We found this place via the internet of things to do in Napier. We went with an open mind, but were disappointed to see how run down it was and many of the animals in dirty and muddy / swamped pens. I thought a lot of the animals seemed sad and not in the mood for interaction with humans. The... More

The young lady who was running the place was super helpful. We had a pony ride and a ride on the "train". Spent time... More

This was my first visit to the Farmyard Zoo with Leon and both of us thoroughly enjoyed it. It was great to walk around and feed the animals and Leon could pat them through the fence. The staff were very helpful and demonstrated that they really did care about the animals.

Love the range of animals and set up. Fabulous photo opportunities and chance to get close as well as touch or handle or feed some animals. Children love it there and adults too

Kids had a great time wandering around, feeding and patting the animals and playing in the huge playground area. Highlight was bottle feeding the lambs. Great activity for kids who love animals but haven't had a lot of exposure to them. Finish off with lunch at Clearview Vineyard around the corner :)

This was a third visit with our grandchild on her eight birthday. The staff in this family run business is just amazing, they are like bees seeing to all the guests needs and nothing is too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit again, and had a relaxing and eventful time, riding the ponies, feeding the lambs and all the... More

We really enjoyed this farmyard. With a wide range of animals to pat, feed and ride. There is a great kids play area and train rides will make for a grat family day out. Very reasonable priced and friendly helpful staff.

The most amazing atmosphere for any family you can even take a picnic and eat on the picnic tables and grass area provided next to the playground
