We absolutely loved this place. We surprised our daughter for her 16th birthday with a trail ride. Jeff and Amy where very accommodating! Jeff, Amy and their staff were very nice and helpful. I will defiantly go back to visit.

Dogs, dogs and more dogs. Teenager leads you on a group tour. They have many animals who have been rescued. Feed is $3 for bucket. Animals love to ‘steal’ the food. Wear comfortable shoes and old clothes. This is a farm environment. We really enjoyed...More

This is not a tourist attraction, but a private collection. I think they've done a good job with it. Fun for the kids.

We went to this ranch with my in-laws, my 2 year old and some relatives. It was nice and liked the experience. My son enjoyed interacting with the animals and feeding them. Definitely not the best organized place in the world but for a European...More

This is a fun place to take the kids. Kind of poorly kept pens for the animals which looked a bit sad. The animals who can eat the feed were funny. Goats got loose and tried to steal my bucket. This place needs some hand...More

We bought a groupon for this place and we're excited to check it out. It's a great idea in theory... And the place has some major potential...But to be honest we were very disappointed in almost everything about it. :( To start it was confusing...More

I guess, for the price of admission plus tour, I was expecting more, including maybe more of a tour. The 12/13 year old girl who led the tour was sweet, but she knew very little about the animals when asked a variety of questions. She...More

Yes, they do have a lot of different types of animals, but the entire experience was BLAH!! It was difficult to actually find the "ticket office", and once we found it, it smelled horrible & had a pile of dog hair/dirt swept in the corner....More

The two young ladies that did our tour lacked knowledge of the exotic animals. The zebras were no where to be found. Disappointing! We took our 10 yr. old granddaughter and she was ready to leave after 20 minutes. Not as much interaction as we...More
