Petting Zoo Experience

Come visit our petting Zoo and feed our farm animals. We provide food with every entry for you to hand feed the animals and during the Spring/Summer season you can bottle feed our baby lambs.

Our farm animals are very friendly so you can get great pictures with each of them. Please book online as we only allow a limited number of people per day.

We had so much fun! Got to feed all the animals, including lambs, pigs and alpacas to name a few. Little one loved it. Elle showed us around everywhere and gave us some extra infos about the farm and the animals which was very nice!

Amazing experience at the petting zoo. The animals are all so friendly and cuddly! Feeding the lambs and calf was extra special. We loved seeing all their little personalities... the sassy llama gave us extra laughs, and the pigs had great squeals! Thank you, Steve, for a wonderful experience.
