    5 star review  Today was me and my fiancé’s first time visiting the farm, and we absolutely loved it! You can tell that the animals are well cared for, and the staff are so friendly! We spent 3 hours here, and we didn’t even realize because we were having such a great time. Not only that, but I got the opportunity to help feed a baby goat its bottle. The experience you will find here, is unlike any other. This farm was worth every penny. Go support this small business- you will not regret it! Can’t wait to visit again.
