A prepaid reservation is required to visit our private property.
* Tour appointments are scheduled online, through our online scheduling software below.
* We are no longer open to the public. We would like to be able to share our animals with everyone, however, a prearranged appointment is now necessary and required to visit our private property. *We kindly ask that you do not show up to our private property without a prepaid appointment. We could be caring for an animal in need, entertaining a scheduled event, working with an already scheduled pony ride or tour, etc. We regret that we will have to turn away anyone that arrives without a prearranged-prepaid, scheduled appointment. Thank you in advance for your understanding!
**NOTE: PLEASE DRESS APPROPRIATELY FOR A VISIT TO THE FARM AND/OR SAFARI****
*If there has been recent rain, it will likely be muddy or wet throughout the grounds
so don't forget your rain boots
and we recommend not wearing any attire that you are worried about getting dirty.
