I will start by saying I am a big supported of local farms and believe in animal welfare. I love the farm and feel that the "farm" animals are treated with kindness and love. My family and I got great pleasure of feeding the goats, llamas, and sheep. The tractor ride and horse drawn hay ride were very nice, especially on a late summer afternoon.
I think they can do without the "zoo" part; perhaps expand more on the "farm" aspect. The zoo animals seemed stressed - pacing back and forth. The nocturnal animals (skunk, raccoon were wide awake during the day and again paced). The enclosures seem small and isolated - even my 6 year old commented on how sad the bears looked.
Overall - I would recommend for other families, as I said the farm part is very nice and the grounds are beautiful - but I wish they would consider moving the zoo animals to a sanctuary or at the very least, offer larger enclosures with additional stimulation.
It was a little pricey, compared to other places like it - a little much for a big family ($15 2yrs +); under 2 free
