  • If you aren’t looking for this place you might miss it. We did miss the turn and had to circle back, so be ready. Be sure to wear closed toed shoes, because it’s a farm. Animals, dirt, potential mud a...  more »
  • My wife and I love petting zoos and animals in general. This place was the best of both worlds. Friendly staff and an awesome collection of animals that you can get really close and personal with. Go ...  more »
  • The lady seemed nice who worked there but the place was really run down. Some of the animals were poorly groomed and we got attacked by fleas. It was really dirty. Would never go back.  more »
  • My daughter and I enjoyed our time here at the petting zoo, but I don't think it should be coined that. The only legitimate part of the zoo that was petting friendly was a small enclosure in which there were a handful of goats. The website displays the animals differently and I believed we were going to get an up close and have a personal encounter with animals you don't see at your every day zoo. I was a bit disappointed as I had misread on the website about the camel rides. They are ONLY on weekends and certain holidays. So do not get your hopes up about going there during the week and riding on one of these majestic creatures. Overall it was relatively cool. My daughter (12) seemed to enjoy the wallaby, camels, miniature ponies, and monkeys. The animals are well cared for there, but I think the grounds should have been better kept. It would seem the facility is extremely understaffed. All in all it was a nice trip during our stay over in Homosassa Springs.
  • We had a great time till the seat on the train ride broke while it was moving and I was sitting on it with my g-son. And no I'm not large woman.. But it was a fun day and worth the money 😀
  • I was nervous when we pulled in. It didn't look as nice as the website, but we actually had a great time. Buy food to feed the animals. That's what makes the experience fun.
  • Cute little place. It was a good way to spend a couple of hours. The staff was very friendly.
  • We had an awesome time. The staff was friendly and helpful. The petting zoo is clean with lots of friendly animals. A great place to take the kids.
