Free Petting Barn

Our Petting Barn Area

Our petting barn area is filled with different animals such as llamas, alpacas, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys, sheep and cows. The animals are always happy to see new faces and are even happier if they get a little food from their new friends! There is no charge to visit the petting or animals. Zoo food is available for purchase inside the market for $5 (comes in a reusable cup) and just $2 for a refill. We would love to see pictures of you with the animals, so be sure to tag us on Facebook or Instagram.
