It's expensive, $11 for my 2 year old and more than that for accompanying adults, even if you're only a supervisor for the kids using the facility. Feel like there should be some leeway on that, at least maybe for disabled vets and elderly family...More

This was a good place for the little ones to go, but other than just getting to pet and hold a few animals, there wasn't that much for them to see or do. The train ride and pony rides seemed a little expensive and didn't...More

I didn't think this was worth the price. The two younger ones loved it. They had fun feeding the goats. But if we ever come back won't come here again.

Went with the kids ages 4, 8 and 1. It was awesome that you could get so up close with the animals and pet them!! You can even bottle feed a calf. Well worth the money spent! The staff is sooo friendly too! Great place!...More

Loved it! I took my 8 month old, and she loved holding the chicks and baby goats. It was super clean and in open space. Will definitely go back!

We get a season pass each year as the grandkids love it so much. I have ages 1,4,10. They have events going on each day, but you can just wander about and interact with the animals.

My 18 month old baby really loved it here. I had a great time too. We didn't stay as long as we would have wanted to because there is a desperate lack of shade. You're exposed to the sun the entire time you're there. They...More
