When Can I Visit?

  • Groups of 12+: Please contact us so that we can be sure we have adequate staffing.
  • Our priority is educational visits for school-aged children, so we thank you for understanding if drop-in visiting hours change/are reduced some days.
  • Check our facebook. Last-minute changes will be posted there first; there's a good chance the web site will miss a last-minute update.

Please note that our visiting hours may change seasonally as we adapt to the changing activities on the farm.

How Much Does It Cost to Visit?

Lucky for you, the farm is free to visit at this time!

What to Wear

Farm terrain is "au natural", plus it's Florida. There is occasional poop,  ants and other bugs. We encourage visitors to wear closed-toed shoes and sunscreen.

What to Bring

  • Water bottle: We encourage visitors to bring your own re-usable container since we have no water fountains or vending areas. 
  • Hand sanitizer: Some animals carry serious germs. We have a hand wash station and public restrooms. Still, it never hurts to  bring it. 
  • Camera/Phone: Ok, you probably don't need a reminder.

Can I Pet/Ride the Animals?

While most of our animals are happy to greet visitors and welcome pets,  we are different than a petting zoo in that our critters get to decide whether they are interested in interacting with human guests.  We do not offer animal rides.

A Note on Food Snacks

  • We know little ones might need an emergency snack. If you could, please try to bring it in a tupperware style container to minimize the chance that any animals accidentally eat any plastic or foil packaging. 
  • Please resist sneaking human food treats to the animals. We know folks are just being nice, but it's no fun for the critters to end up with upset tummies, diahhrea, etc. Plus, if they only associate people with food, then they will lose interest in approaching you for the fun of it. Lastly, we're trying to go organic wherever we can, more on that below.

Can I Bring Carrots, Apples, Etc. to Feed the Animals?

For their quality of life,  we want to maintain the animals at a healthy weight, which does mean limiting the amount of snacks they receive each day. There is a chance that your food donation may need to be put in the fridge for another day. We are aiming to become organic wherever possible, and the animal waste that becomes our compost partially relies on their diets' being organic. As we progress on our organic journey, we may not be able to accommodate outside food donations unless we can verify that they are organic.

Most Welcome Organic and Untreated Food Donations:

  • Wild muscadine grape leaves or Brazilian pepper branches (goats)
  • Dandelion greens, red leaf & dark leaf lettuces (almost everybody)
  • Apples, grapes, berries (animal "candy", so a handful is plenty)
  • Green leafy carrot tops, celery leaves (rabbits)
  • Hibiscus flowers and leaves  (tortoises)
  • Cilantro, flat-leaf parsley (rabbits, goats)
  • Oranges (Wade the cow)
  • Pumpkins, butternut squash, other orange-flesh squash (goats, tortoises, pig, cow)
  • Green peas (ducks)

Thank you, but NO: bread items, processed human foods, and please skip the iceburg lettuce (no nutritional value)
