What is there to do?

The Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch is about more than just Ostriches, but of course, they play a huge part too!

If you love animals, then why not stop by at this Arizona working farm that has been owned and operated by the same family for three generations. Pretty cool!

Kids, have you ever fed an ostrich? Well, now is your change! You never know the friends you might make along the way!

But like we said, the Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch is SO much more than just those cute ostriches! Kids can have a chance to get up close to other adorable animals, from Peking Ducks, Miniature Sicilian Donkeys, Fallow Deer, and even Nigerian Dwarf Goats - who knew there was such a cute sounding animal!  The Fallow deer are exceptionally tame and will hand feed from children.

There are even really sweet rainbow lorikeets that are always a huge hit with the kids.

Make sure you stop in and feed them - it's an unforgettable experience for them! They can hand feed the lorikeets nectar in their 5,000 square feet tropical enclosure, and get goaty kisses from the Hole In The Wall. 

Kids - want to know something really fun? On weekends and holidays they have the VERY popular Picacho Peak Monster Truck Tours! Vroom Vroom!

Stop in and feed the critters for an unforgettable experience. Something for everyone - ostrich, deer, miniature Sicilian donkeys and Boer goats plus the Monster Truck Tours!

With outdoor activities and amusement parks too, it's no wonder that Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch is an animal-tastic adventure in Arizona!

Where is it at?


The ranch is conveniently located between Phoenix and Tucson on Interstate 10 at Picacho Peak. Simply take exit #219 Picacho Peak Road and take the SE frontage road 1 mile. It dead ends into the ranch and there are signs.

Teachers corner


They are great for field trips! The kids learn about different animals with a hands on approach. The truck tours are very educational about ostrich, the desert, wildlife, snakes, and lots of other things.

Can I get one of those?


Ostrich products such as egg shells, eating eggs, ostrich oil, feather dusters, and souvenirs. Pretty cool!

Need a little extra help?


Everything is wheelchair accessible but there are no handicap bathrooms.
