About

ABOUT

Darby Acres Farm is a family-run 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.

"We genuinely love animals and are strong advocates for animal education, encouraging all to continue to educate and entertain generations on the importance of all animals and how they affect our lives."
