Where are we going today?

We LOVE zoos here at Family Days Out, but we love them even more when we know that the animals have been given a second chance at life. The Animal Farm Petting Zoo in New York State is 10 acres of very happy animals.

Most of the animal arrived through their rescue program, and now live in the country ready to make friends with families like yours! It's the perfect place for the whole family to interact up-close with the animals. 

The reserve is filled with shady trees, and colorful gardens, and open spaces to stroll and relax, which makes for a lovely day out!

Animal Farm Petting Zoo has creatures from all around the world. From monkeys, camels, llamas, wallabies, mini horses, piglets, parrots, tortoises, chickens, and much more. It's a great way for kids to really learn about these animals, and where they came from. It's also an amazing way for kids to learn about looking after animals, and how important it is that we care for them.

Don't forget to learn about the animals stories, as that will really give them a good sense of why it's important.

Of course, Animal Farm Petting Zoo is actually much MORE than a zoo! There is a fun puppet theatre, as well as playgrounds for those kids who have that bit of extra energy. There is even a Safari family train that you can enjoy, AND they offer a FREE pony ride!

You can't get much better than that! Now all you have to remember is to take the camera - you won't want to forget that!

    All I can say. Save your money! You pay to get in then again to feed the animals. $5.00 and $2.50 for little milk bottles. The stench of urine hits you as soon as you enter the goat area…It was filthy. Covered in poop with no one cleaning it up. I did not let my daughter in there. The “cute” turtle ride that was covered in the admission cost was without a person running the ride and was absolutely filthy. Save your money, the place is a dump. No wonder their is a stockade fence surrounding it so no one can look it. This is your first hint...Read More

The animals are from their Zoo Rescue Program that takes in abused, abandoned and unwanted animals and gives them shelter and care. The admission $ goes directly to support the animals.

There is a cute baby emu that was hatched from an egg by a pair of emus. And a male and female zebu and their sweet baby zebu born on the premises. [See the photos]. There are also bunnies, goats, deer, llamas, large tortoises, peacocks, a bobcat, a monkey, a huge camel and more.
It is easy to find, just off the LIE Exit 69 south. Don't forget to stop at one of the local farm stands before returning home.
I also highly recommend this for Summer Camp groups.
