Smoky Mountain Deer Farm & Exotic Petting Zoo reviews
Had an absolutely amazing time here! I want to give this place five stars just to add to the overwhelming positive reviews that it already has, and to let you know that as someone who has been around animals all my life and has cared for them that this place is well kept. The petting zoo was really nice, it wasn't very huge but that's because most of the land is taken up by the pastures that they release the animals into at the end of the day. I see some reviews saying that the animals are dirty and not well cared for, but they're animals, they're gonna be dirty. And from talking to the staff not only are they cared for, but loved. They have a lot of goats and apparently every single one of them has a name. We also went horse back riding at the stables and were greeted by a friendly gentleman named Tim who was kind and stopped to chat with us for a minute. We then were guided through beautiful scenery by Candice who was talkative and friendly the whole 45 minute ride! We also learned that all of their 33 horses are rescued (and the over 200 that they have had in the past), and on the trail we got to see some of the animals from the petting zoo in their pastures (which are huge). Overall it was a great experience, friendly staff, friendly animals, and as far as the pricing goes I didn't find it extremely overcharged. And to support this small business trying to rescue animals and keep them well cared for I think it is well worth it!
I absolutely loved this farm! I am from OH and visited TN in August. I found this place on Google when I was looking at things to do in the area. I am so glad I found it because it was the much fun! The prices aren't bad and there is so many animals to feed and pet. You can even hold the baby goats! It was awesome.
