Our petting farm features a variety of miniature and small breed farm animals including miniature horses, miniature donkeys, sheep, goats, miniature pot-belly pigs, alpacas, a miniature cow, and chickens.
We love all our animals and they live here with us on our farm. That way we have daily contact with them and can keep them happy and healthy.
Originally from the Andes Mountains in South America, the three main countries of origin are Peru, Bolivia and Chile. Luckily Toby and Pheonix didn't have to travel that far! They were born right here in the U.S.
Miniature donkeys are not just a smaller version of full-size donkeys - they are their own breed and originated in the Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Star, Buster, and Diablo are three of the sweetest you will ever meet!
These are horses that were bred down in size from their larger cousins, although they have been around for so long that they are almost thought of as a separate breed. Cody really likes to play and enjoys getting his coat brushed.
We have Pygmy goats and mini Nubian goats which are both dairy breeds. We also have Pygora goats which are used for their fleece. Curry and Stewy are buddies and go everywhere together. The Pygora girls, Angelica and Zamora, also like to stick together.
The silky is a fun 'furry' like chicken from Asia. Sometimes their feathers get so fluffy that they are mistaken as puppies or rabbits.

Barbados sheep are a big horned breed that is usually difficult to get close to. However, often a few baby lambs can be seen funnin' around the farm.
The potbellied pig is a direct descendent of the old world wild pig family - the wild boar. If you scratch Edmunds belly, he will go into a trance and fall over on his side! He also likes to sit for treats.
Zebus are from India and naturally on the small side, although, Isabella is smaller than most. You will fall in love with her face.
