Feeding goatsPetting Zoo

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. 

The petting zoo is open during market hours:
Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm. Saturday, 8am-5:30pm.
We are closed on Sundays.

Schools and groups: please contact us for pricing.
