Our 3 year old loved it! He was a bit intimidated by some of the more pushy animals but fell in love with the goats. The pony ride was nice. The playground was fun. Getting to visit 3 days for the price is a huge bonus. Went mid afternoon on a Sunday and we pretty much had the place to... More

Way overpriced for the amount of attractions they have. At home this kind of petting zoo is free when you come to pick berries or buy pumpkins. So I expected a lot more for $75 usd. Kids still had fun of corse. Don't order chilli or pulled pork from the snack stand, stick to the nachos and hot dogs.

Way overpriced and to make matters worst you have to pay extra for the pony ride and train ride. The train ride was fun for the grandkids but the pony ride went around 3 time and they were done.Save your money and take the kids to the state fair where they can pet all the same animals

We really enjoyed our visit, however, most tourists are not in town for to utilize the 3 day pass that you pay for. I feel that the price is a bit unjust but the staff and the animals were delightful!

I thought it was overpriced at $11.50 per adult and kids have to be accompanied by an adult. Extra for pony and "train" rides and bring quarters to feed the animals. But my 7 year old granddaughter liked it. Timing is important "Train" rides (50 gal drums with cutout holes ) pulled by a lawn mower are approximately every hour... More

This is an expensive couple of hours- pony rides and train rides extra...it was about 99 degrees today and some of the animals were definitely suffering in the heat. Being raised on a farm, it was depressing- but goats were happy... and loved all of the attention - hence lots of happy children. Wait till October if you can as... More

Great place to introduce your kids to farm animals. Our grandson loved the baby goats. The pig race was hilarious to learn their treat at the end was kool aid.

Nice collection of baby animals here. Can go right in the pens to feed and pet them (goats, sheep, calves). They do pig races several times a day, that are entertaining. Price here is good for 3 days.
