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 go back this year!
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 2022 season opens on Friday, April 1, 2022, with drive thru and wagon rides, and is open on Mondays to Saturdays, 8:30am to 6pm throughout the season.
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. The wagon ride will get you up close and personal with the animals as you hand feed these gentle giants (except the Zebras – they can bite!).
There is a center seat in the wagons if you don’t want the animals to be so close.
Driving through with your car will also allow you some distance from the animals if you choose to keep your windows up. Though if you put your windows down and have food, the animals will gladly put their heads in your window!
They also have a petting area where you’ll see other farm 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.
Guests can tour the non-electric farm house and barns, enjoy the playground, farm stand, and more. It’s a great experience for all ages.
