Reviewed 3 July 2018

Always good experience here. You can also learn something new each time you go as there are many trained staff and volunteer to assist. They have a good variety of farm animals with hands on fun. You can buy eggs and chickens there too.

This public access barn features bunnies, chicks, cats, pigs, sheep, goats and a small assortment of other, larger farm animals. Admission is by donation, and if you take some kids you will most likely feel that it's worth chipping in. Many animals are available for petting or holding, and the staff (both paid and volunteer) are very conscientious about supervising children. (Volunteering to be on staff is a great opportunity for teens and pre-teens.) There's a large hand-washing facility in the petting building. Check out the billy goats - they're enormous!

What a neat idea! I absolutely loved seeing all of the animals - there were so many! And I really enjoyed holding the baby chicks. Man, were they cute! Despite the barnyard smells, this was a great experience, and it functions on donations, so give generously to this unique and worthwhile organization!
