An ok way to spend an afternoon. No staff here whatsoever, which is odd considering the types of animals here.? The price is right though. Saw a few neat snakes. Ok stop, if you happen to be in the area.

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

This farm has lots of unique animals and we loved the baby lambs! Better than the zoo. You can get closer to the animals. Some you can even pet. We pet a zebra! Watch out for the tiger if it is mating season. He will...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
