Kids had a great time with new experiences and learning about animals. Viewing them in their natural habitat and getting an opportunity to interact with them was really good. We will definitely be going back.

Love it. We love when adults have more fun than the kids. We get so many uncles, aunts, friends that have to borrow kids so they think they can come to the farm. We are considering adopting kids out for farm tours (lol). Great to...More
