Meet The Owners

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.

“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 empathy 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.” - Jen & Dwayne

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

Meet The Darby Acres Team


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 petting zoo for your tour/ 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.
