This was our second stop here on this years vacation. We visited about two years ago and had alot of fun. For only $5 a person, you get a large cup of goat/donkey's/deer/ostrich food and a cup of lorakeet nectar. The good part is there are alot of people who drop their food on the ground, so if you just stop and take the time to pick it up, you can be there for hours feeding all the door and donkey's and other animals.
They added ducks to their animals and the give you a token to get a handful of duck food to feed the ducks.
Our family has two teenage boys, and my husband (who is NOT an animal lover). Well, we convinced him to come in with us since he didn't the last time we were here and he had a blast! Even he said he had alot of fun feeding the donkey's - they were so gentle.
Basically, this is a mini zoo with goats, donkey's, deer, ostrich, ducks, and lorakeets. You can stay as long as you like and buy more food if you need more.
They even have a small shopping area outside when you go to leave if you want a souvenier.
P.S. Almost forgot, but on weekends they have monster truck tours in the desert. We were not able to take advantage of this as we were there on a weekday.
This is the best kept secret and isn't that easy to find. Word of warning - in order to get to the ranch, you can see it from the highway, but you have to get off the highway and turn down a dirt road alongside the highway...it is not very well marked.
We asked the owners why they don't advertise more and they said if they did, they wouldn't be able to handle that volume of business.
Well worth the stop if you enjoy animals!
