Owner description: At The Farm at Walnut Creek, you will find both a unique and educational experience for the entire family. On your visit, you will have the opportunity to view and feed 650 domestic species as well as animals from six different continents – buffalo, llamas, giraffes, deer, elk and much more. Enjoy hand feeding these animals from the comfort of your own car or take our leisurely horse drawn wagon ride with our experienced Amish guides. Also, plan to visit our barns - all built to resemble a working Amish farm. Depending on the season, you can experience plowing, thrashing, sowing seeds, growing produce, canning, milking, quilting, and baking. Be sure to take a stroll through our non-electric farm houses, the produce stand for all of your fresh produce needs, and don’t forget your camera to capture the memories. Be sure to ask questions of our Amish staff - they'll be happy to explain. We recommend you budget about 2 to 3 hours for a visit to The Farm.

I really liked touring the huge farm / zoo. You start by doing the drive through zoo either with your own car, or with a group on a wagon. You can get buckets of feed. It's mostly deer that come eat from your hand, but we also had elk and llamas poking their heads in our car. After this you can do the walking part of the zoo, which has some lemurs and exotic birds. If you have feed left you can feed the goats along the way. You can then self-tour the huge double amish house, the barn with animals, the equipment barn, and the chicken house. No one lives in the Amish houses, but they have furniture set up with quilts on the beds. Don't miss the basement which has a huge wall of home-canned goods like grandma used to make. The grounds are self-tour, and there's no signs with information about Amish culture. I'd like to see less flies on the animals and less cages, but for the price, it was a great value and a great afternoon.

There is a choice of driving your own vehicle (SLOWLY) through the park or riding the wagon which is great fun and unique for the kids. Buckets of feed are provided. Check in advance for any special activities, daily schedules, etc. Recommend Spring or Fall as best season visits - Summer is very hot and can limit the animal movement. If you do go on a hot day, go early! Take plenty of water to stay hydrated. Located close to access roads but far enough to enjoy the rural setting. Friendly people and friendly animals. Be respectful of the locals, drive safe, watch for horses, buggys, & bicycles.

The wagon ride was fun, with various animals running up to get snacks from buckets of food we all were given, and the scenery was lovely. However I do not appreciate seeing caged animals displayed on the property. I also have no appreciation for birds whose wings are clipped. There was beautiful macaw that comes down a tree to get fed a peanut from the wagon driver. While some think this is cute, it's just for show - the bird is put in the tree in the morning to do this "trick," then put away at night. This is a commercial business for entertainment, not really a farm. So I have mixed emotions, I did enjoy seeing the animals, just not the caged part - that saddens me.

We visited with family and some Amish friends. We ALL loved this place!!! We visited just after a lot of baby animals were born. There was a baby camel, baby buffalo, lots of baby deer, baby horses, baby pigs, baby goats, and I am sure I forgot someone... Anyway, the tour of the houses was educational... and fun. The horse -drawn wagon ride was fun, also! The tour guide was humorous and knowledgeable. This "farm" is really a safari-zoo!
