Some people have complained about the goats but it was our favorite part of this place. Get in there and let them crawl on you -- made us adults feel like kids again! Great time and so glad we stopped by.

Had a great time petting the rabbits, horses, and goats. There were many other animals to see and feed. There was also nice shaded area to picnic. They have a lot of different gifts for all ages in the gift shop.
