  • To put this simply, I visited Toronto Zoo in July and this little placed was more enjoyable for me than the big production in Toronto. I didn't spend a lot of money, there were many animals of wide va...  read more »

  • Visited the farm zoo recently for the first time. I was very impressed with the zoo. Was great to see all the animals, though some were sleeping due to the time of day we were there. There is an area ...  read more »
  • I seriously love this place. It's so sad to see some of the larger animals in such small cages, but I understand with land and financial constraints, it's kind of turning into a small retirement home for a lot of older animals which is kinda great. :) still sad. But they do such good work here!
  • For a small rural zoo this place was great. Cost is reasonable. My 2.5 year old loved it. The big big big big Tiger was a hit as was the very tiny horse with a itchy bum. There are a few spots where you can pet the alpacas(?) Goats and deer. There are also zebras, lions a bear, monkeys, and many more. Corn feed is 0.25 so bring some quarters.
  • Our family got a season pass to the zoo, and it's one of the best things we have ever gotten. The kids love the animals, and it's a great way to spend a couple hours seeing wildlife. The zoo also advertises their dinner hour for the big cats, and while they aren't particularly aggressive when it comes to eating, the owner/manager of the zoo discusses the various animals she's feeding as she does it.
  • Lots of fun for everyone. Especially the kids. You can feed the deer and goats. Check out the zonkey. It's pretty exciting when all the monkeys start running around and screaming.
  • We go here year after year, with family an friends and we always have a great time! Can hand feed the deer and goats. My favorite animal is monkey boo boo (cause I have a funny story that happened) she has been there since I was a young child in the 1980's and I now get the opportunity to tell my stories to my little one. Other favorites are remembered and there plaques are able to be read throughout the facility. The owner, management and staff are all great.
