Looking for more animal experiences in Ohio? You’ll want to put The Farm at Walnut Creek on your to-do list for this Spring, Summer, or Fall. I know we plan to!
The Farm at Walnut Creek is located in Amish Country, in Sugarcreek, Ohio. You’ll find over 500 animals, including species from 6 continents. Some of the animals that call the farm home include giraffe, camels, zebras, and kangaroos, as well more common animals, including horses, llamas, buffaloes and deer.
The 2021 season opens on Saturday, April 3, 2021, with drive thru and wagon rides, and is open on Mondays to Saturdays, 8:30am to 6pm throughout the season.
You’ll get to see the animals up close, and even hand-feed them from your car or horse-drawn carriage. They also have a petting area where you’ll see other animals up close.
This is a fully working farm, so you may also see farm activities, including plowing, thrashing, canning, quilting and more, depending on the season when you visit. Past years have also allowed tours of the non-electric farm house and barns (tba 2021), playground, farm stand, and more. It’s a great experience for all ages.
Enjoy the 2.3 mile drive through the rolling hills of Holmes County in the comfort of your own car or on an hour-long horse drawn wagon
