“Toddler fun”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Out if every thing we did while at the beach, this place was by far my 2 year old's favorite. He lived the chickens, the goats, and the ducks (some that were just visiting). He freaked out when we tried the pint ride, the staff was patient and tried to help ease his anxiety, but he wouldn't do it. They refunded my ticket (which I used to get more feed).

“Overpriced pony rides, fun to pet the animals”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

While the kids liked it, their favorite part were the peacock feathers (2 for $1 at the kiosk if you can't find one), this sounded a lot better on their website than it was and I felt it was overpriced, especially the pony rides. But it was something different to do.

$4 per person (adult & kids) plus $5 for the pony ride which is only one round on the interior of the farm. It lasted just a few minutes. While there are several enclosures to go into to pet the animals, it was mostly the goats and the chickens you get to see up close. The rabbits and turtles are in cages and cannot be held. The playground is nothing special, all the slides but the one covered were too hot to use. The place was pretty full with children on day/ field trips. We only spent about an hour there, this included petting various animals, the pony rides and playing on the playground.

Only porter potty bathrooms, but they did have large bottles of hand sanitizer outside every petting area.

“Worth the return trip!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

With our return to Virginia Beach/Sandbridge, we carved out time to return to Hunt Club Farm to enjoy their petting zoo and it was well worth it! The staff is extremely friendly, going out of their way to show our kids a very young baby rabbit and there was a nice variety of animals (goats, chickens, rabbits, turtles, geese, alpacas, horses, donkeys, other birds) to keep our kids interested. A great value for what you get, too!

Where else can you hold chickens in their coop and be just a few miles from the beach? Our daughters loves this place. Third visit and have had consistent friendly and affordable experience.
