Terrible place. Sad sad for true animal lovers!
May 2021 • Couples
The worst most upsetting "zoo" soo called rescue I have ever seen. Anyone who truly loves animals would be devastated at how these animals are over fed, housed poorly and not properly taken care of. All animals inside are in 2 small rooms, snakes right next to guinea pigs, nocturnal animals unable to sleep, racoon so fat her feet won't touch the ground. Pigs so overfed they need their eyelids cut, and won't even get up to eat because mounds of food are just sat in front of them. The smell was horrid and not farm bad, it was not cleaned gross. I'm from the country and know animal smell as opposed to just not cleaning properly. They even had candles burning everywhere.

A highlight of our trip

Love this cute little spot for rescued animals. You can buy feed and they will eat out of your hand. The smell is a bit strong if you aren’t used to country life!

Decent

It’s a pretty small petting zoo but the pony rides were nice. It’s a bit slow and it gets overly crowded, but I guess that is to be expected.

Better than expected!

I had thought it was just a roadside small attraction but there was a huge amount of variety of animals at this petting zoo. Protip - wear shoes as there are numerous areas where the deer and goats have gone to the bathroom, as well as muddy spots. The staff and animals were all friendly except for one alpaca which looked like it wanted to fight, a bully goat who, well, bullied other animals, and ostriches who are just natural SOBs. Well worth the visit!

Poor time management and messy stalls
May 2021 • Couples
First time coming here. We purchased 4 adult tickets at $9 a piece plus $6 for a feed bucket. The girl at the front counter failed to tell us there were 2 school groups ahead of us...

The barn yard section animals smelled like they hadn’t been cleaned today, and looked it. The baby alpaca was biting people.

The room past the front desk that allows you to see and actually hold animals is marked at 10 people, waaay more than 10 people packed in when we got here.

We waited for 45 minutes, the second school group was in there... the staff couldn’t commit to how long it would take or if we could step outside to wait until they were finished. They brought a baby possum into front area to attempt to appease everyone waiting but it was too little too late and only compressed groups of people into an even smaller area.

Frankly if we hadn’t already fed the farm animals while waiting I would have asked for a refund. If this is how it is on a week day morning, I’d hate to see a weekend...

My happy place

From1-100, this is the ideal place for anyone and everyone. There are so many animals there that you wouldn't typically see, and you get up close and personal. I recommend this place to everyone.

Bad service, stinky poop-filled grounds, farm animals

ANIMALS
Mainly farm animals with a few exotics in stinky cages. They actually have scented candles everywhere. One cage had what looked like dogs inside. Yep... puppies “that need a home.”

SERVICE
Arrived early and went in at 9:59 and asked “Are you open?” A very unpleasant worker said “we open at exactly 10:00.” Right behind me came a couple who said “2 tickets please” and she helped them. It was still 9:59. When they left she didn’t say anything to me. Ugh.

Very diverse crowd

I was surprised by the amount and variety of animals. My boys loved it. Funny to see different "personalities" in animals. Some reminded me of our elected officials. It was fun to pass the time and support a local business. Yes its smelly and its dirty but its a zoo!
