What Others Have Loved About The Barnyard Zoo

Great place. Small, but that's often good when you have a young one. It took us about an hour and a half to visit all the animals and have a play in the playground. It is cash only and there is no people food there if you intend on eating lunch while visiting. There is food available to feed the animals though.

Had a great time here this afternoon with my niece and family 🩷 🐐 🐓 Lovely farm, friendly people, the animals look happy. Not a lot of shade for a blitzing hit day ☀️ but I’m not even deducting a star for that as we all had a great time! The pig 🐷 chilling out in the mud was such a cute sight. Would highly recommend 😁

We've been a couple times and it's a lovely barnyard petting zoo. The animals are well cared for and the playground is great.
