BARNYARD PETTING ZOO
The Barnyard Petting Zoo, established in 1981, is a fun, educational and true petting zoo family experience allowing up-close, hands-on farm animal activity..
Little did we know when we started our collection of baby barnyard animals that our passion would one day become our livelihood.
All of our barnyard babies are birthed on the farm & are hand & bottle raised. With so many newborns, bottle feeding is extremely time consuming & a monumental task but worth all the effort when the babies bond with us….trust us & being comfortable with humans….
This hands-on approach of feeding & training enables them to be on stage & screen doing TV & movie work. Appearing on David Letterman, Good Morning America, Rachel Ray, Wendy Williams, Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show with animal expert, Robert Irwin to name a few.
From preschools to colleges, daycares to nursing homes, backyard parties to mega events, family, company & corporate, fairs, festivals & community days, even wedding receptions….you name it & we’ve done it!
Our animals have been featured with Jack Hanna on Good Morning America, David Letterman and center stage at the Benedum Theatre to participate in operas, have starred on Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood, done church pageants, nativity scenes, training videos, and television commercials.
