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!

Very neat place if you like to feed all kinds of animals. They offer horseback riding but didn’t try that on this trip. Very fun spot to get up close to some different kinds of animals.

We stop here each summer for the kids. They really enjoy the pony rides here. They say that anyone weighing less than 100 lbs and measuring under 56 inches tall can ride their ponies. However, I think our kids may be outgrowing the ponies before...More

We love the baby goats - they are soft and cuddly - if you can catch them. Some still had the umbilical cord still attached they were so young. Other great animals to feed besides the goats, deer and camel are fun.

This was me and my mom's second visit to the Deer Farm. We also brought my 6 year old nephew. He loved being in the deer pen. He also enjoyed feeding all the animals. He also enjoyed playing with the cat indoors.

We had a great time in the petting zoo, our 2 yr old had a blast feeding the goats. The horse back rides were great and being able to ride with our son was awesome. Highly recommended

We took 4 children and they had a great time. There were baby goats to snuggle and deer, llama, horses, ponies to feed. You purchase feed cups at the beginning and can refill along the way. It was a great time for everyone!

Hi Holly! Although we'd love to accommodate dogs, we can't let them inside the petting zoo. No matter if it's the smallest teacup Chihuahua or a Great Dane, our deer catch their scent and it can cause them to panic (as... More
