Brought a 1.5 year old and had an amazing time. Half the facility is open fields with deer and goats running around. The other half is similar to most petting zoos, where you can get close to all kinds of animals without getting too close.

Took my kids here to see all the deer and other wildlife. Really nice place with lots of roaming deer, chickens, rabbits and goats. Also offer pony rides and food to feed the animals. Animals are well taken care of and was a fun experience.
