Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer...

Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm Riding Stables. You’re going to love our unique barnyard environment, nestled on 143 acres of a beautiful mountain property. Bring the family to meet, pet and feed our friendly animals, including goats, deer, camels, elk, reindeer, emu, zebra, exotic cattle, watusi, zonkeys, and so much more! You can even walk amongst our tame fallow deer. After the zoo, the little ones can enjoy a ride on one of our gentle ponies, led by Mom or Dad. Or, the whole family can take a relaxing horseback ride through our wooded Smoky Mountain home, led by our courteous and experienced guides. We hope to see you soon!

I have visited the area ever since my children were small and my granddaughter wanted to ride a horse so we came to let her ride the ponies and found out what a great place this is. I would highly recommend this as a place to visit. Not only did my grandchildren love it so did the adults

My family and I went here yesterday and we loved it. It has some really cool animals, a herd of goats, deer, a camel, a zonkey, and a bunch more. The people are super friendly and go out of their way to help you. My children absolutely love feeding the animals! It's a little out of the way from the... More

My family of four (9 year old and 2 year old) went here yesterday while we are on vacation and ended up spending several hours here. We went to the petting zoo and did a horse back ride. I saw in some reviews that they felt it was a little pricey, but we felt just the opposite. We are from... More

We had 2 small children, ages 1 and 4, that loved the animals. They were able to get up close to pet and feed most of the friendly animals. Nice gift shop, back in the woods, on a mountain side, friendly and informative staff. The animals seemed to be well kept, clean areas, several places to sit and watch for... More

We went there today and it was by far our daughters, and my, favorite thing to do thus far in our trip. The animals are so friendly and cool to feed. You can also ride a pony if your little one is under 100lbs. Such an amazing experience. Don't miss out on doing this while you're in town.

For someone who loves animals and a lot archery hunter to be able to get close to some of these animals was a unique experience for even me at 32 yrs old. All the staff spoke and was beyond kind. Highly recommended if you enjoy animals and haven't got to experience big game up close and personal. The cows elk... More

Not cheap but you get to feed camels and a gigantic Belgian horse as well as a pen full of deer. They also have many many goats, two ostriches, a zebra and a pair of kangaroos. Great for younger kids. It was about $50 for a family of four. They also offer pony rides which we didn't do.
