Visited to just see the dog jumping into the pool but enjoyed the property very much. Long drive from St. Louis but well worth it after we got there. So much to see and my daughter loved all the animals.

Took the kids for a day of loving critters. Very fun. They loved the cat condo and the rabbits and chickens. We walked the grounds. Terrific.

45 minutes out of St. Louis. Worth the drive for younger kids. Barn with farm animals kids may touch, smell and experience first hand. Dogs give demonstrations of jumping to catch a frisbee (landing in a swimming pool), cats and dogs to pet. Nice gift shop for pet owners. Snacks and hot dog type food available. Make a reservation, but it is FREE.

all free but You have to call to make a reservation before visiting. They are pretty flexible.

One of the best kids educational farm animal attractions weve seen yet and the price is perfect! The best parts are the dog stunt show and getting close and being able to pet farm animals, even chickens.

The place was very clean and the facility was well taken care of. The grounds were pretty with lots of flowers, waterfalls and tiny ponds.

The staff was friendly.

We visited on a day it was raining and had the place practically to ourselves. We were traveling from Springfield, MO to St. Louis so it made sense to stop by on the way. It's a little far out and doesn't offer all day fun if your going out and back into St. Louis. If your passing by its defineltly worth the stop!

Hope I helped ya.

Great place to spend the day and it's free! They have seasonal events throughout the year; October brings 100's of jack o'lanterns a hayloft maze and hayride. Purina also hosts numerous dog shows and events at the farm. Kids and adults will enjoy the exhibits and demonstrations like cow milking.
