“Fun stop”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

We visited on a cool spring day so the owners thought the alligators might not be willing to eat. Feeding time was at noon so we didn't stick around to find out. We got to hold a baby alligator and feed donkeys, an emu, goats, sheep and fallow deer. They also have wolves, turkeys and a few more animals on site. The lady working the desk is great. The entry price is a little high, but I know it must be expensive to feed all those animals. Overall, a good way to spend an hour or so.

“Feeling like a kid again”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Went to the Alligator farm and even held a baby alligator. Enjoyed every minute of it. Super place to bring the kids. There is a petting zoo. Look outside before leaving and read the Baseball landmarks, throughout the town. Can't wait to bring the grandkids!

“Family Fun”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We went to the Alligator farm for spring break. They had a variety of animals in addition to the alligators. The staff was kind and made sure everyone had the opportunity to pet an alligator. It was a fun place to visit!
