Many pictures are available on our home page for you to "get the feel" of the trails you will be riding and the views you will see. No experience is necessary. A weight limit on riders of 250 pounds and no children under the age of 8 years old. At present we can accommodate 8 riders at a time. We are not qualified or certified to handle trail riders with special needs and will not take them on our trail rides. Thank you for your cooperation. We can offer a hand held pony or horse ride for these riders.

Petting Zoo Only
With the exception of our mini donkey "Sam" we purchase baby animals each year in the spring to have little and cute young animals for children (and adults) to enjoy. We hand raise them and they are all loving and friendly. Our Traveling Zoo consists of a Lamb, Goat, Several Bunnies, Calf & Mini Donkey. Please feel free to ask questions about our zoo animals while we are at your party, we love to educate people about farm animals and their uses! We set up a cage fence at your party in a 12 x 12 foot area and use our own tent if needed. Children and adults may get in the fence with the animals to brush and pet them. There is no feeding allowed as we don't want anyone to get accidentally bit!

On The Farm Visits! *
We don't supply the party, but we can supply the Fun with the Animals!
You could bring your family or a group to our farm to interact with the Petting Zoo and Pony Rides. We are located in the country with a beautiful hill top view of the valley. We highly recommend this option as there is more animals to see and farm life to enjoy!
Coming in 2014! Our On The Farm Zoo Visits are expanding! Really Exploding! We are growing and have an outstanding choice of farm animals coming this summer. Its going to be exciting and we cant wait for our grand opening! Keep watching for updates!
