Old McDonald’s Farm

More than 200 animals to see and touch at this petting zoo 

Buzzkill: There’s no farmer McDonald here. Sorry. This family farm belongs to the Robbins family, which, in addition to running the bouncy houses, mini-golf, pony rides and petting zoo, also operates a 6,000-acre working farm that includes a 1,400-cow dairy operation. The petting zoo has been running since 1986.
