Petting Zoo & Animals at Lewis Farms
Feed the Animals in the Petting Zoo – They LOVE Visitors With Treats
You can purchase a cup of animal feed, and the animals know exactly what that cup looks like. As soon as they see you with it, they’ll come right up to the fence to get their treats. We fed goats, donkeys, camels, llamas, and deer.
My kiddos (ages 8 and 5) loved how eager the animals were to get treats, especially the goats. We also were able to feed birds in the aviary buy purchasing feed sticks at $1/each. The birds are not shy at all — a couple of them even landed on my husband’s head!
There is a nice variety of other animals to see on the farm as well. We watched a peacock spread his full, colorful tail feathers and saw bunnies hop around in a small rabbit village. There were also tortoises, lemus, and zebus.
We all loved the unique selection! Lewis Farms also does a fantastic job with handwashing stations. There’s no excuse for not washing your hands after touching the animals.
Activities at Lewis Farms
Save Lots of Time for the Farm Games
In addition to the animals, there are so many activities to entertain and exhaust your clan. There are giant jumping pillows for kids and adults (which this writer highly recommends – it feels like you’re flying!), pedal cars, mazes, races, lassoing (which this writer finds extremely difficult), and good old fashioned farm-themed playground equipment.
Rubber Duck Races
Picture it: a giant swimming pool filled with millions of dry corn kernels. I was worried the corn wouldn’t be comfortable, but I was wrong.
The weight of the kernels and the smoothness of the corn made me want to bury myself up to my neck and never leave. Reluctantly, I eventually got out to enjoy the rest of the farm… but this will remain my favorite.
Bump Along Barrel Train
Low Ropes Activity Course
Observation Bee Hive
Mulitple Play Areas
Here are some highlights from our trip – they’re the things we know your family will love, too.
There is also a section dedicated to what seems like farm-inspired carnival or midway games: skee ball, basketball, fast pitch, and a strongman strength tester.

Come Hungry and Take Advantage of the Homemade Eats
After the running, playing, animal-feeding, and corn-lounging, you’ll no doubt work up an appetite. Lewis Farms has delicious meals to quell those hunger pangs.
I recommend the grilled cheese made on their homemade cheese bread and the uniquely delicious deep fried asparagus. You can also purchase fudge, ice cream, donuts, kettle corn, or pies, among other tasty treats.
