Farm Animals

The barnyard exhibit can be found by following the path spurring off the Animal Trail at the Beaver exhibit, crossing the road to the Farm Animal arbor, and walking the wooded path to the farm.


Come explore a 19th century style working farm and see goats, pigs, cows, a mule, donkey and lots of chickens. Also featured at the farm is a blacksmith shop, cane syrup mill and cooking areas, country store, chicken coop, tenant house, and a smoke house.
