This zoo is very well maintained. The animals are well cared for and happy. The people who run the zoo are extremely nice and helpful. Make this a priority trip. The animals come very close, so be aware they may rub your car.

Took our 3 year old Granddaughter today and had a blast! She enjoyed feeding all the animals. The Zebra sticking it's head in the car right in her face scared her a little but she got past it and enjoyed the rest of the trip....More

Had a blast. Kids loved it. Adults loved it. Take an SUV or Jeep, something with a lift gate or open seating to get easy access to see and feed the animals. Beware...the bands of goats that will ambush you wanting food. Trust me, you...More

What a charming little ranch! We took our own car, a Prius, through the gravel paths, feeding elk, deer, goats, zebra, yak, and even bison. I recommend feeding with the palm of your hand, because if you show the white bucket most will dip in...More

Yes, it is a bit pricey (20/adult), but the memories will be with us every time we talk about out Tennessee road trip! I don't think a super-wide auto or a large truck would do well on the hilly, gravelly, narrow track (had a couple...More

We chose to drive our own vehicle through. We did have one ram get feisty and put his front legs up on the door. We had 4 people in our vehicle and it was $80. The interaction with the animals was great, but they were...More

I believe adult tickets were $17.00. Senior was $16.00. A large bucket of food was $3.00. Not sure about children. Do remember cash or checks only. It was so much fun! ENJOY!
