Great variety of animals that love to interact! Be sure to purchase some apples (50 cents each, they slice them for you) upon your entry.

Our 3 year old loved this place! It is small but with quite a few different animals as well as lots of friendly goats and deer. Older kids may not last too long here but it is perfect size for toddlers and pre-school kids.

You can do it without paying the petting zoo admission. When you are driving in, there will be one road to take for the petting zoo and one to take for the horse stables. They are in different areas.
