Love this place keeps the kids entertained as there is plenty to do. There is plenty of space to eat picnics Which is good. The kids enjoyed feeding the animals and holding the bunnies

Visited with my 17 month old, even though young he thoroughly enjoyed all the animals and the tractors by the barn. I recommend to buy some feed for the animals. Will be going back the next time we visit.
