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!

This time, I let my kids give the rating because we went there for them. Not many places let you go in with the deer, but this place does and you can feed them. Not only them, but you can feed almost all the critters there. I LOVED feeding the 2 camels. My daughter's favorite was the Zonkey and my... More

Today my son, his girlfriend and myself went on a hour Trail ride with our guide Billy. It was an absolutely terrific time and Billy was an awesome guide! We will definitely be back to ride again

We have a family of 8 with age groups from baby to grandparents and we loved this!! The place was clean and didn't smell bad even though it was very hot. The animals were friendly, healthy, and happy. Great place to visit!!! Everyone found a favorite animal... Even our 10 month old fell in love. 😍😄😄

Our group ranging from 2 years to 70 visited today. The price is better than a lot of local attractions and you can take your time walking around. They have a nice selection of animals. You can go in the pens with the goats and deer. There are a few hoses outside the pens to wash your hands and a... More

Took our two children for their first chance to ride ponies. The small looping trail was just the right size for both of them. The shade along it was perfect for the hot summer day. The petting zoo looked like a lot of fun also. Great day overall. A word of caution go slow on the road up to the... More

We've been vacationing here for several years now, and this was one of the best stops for little one that love animals. The prices are good. The staff is courteous, and the animals all seem well cared for. My younger two opted for the pony rides and loved it.

My family loved this, the staff is very friendly, it's kind of out in the middle of nowhere but well worth the drive they offer pony and horseback rides also. Would come again

The Deer Farm is a great place for families looking to enjoy animals. It is a ton of fun for a very affordable price. Our daughter and us enjoyed feeding and petting the animals. We recommend buying some apples to feed the animals. The pony rides are fantastic for getting some pictures at.

My family of four absolutely loved our experience at the Deer Farm. The workers were extremely nice and courteous. We took our daughters, 5 and 2, through the petting zoo. The animals seemed very happy, well-fed, and active. My girls especially enjoyed seeing the Fallow Deer exhibit. However, I learned a long time ago, never trust a one-hump camel. Hahahahaha!

This is a bit of a remote location but has lots to offer children. Pony rides are led by an adult accompanying the child i.e. Not a staff person. Ponies are well behaved and ride is in the shade. There are goats, deer, camels horses, pigs ducks and zebra. You can see and feed most of the animals for an... More
