Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm Riding Stables. You’re going to love our unique barnyard environment, nestled on 143 acres of a beautiful mountain property. Bring the family to meet, pet and feed our friendly animals, including goats, deer, camels, elk, reindeer, emu, zebra, exotic cattle, watusi, zonkeys, and so much more! You can even walk amongst our tame fallow deer. After the zoo, the little ones can enjoy a ride on one of our gentle ponies, led by Mom or Dad. Or, the whole family can take a relaxing horseback ride through our wooded Smoky Mountain home, led by our courteous and experienced guides. We hope to see you soon!

Small petting zoo that allowed us to walk threw and pet goats and even hold a baby. Not exactly sure that I will come back here due to the lack of stuff to do.

It cost $86 for our family of 5 to walk through an extremely small petting zoo and hold 1 baby goat that took way too long to get to for 30 minutes of disappointment. Would not ever go there again.

This place is always a nice break for the kids. Well kept and the animals are well maintained. Get away from the traffic and crowds. Come back every year we are here.

We visited this petting zoo on our recent trip and the kids loved it. It's reasonably priced in my opinion, because you can move at your own pace and spend as much time as you like. The cups of food go quite far so we...More

There is an area that you can go in and be with the goats, you are allowed to pick up the babies which were super cute. You can also walk in with the deer :).

Ok, you can look at my many other reviews of places and see I am nowhere near negative. Honestly I would give this a 2.5, but I won't go lower than what they deserve. First off I didn't think the animals looked well cared for....More

Can we do the petting zoo part in the morning, go out to eat lunch, and come back to do the horseback riding? I don't want to have to pay the admission fee twice... Thanks!
