First of all, it is not a petting zoo. It is simply a place where some farm animals are kept and you may see them through cages. The most you can pet is their dog - a nice one though. Better go to a zoo.

Really nice place for very young people. They also run horse riding and sleigh rides from here. Only downside is the cafe is only open 10am to 1pm

We to this zoo as part of a guided cross country ski treck, mainly to see the reindeer, which were very cute. The inside collection was quirky and with only guinipigs to 'pet'. The center has a hut with fire pit which our day guide...More

We visited here because we was going horse riding next door. Small selection of animals but in the snowy conditions quite picturesque. Nice cafe and renowned berry juice.
