Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer...

Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm Riding Stables. You’re going to love our unique barnyard environment, nestled on 143 acres of a beautiful mountain property. Bring the family to meet, pet and feed our friendly animals, including goats, deer, camels, elk, reindeer, emu, zebra, exotic cattle, watusi, zonkeys, and so much more! You can even walk amongst our tame fallow deer. After the zoo, the little ones can enjoy a ride on one of our gentle ponies, led by Mom or Dad. Or, the whole family can take a relaxing horseback ride through our wooded Smoky Mountain home, led by our courteous and experienced guides. We hope to see you soon!

We took our 5 and 6 year old daughters here last summer. They loved it. They were able to feed and pet most all the animals. They really enjoyed the baby goats, and all the deer. We look forward to visiting again.

We go at least once each year and love it as much today as the very first time. Employees are friendly and informative. The animals are obviously well taken care of. It's a great way to spend couple hours. They have a small picnic area as well. Always look forward to the next visit

Reasonably priced and lots to see. It was so awesome to get so up close and personal with such sweet animals, especially the elk calfs! Very friendly and down to earth staff. Military discount! Highly recommend for all ages. Tip: if you plan on going here don't come in your best dressed. Wear something causal that you wouldn't mind getting... More

This was our second visit. This year we decided to do the trail rode also. We couldn't be happier with our experience again today. Thank you to the staff for all they do. All the animals are sweet, and we'll kept. The goats and fallow deer are just to cute!

The staff does a great job of going through a mini education session before riding and they provide a new riding mount stand . Had a wonderful guide Kay ,... More

Our 5 year old had a blast and absolutely loved feeding all the animals! It was nice that we could actually pet all of them (including the camels, zebras, and kangaroos) and feed almost all of them. Definitely get the apples and big feed cup - it's worth it! We also did the pony ride and our daughter really enjoyed... More

We took our 6 and 3 year old on a Sunday afternoon after lunch. It was so much fun! we purchased just grain at first to feed the animals, but apples are easier for little hands. Our 3 year old was scared at first, but he braved up at the end and was feeding and petting all the animals. It's... More
