Wonderful experience for the kids! Feed was cheap so kids could feed animals all morning! Staff friendly and knowledgable!

Our kids (age 3 and 7) had so much fun the first time we actually went back an unplanned, second time in a 5 day trip to Door County!

The family that runs this place clearly loves both animals and children. The animals are happy and well kept and the respect and consideration flows to the amenities for people, too. There is a 'petting zoo' type area where kids can feed the animals, but the best part (for the adults!) is a large fenced-in area full of toys for all ages, ringed by picnic tables, that makes you feel you've been invited to a backyard party.

Between the petting/feeding area and the 'backyard', there is an 'outhouse' but don't be fooled - it has electricity and indoor plumbing as well! In addition to a flush toilet and sink there is a well-stocked baby changing table - very thoughtful. Concessions and souvenirs are available for sale and prices are reasonable. You're also welcome to bring a picnic lunch.

The owners are around for questions but unobtrusive and welcoming. We spent a couple hours here each time and ended up getting season passes our second day. Sitting in the shade watching the kids happily play was very relaxing. Well worth the price of admission - twice!

The owners of Plum Loco were around to answer questions and were not only very knowledgeable, but kind. The farm was clean and well maintained. They have an amazing, hand made play area for the kids. Our children spent over 2 hours playing in the miniature sized barn, general store and house.

Plum Loco was nice and relaxing. Staff were very loving and friendly. Animals were tame and social, and if you have kids who don't want to go by animals they have a bunch of play houses, toys, and books outside for them to enjoy.
