We stop here each summer for the kids. They really enjoy the pony rides here. They say that anyone weighing less than 100 lbs and measuring under 56 inches tall can ride their ponies. However, I think our kids may be outgrowing the ponies before...More

We love the baby goats - they are soft and cuddly - if you can catch them. Some still had the umbilical cord still attached they were so young. Other great animals to feed besides the goats, deer and camel are fun.

This was me and my mom's second visit to the Deer Farm. We also brought my 6 year old nephew. He loved being in the deer pen. He also enjoyed feeding all the animals. He also enjoyed playing with the cat indoors.

We had a great time in the petting zoo, our 2 yr old had a blast feeding the goats. The horse back rides were great and being able to ride with our son was awesome. Highly recommended

We took 4 children and they had a great time. There were baby goats to snuggle and deer, llama, horses, ponies to feed. You purchase feed cups at the beginning and can refill along the way. It was a great time for everyone!

First we took our teenage daughters to ride horses. That was an awesome experience and worth the money. I think it’s great that they take the horses from kill shelters and train them for riders that are small. We then went to the actual deer...More

What an experience to be able to get to feed deer, goats, camels and even a Zonky! We purchased two apples and a large cup of feed and it lasted us for the entire farm. We had fun being able to get into the pins...More

Hi Holly! Although we'd love to accommodate dogs, we can't let them inside the petting zoo. No matter if it's the smallest teacup Chihuahua or a Great Dane, our deer catch their scent and it can cause them to panic (as... More
