Bring your family, group or class to Beyond the Barn's Petting Zoo and let them experience nature, get up close to farm animals and have fun while doing it.
Teachers - we have a special deal for field trips! (Psst...teachers get in for free and everyone gets a free bag of goat feed.)
Our Petting Zoo and Pumpkin Patch is perfect for students ages pre-K to 3rd grade. On their trip, we can take your students on a hayride, and then a tour of the farm and tell them all about our animals. (Or they can venture around on their own.) They can hike our story book trail with their teacher and read the "Spookly the Square Pumpkin" story on pages spaced throughout the trail. (Spookley has a great anti-bullying message!) Then they can have free play time where they can play on their own with all the many activities we offer - the combine slide, Farmer Bryan’s PlayPlace, the field corn box with slides and diggers, playground, sandbox, bounce pad, the train and more! Before they leave, they can eat their lunch or snack that they brought along under our pavilion.
Teachers and bus drivers get in free. Everyone on the field trip gets a free bag of goat feed with their admission. NOTE: You must have a group of at least 25 paying guests to reserve a field trip.)

Birthday parties can be reserved in our birthday area and are held during our open hours on weekends in the fall (Sept. 10 through Oct. 30) We simply reserve our birthday area for you, which is in a fenced-in area and includes several picnic tables and free-standing tables for your gifts and cake.
