I visit this ranch periodically and I was pleasantly surprised with their new building housing a gift shop, a fun shooting gallery, and a Stingray Touch pool! The petting and feeding exhibits are so much fun and well worth the price. You can choose different packages depending on how much you want to do. They have monster truck rides on... More

We love all the animals, but especially the sweet-tempered donkeys. If you stand there for a moment without feeding them, some of them will gently nudge you with their heads. The ducks are a little too frantic and the lorikeets freak me out (those little talons as they sit on your arm!) but I could feed the donkeys all day.... More

Probably the most fun and interesting roadside attraction. The staff is outstanding and the exhibits are completely interactive. Your family will remember this stop forever, from little kids to senior citizens, the crowd was full of laughter and true enjoyment. I would definitely recommend this as a must see. They added many new exhibits on Nov 22, 2016, so time... More

$7 for ages 6 and up and it includes a cup of feed and nector. Also comes with a coin to get duck feed from machine on property. You use the feed provided to feed donkeys, goats, ostriches and deer. The best part is feeding the birds. As soon as you walk in the enclosure, birds flock right to you... More

You have to pay $7 each to get in, and that includes a BIG cup of animal food. You're not allowed to share one cup - it's $7 each. Totally worth it! We laughed so hard here! Definitely try feeding the Ostriches directly out of your hand - it's so funny, and doesn't hurt! There are the cutest deer, goats,... More

Upon first glance, this looked like the worst sort of tourist trap. It's not a "fancy" place, but the price is very reasonable and the animals are all well taken care of. Their enclosures are clean and there's plenty of fresh water available. We had so much fun here. Wear a hat, as there is not much shade. The young... More

Thus family run ranch was a wonderful little stop. For $7.00 you get several types of food to feed the array of animals and birds. It was fun and got some great pictures!

I haven't been to this place in over 5 years. Well, I am glad I went back. This is a fun quirky place with enough of an experience for the whole family to make it worth it. It is one of those places that you think, well it must not be good, it is along the side of the Freeway.... More

While visiting Arizona, Relatives took us to this attraction. We viewed the animals and took a ride in the monster truck. I was unsure if this was something that would be interesting. I really enjoyed my time there. Going into the large Lorikeet cage was entertaining and interesting. All of us enjoyed our visit. The tour guide on the truck... More
