Is the farm handicapped accessible?
Sort of! Depending on an individuals needs we will do all we can to help everyone enjoy our farm. Our farm is hilly which adds to its beauty but presents challenges. If the weather is dry then a car can be driven anywhere on the property. The barn and animals are fairly easy to access. We also have a trailer pulled by the tractor if the individual can sit on straw bales. The restroom has one step to enter and is not very large.
How safe are the animals?
All animals have the potential to cause harm however wallabies are herbivores and do not bite. Most of our wallabies are for viewing only since they are part of the Cincinnati Zoo's breeding program. However when we have young stock, part of their conditioning program is to have lots of contact with people. This is done by presenting them in a “pouch” which gives them security and they can then be carried around and petted. We also have a young female ambassador who is safe and really enjoys interacting with guests. All of our other animals are “hams” and really like people.
What about the potential for disease from the animals?
We do everything possible to keep our animals healthy. We have access to the zoo veternarians plus the expertise of our personal farm veternarian. We require all guests who plan on petting the animals to use waterless hand cleaner before and after handling the animals.
