Our animals are our pets and we ask that you treat them with the same respect you would give a family pet. Remember they are animals and they may snap back at bad behavior; so treat them nice. We ask that you stay out of their pens unless invited to enter by a farm hand.
Lulu, our donkey, may even give a little nip if she thinks she should get more attention.
Our barnyard birds are allowed to run free on the farm. Please do not chase them.
The rabbits in Bunnyville are cute and cuddly, but they can scratch.
Gideon Goat and his friends have been known to step on toes! It hurts!
Our animals are on a carefully regulated diet. Coin operated dispensers are available for your purchase of appropriate food. Please do not give the animals any other food.
Barnyards by nature are not germ free areas. While in the barnyard, please use the following precautions:
- Do not allow children to place their hands or other objects in their mouth
- Do not eat while in the barnyard
- Use soap and water to wash hands before leaving the barnyard
