Take a break from the theme parks and experience Central Florida’s farm roots at Green Meadows Petting Farm. While the majority of Orlando attraction planning consists of days spent at the major theme parks that made Orlando, FL popular, your “to see” list should include a zoo. Better still would be a petting zoo. Green Meadows is the perfect place to take young children and is great for the “older” child to get away from the excitement of the crowded parks and relax with the animals.
This Orlando attraction houses over 300 different farm animals available for everyone to touch and see. It is an “educational and fun experience” for all whether you are a Florida resident, a tourist, child, or adult. It is fun for everyone and provides a relaxing atmosphere. Farm animals can also become a comedy show after a while.
Fun Things to do at Green Meadows Petting Farm
Green Meadows Petting Farm provides two-hour guided tours while teaching guests about turkeys, chickens, pigs, donkeys, ducks, geese and so many more animals. Even if you believe you know all there is to know about farm animals, this Orlando attraction is sure to teach you something.
Encouragement is given to guests to touch the animals. The main goal of the petting farm is to educate children, as well as adults, about farm animals. The owners believe that touching the animals will help them better accomplish the goal of learning about them. Relaxing under the shade trees covering the farm, while interacting with the animals, is the best way to escape the crowds.
Along with touching the animals every visitor to the farm has an opportunity to milk a cow, or try to at least. An educational experience if there ever was one. Many people do not realize what running a real farm actually entails. This atmosphere and hands on education helps people to respect farmers.
After the two-hour guided tour, visitors are able to take pony rides, hay rides or ride an express train. There is something for even the littlest visitor to be entertained for hours at this Orlando attraction. Adult children can relax off the beaten path while watching their children enjoy the animals; sometimes even laughing at their children’s initial reaction to some animals.
