A wonderful family run business. Lots of animals, $1 to buy animal food. The highlight for our 2 1/2 yr old was the pony ride ($5). Also a great park for the kids to keep entertained, picnic tables and bbqs.

It was such a cool thing to do with kids and it was even cooler getting to feed the animals and rode on the pony.

My 4 year old enjoyed himself. Probably wasn't as much to see as what we'd expected. Lots of the same animals. Goats, horses... it was quite cold the day we went, didn't take us long to get round, probably half an hour. Pricing was quite...More

We took our 4 year old here this morning for a fun time seeing the animals. We purchased feed for the animals which she enjoyed. Great walking around in the "farm like" environment. Would not go here without kids as for adults it gets a...More

Went to the place with my 6 y old son, he really enjoyed feeding the animals. They also offer Pony and train rides for some extra fees. Overall I found the place and the pricing reasonable and worth a visit with kids. They may need...More
