Visitors’ Reviews

“This is a very fun place for the kids (and adults too!). They have a wide variety of interesting animals. They have a grocery shop and a fun souvenir shop also. They can host birthday parties for the kids which is great. My niece loved it!”

Barbara W

Very nice family farm with lots of great animals. When I went they had giraffes that you could get close to and feed, very nice especially for children. Try the home made coffee cake, it was fantastic…

Alex Alvarez

Had my daughters birthday here and it was the most well oiled machine. Everything was done so well, the kids had plenty of times with the animals and were herded along perfectly. Couldn’t recommend them enough. Thanks Al for all your help!
