You will have to make a donation to go in, for a family it is about 50$. You can pet the animals in the encounters, sheeps and lambs. The food in the cafe is great. We had the falafel sandwish, brownie and lattes. Yummy!

It's a nice place to bring little children but it would be a bit boring for older children. Not many animals.

Hardly any animals. You can't really pat them. Kids (5 and 3) got bored very quick. There are much better and more interactive animal farms around. Facilities are also meh.
