This funky "zoo" is a complete surprise on Block Island - one would never expect to find camels, yaks, and other exotic animals on a New England island. Very friendly and free - always a plus.

Entry into the farm is free. You get what you pay for. There were a unique collection of animals, many running around free. Satisfy your curiosity. I'd stop there again.

We couldn't get over the fun of being at this farm where we could walk alongside the Alpacas and pet other animals in their enclosures. The animals were lovely, we had never seen a Zedonk before. Our teens would have stayed all day.

We took a walk over here not expecting much. What a great surprise! Alpacas were wandering freely, kangaroos, llamas, lemurs, goats, beautiful birds, a miniature horse, a giant rabbit and a tortoise, goats, and many other animals all behind fences low enough to pet them...More

This place is really fun for a quick stop. There's such a cool variety of animals. Who knew there was such a thing as a 4-horned goat?

Worth the visit, from huge tortoises to camels and a great sheep with star horns. As well as alpacas roaming free and a fiber store which sells goods made from their wool
