Here is a list of some of the animals you may see at the farm:
African Pygmy Goats
Pot Bellied Pigs
Finch (kept in an estuary)
And a few cats if you can spot them.
First thing every morning during the spring and summer months, you can be part of the 'Goat Run'. The goats are let out of their evening sleeping area and stampede through the farm to the goat pen. If you miss it in the morning you can catch it again at night when they are led back through the farm to their sleeping quarters. Don't forget to bring your video camera, you'll want to catch the younger goats frolic around like little toddlers in a huge playground, maybe that's why they're called kids.
You can watch a video of the Daily Goat Stampede here on their main website:
Don't forget to bring your camera!
Another attraction in this big beautiful park (30 acres) is the Children's Playground. During the summer there is a wonderful underground water fountain that periodically shoots up water for the kids to play in. So be prepared and bring extra clothing, because chances are your kids are going to want to jump in!
Speaking of water there is a new children's area that was rebuilt in 2007 and features this giant sized watering can:
