I highly recommend Plum Loco as a place to spend a wonderful couple of hours with your young children. I have been here with my granddaughter several times (she is 3.5 year old now) and she always is excited about going back.

The main attraction, of course, is the animals. They have the usual assortment of farm animals (see web site), but the neatest ting is that they provide a bucket of food as part of the admission and they give you excellent instruction on how to feed each of the animal s properly. This real helps with smaller children who may be intimidated by the larger horses and other animals at first.

As interesting as the animals may be, nothing will hold the attention of a 3 or 4 year old very long. So another feature of Plum Loco is that they have a kid-sized town that children can play in as well as other detraction (games, wagons, tractors, etc.) to keep children engaged. They can keep going from one thing to another as their whims change. It is a lot of fun for them, but also for the adults.

Go and have fun.

Perfect for young kids. Wide variety of animals to see and feed. Fun play yard with play barns and small vehicles to ride on. Bathroom situation clean but primative, like a fancy shed. We went on a cloudy day, but on a very hot day it might be hard to find shade.

We spent the morning at plum loco and the kids loved it. The play area is well supplied and kept the kids entertained for several hours. They are even set up well if you brought your own lunch. The location is good from anywhere in door county. They even have a great bathroom with changing station, not an outhouse. This was a great way to spend half of the day.

The adults and kids in my party all had a great time (kids 3, 5, 5, 8). It was a great animal experience. Feed buckets were $2 for a bunch of carrots and some grain. The animals are super friendly. Bathroom facility available and was nicer than expected. The little play area was fun for my age group. It started to rain and we were offered rain checks, but we had so much fun we didn't feel the need to come back right away!
