Green Meadows Petting Farm

Green Meadows is a large petting "farm" in Kissimmee Florida

 

Is it a Florida must see??? 

 

probably not

 

However, as far as petting zoo's go, Green Meadows is the real deal.  

 

 The farm is nicely spread out under a great canopy of live oaks that help stave off the hot Florida sun. 

Here, one of the many peacocks hangs out in the tree overhead.

 

 

 

 

Upon arrival your small group is assigned a guide, whose knowledge and love for the animals

becomes obvious as you meander slowly from pen to pen

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At $22 a head, itís a bit pricey for whole family (only kids under two are free),

but if your purpose is to spend a couple hours with the kids befriending a bunch of barn yard animals

then you will get good value for your dollar at Green meadow.

 

 

The younger kids will love it

 

 

 

 

but take the teens to Universal

unless, of course,  they too like to commune with the animals.

 

 

 

 

 

The farm has an impressive collection.

including a zorse ( across between a horse and zebra)

 

 

 

 

 

turkeys

lamas

 

 

water buffalo

 

 

 

miniature ponies

 

 

pigs

 

 

 

 

 

and plenty of the aforementioned peacocks

 

 

 

 

 

many of the pens are hands are hands on up close and personal

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have been back a couple times to

  visit with some old friends

and make a few new ones along the way. 

 

You can find a buy two get one free coupon on their website

 

 

 

 

I enjoy many of the quirky garden decoration that are throughout the farm.
