If you are real zoo goer this is not going to be one of the best ways you've ever been to but it is a great first Zoo for a young child. We brought our niece here and she had a blast. The cost is acceptable and there is a barn where you can Feed & Pet some animals which are mostly goats.

Nice place to take young kids. You can drive through and park your car to get out so you can get closer to the animals. Some of the animals you can buy food for and feed them by hand. There is also a small barn full of little goats. You can buy feed or milk to give them. Not an expensive place. They also have a museum and picnic benches so you can sit and eat. You can spend a nice day there looking at animals and relaxing.

Drove an hour just to find out you were closed when I called on Friday to confirm you'd be open. It's not even due to weather as it's just cloudy. Incredibly disappointed!

My husband and I came across this place while looking for antique markets. So glad we did!! It is just great!! Very reasonable admission fee and $5 for a big container of food! The animal enclosures are large and clean. You can see that the animals are very well cared for and healthy. We had such a great time. The animals ate friendly and we just loved the petting barn. You can feed baby kids and lambs bottles it was just wonderful. There was also the sweetest little donkey that loved to be pet. And we actually pet a zebra!! We highly recommend this petting zoo Wish we lived closer but hope to get back one day. It is worth the 2 hr drive

This was a great place to bring my children. They have quite a few animals in wide-open spaces. They have a great petting zoo barn which includes a llama, donkey, pigs and baby goats. My children got to bottle feed the baby goats. They have all kinds of things there, such as, miniature horses, bison, and even a zebra. Their musuem have life-like taxidermy animals in a panorama view including vegetation, rocks and characteristic displays. There's a small playground outside for the kids too.
