I took my nieces (4 and 2) to farm ventures and I have honestly never seen them so happy as they where meeting all the animals. Both of them thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of them especially the bunnies and a beautiful black pony who I believe the girl said was called twilight such a good name for her.
Farm ventures run an amazing establishment all the animals are so well trained and well cared for my 4 year old niece said she wants a place just like farm ventures when she grows up. She is also now begging her parents for riding lessons after her go on twilight.
Thank you to the amazingly helpful and knowledgable staff for an informative tour and a great day out for all the family I enjoyed it as much as the girls did we will definitely be back. I would honestly recommend this to anyone wanting something to do for all the family if you are animal lovers.
We loved it so much we went 3 days in a row on our family vacation!
Bette-lynn our delightful and welcoming host taught us so many interesting facts about each of the animals, and watching her engage with each of them is a thing of beauty.
The trail rides were so much fun, singing and chatting and enjoying the gorgeous scenery. We felt safe and confident being first time riders.
Thank you for the memories we will cherish for a lifetime! xo
I brought my partner here as a surprise gift and to celebrate our 4th anniversary together. He loves animals so I knew that he would love this place. I was right! He was over the moon with all the animals that sniffed him, head-butted him and clamoured for his attention.
He said that this was hands down one of the best experiences in his life. A place like this is not just for kids... Adults like us can have a blast too! If you have an open heart, and especially if you don't, this farm is a treat and healing for the soul. The animals are treated well and with complete and utter love and devotion... Don't miss this place if you're in the area. I promise you won't regret it.
I know I don't. I never will, because this is the last trip my partner and I took together. Exactly a a month after our visit, my partner, my love, passed away in our home. I will be eternally grateful for the wonderful memories you have gifted me. I will remember his happiness here for the rest of my life...so again - thank you from the aching cavern of my heart.
