Darby Acres Farm - Petting Farm, Interactive, Parties, Horseback Lessons

Darby Acres Farm and Darby Safari
are family owned and operated.

“This is our family’s labor of love, done strictly for the fun and the joy it brings us in working as a team and having such a great time teaching and learning together.“ We simply want to share the happiness of our wonderful animals with those who would like to meet them and enjoy their company as we do.”


The traveling petting zoo team operates on a Part-Time foundation to share the animals with others while helping to aid in the costs of caring for our large animal family, including the animals we rescue. 

While the traveling petting zoo is a part-time endeavor,
the animals are our full time passion and they are very dear to our heart.  Each and every animal you meet is a genuine part of our family. 

We are very excited when we are able to share the love and affection our animal family gives us, with you!

Darby Acres Farm is a family-run traveling petting zoo, started by husband and wife team, Dwayne and Jennifer; they named the "farm” after their daughter, Darby.

 
Their mutual genuine love for animals found them adopting, rescuing and caring for many animals on their property; many of whom they have raised since birth.  They truly enjoy the love from all of their animals and  take pride in nurturing animals back to health and making them a permanent part of their extended family.






The family team enjoys sharing the animals for education and for the enjoyable excitement the animals bring to both children and adults. 



The “farm” is a hobby of care and compassion for the family.  The husband and wife team are both devoted to and love their Full-Time Careers.  They enjoy spending their time together caring for and rehabilitating their animals and sharing the enjoyment of the animals while educating others about them.
 


The traveling petting zoo helps with the expenses for the care they give all of their animals, including rescue animals and the entire farm family. 



Donations are
always welcome !

USDA Licensed: 
This means that our animals are certified as healthy, and all required vaccinations are up to date. The quarters for the animals are inspected for cleanliness and safety. USDA inspection occurs regularly, so that you may be assured of a healthy, well cared for, and tame traveling petting zoo for your event. Darby Acres Farm exceeds all USDA requirements for our animal's care, nutrition, transportation, cleanliness and living.  You may be surprised to learn that all businesses that have animals for parties, or to be shown to the public must be licensed and monitored by the USDA. This means we are subject to pop inspections on our farm and in the field to be sure our animals are being properly cared for and are healthy.  Exotic Animals are captive bred.
