So. Much. Fun! We took the buggy ride through the farm and got to feed and touch the animals. That was about an hour long. Then you get to walk through some of the areas with the birds and other animals. That took about another 30-45 minutes. They were kind there and I even got a cute t-shirt. Many of the animals can be fed (there’s a couple that can’t) and you get up close and personal with many of them as well. We even had one animal come into the buggy under our legs trying to get to our food bowls. It was a great time even when you don’t have kids. You also don’t have to take the buggy ride and can drive thru it but then you don’t get the narrative so I recommend the buggy ride. I also loved that many of the animals coexist together without boundaries or fences around each kind. Do this if you’ll be in the area!

We originally thought a drive-through zoo would be silly but we were pleasantly surprised. They and an incredible amount of variety of animals and we really had a lot of fun. Next time I would invest in a wagon ride through the park as it would be more hands on. The staff was very friendly. Definitely worth the stop.
