The animals are exotic and very interesting but very sad that they left several in the hot sun with no shade or water. The handler did not seem to care which broke our heart.

I must admit that I have not visited the actual farm, but Jo-Don Farms brought two camels to a Travel and Adventure Show that I recently attended in Santa Clara, California. I was very disturbed by how the camels were treated (forced to walk small...More

The Zoo at Jo-Don Farm is a great attraction where you get a close up experience with a wide variety of animals. Purchase the grain and fruit/vegetable combo, and you'll enjoy feeding the animals. Great for families and especially the kids!

I recently took my 2 children there for an afternoon. I know they are a small privately owned zoo so I took that into consideration when walking around. The animals all looked very well cared for but I had a hard time with the size...More

Went here on a Sunday afternoon. The price is relatively inexpensive and it is wonderful to be able to see the animals up close. There is an area where you can have a birthday party outdoors or sit at the picnic tables. Nice, relaxing visit.
