  • We came with our kids and it was such a cool experience! They loved it and were able to hold and interact with lots of animals. 
  • Wow we could have easily stayed here for hours and did! Friendly staff, great choices, tons of things to see and do many learning opportunities. We will be back for sure. 
  • I like that the Critter Barn volunteers are friendly, and that anyone can come regardless of ability to pay, since they operate on donations. I have been there several times and have often wondered however about the overall safety and cleanliness of the facilities. For example, three porta-potties apparently serve as the permanent restroom facilities for what seemed to be nearly a hundred people there at my last visit (July 2016). A stainless steel trough and liquid soap pumps are provided for hand washing but the hose-style plumbing in that sink is awkward to use. No sign of any diaper-changing station for those with little ones. There are white bird droppings on the wooden fence where the public meets the indoor cows. Parking is limited, so cars often line the busy street in front of the farm. Each time I have visited, I have wondered whether Critter Barn might be subject to more business and/or environmental regulation if they had employees or charged admission. I have recently read that they are planning to move to a new location. I'm hoping that this new location is cleaner, safer, and is demonstrably better managed that the current facility appears to be.
  • Every time we visit my kids have a great time. They love seeing and holding the animals. One of my girls took Critter Camp this summer and is now able to volunteer. She gets excited to go each time and be part of the Critter Barn.
  • Very sweet animas and great people to take care of them!
  • Girls love this place, especially enjoy helping!
  • This place is wonderful. We love it!!
