Our Petting Zoo 
To You!

 

One of the most memorable times of a child's life is the first time they went to a zoo. Now you can bring that zoo to your home for a private party , school or company event.

The magic of any event is watching a child discover an animal they have only seen in books. High Lonesome petting zoo offers complete hands on experience to both children and adults.

We feature a wide variety of animals in our zoo. Children and adults are free to pet and experience all the different types of sheep, goats, llamas, chickens, ducks and rabbits.

Most of our Petting Zoo's will be there for 2 hours, minimum.  The cost doesn't include mileage. With gas prices as they are, we are forced to add this. If you would like us to stay longer, there is an added fee

Please note that these are live critters and just like humans, they have good days and bad days. We will do the best we can to provide you with the animals listed below, however, we will not force any of our critters to work when they are not feeling well. As a result, you may not get exactly the animals that are listed.  High Lonesome can bring the animals on rainy days, however we will not come out if it is lightening.

 

For 2 hours Minimum
