Great place. Like being on an African safari, without the lions and tigers. Animals come right up to your car to be fed.

There were 6 of us in a mini van-ages 7yrs to 53 yrs. We all LOVED it! At first we had the side doors open lol After the first group of animals came up-we definately closed the doors and just opened the windows. It was a bit scary until then. We didnt expect that many different animals. None were mean in any way-they just wanted food. Even got a free steering wheel cleaning :)Would definately recommend this to everyone. We even did the camel rides for the kids--$5.00 each couldnt beat it. Food buckets were 3 for $10.00. All the animals were very well taken care of. They had plenty of space. Bathroom is an outhouse--but they do have sanitizer there and also in another section. Petting zoo was ok-alot of animals the kids could pet. Definately took alot of pictures here.

We had a groupon ticket for here and had a warm early spring day today to go. Glad we went! We got the 3 buckets of pellets for $10 and it was plenty for the drive thru and even a little bit leftover for the petting zoo part. They also have little quarter machines at the petting zoo part for smaller pellets there. We also did the hour long camel trek with reservations, which I think is over priced at $60 a person. We were the only ones doing the trek today so it made it nicer because Matt the guide, led the camels and talked to us about the different animals and answered our questions. You also get a free souvenir photo on the camel. We loved the pot belly pigs! Several were pregnant and their bellies were practically on the ground! And the tiny young ones were so cute. Animals walking around everywhere. They also have hand cleaning station and anti bacterial hand sanitizer which was REALLY appreciated. There is also a pavilion with picnic tables to eat what food you bring since there is no food available for purchase there.

This is one experience that more than lived up to its billing. We took our two granddaughters, ages 9 and 10, who are visiting from out of state. We thought it might be great for them, and it definitely was that, but it was just as much fun for the adults!! The animals were gentle, but not at all shy about putting their heads into the car in search of food; the three buckets lasted through the drive and left a few morsels for the petting zoo. Unanimous favorites as fun and delughtful were the potbellied pigs (who followed us faithfully the whole time), yaks, cows, camels, and llamas. There were many, many baby animals throughout the ranch and it was great fun to see them up close moms. If you enjoy animals and are looking for an experience to brighten your day, this is the place to go!

I usually avoid private "zoos" because too many are very poorly maintained. But I had read a lot of great things about this farm and decided to give it a try.
The animals have SO much space and basically live in freedom. They get to choose if they want to go to the cars (there's food, so mostly they want to...) and if they get sick of humans they have so much space to retreat to that we didn't even see the donkeys the first time we went through. They are also very well cared for and all the people we met there genuinly care about their well being.
The guy who managed the registratiion was the nicest guy I have ever met and he has such a strong connection with the animals.
The whole atmosphere there is really relaxed and friendly.

The safari itself is so much fun because even animal lovers get scared in the beginning when the Llamas and Emus with their death-stare stick their heads in your car. But the animals are all really nice (they tell you which ones you shouldn't feed by hand because they'll bite, but you can still pet those).

We also did the camel safari and had a blast again. We were two 20-something girls and went to days in a row and still had a GREAT time both times.

Would be my number one thing to do again in the area.
