Kids (and moms and dads, too) love to visit our petting zoo! Our petting zoo is open year round during market hours.
Pet the sheep and cows, feed carrot tops to the rabbits, and watch our baby chicks play in their barn (please note, baby chicks are seasonal). We have pheasants, turkeys, goats, ponies, donkeys, and calves.
The petting zoo is free of charge to our market and greenhouse customers. If you would like to feed the animals, you may purchase animal crackers from our market and carrot tops for the bunnies (must purchase carrots). Please do not feed our animals outside food – they will get very sick.
The petting zoo is open for our customers during market hours:
Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm. Saturday, 8am-5:30pm.
We are closed on Sundays.
