What Others Have Loved About The Barnyard Zoo

    5 star review  Loved this petting zoo! The large goats and the donkeys were obsessed with our twin girls when we went last month! I’ve been to several petting zoos, but this one is my favourite. If you have any questions or even concerns, the owners and employees are very knowledgeable. We were told to come back next year with our girls and that we could have a picnic on the property, the baby chicks will come and join us. I am excited to do that and to laugh with our girls. FOR THE AWFUL REVIEWS ON HERE….clearly you have never been to a farm. Farms are dirty, and muddy…..some animals play in their water basins…they are living their best lives! All the animals have shelters and are well loved from what I saw as a visitor! We will definitely be going back for years to come!! THANK YOU!!

    5 star review  This place was amazing. Not sure why I see bad reviews here at all. The stalls all had shade for all animals. There was fresh water for all the animals. We took our son and brought a friend with her little girl and all of us had a blast feeding, petting the animals and the children also had a blast in the playground area. We spent 4 hours here easily and had a blast. Please go check out this little slice of heaven here. Your children will have a blast and the animals will warm your heart. They also sell some animals and fresh eggs. Great price and great time. Well worth the hour drive for us both and worth the price. This farm is a little gem in the Ottawa Valley. You were able to feed the animals as you went along seeing them at your own pace. The owner came and talked to us for a bit and was very friendly and lovely. This place is a must for families with little ones. You won't regret it,

    5 star review  We had a great time! Absolutely worth the drive, beautiful countryside. They have lots of animals and most of them are approachable and friendly when you don't chase them. 10/10 would recommend for any family to enjoy.
