Winterpast Farm Reviews
My family went with some food we brought from home that was recommended by the owner. It is a cross between a farm and petting zoo. The animals were sweet and the staff were kind. Read the website bef... more »

I would highly recommend this farm for your event (and have already to 2 of my friends!). We rented a small, traveling petting zoo for an Easter party for my 2 kids and 10 of their friends. First of all, I called only three days before Easter and couldn’t believe that Farmer Mary could pull together what she did in such a short time on one of her busiest weekends - lots of families come to hold the “Easter Bunny” at her actual farm. I was expecting only 3 or 4 animals, but instead got one baby goat named Charlie Brown, the hedgehog named Violet, 3 guinea pigs, 2 ducklings and 2 bunnies. Henry, the white male bunny, was a DREAM to hold! All the animals were calm, healthy-looking, and exceptionally clean. Farmer Mary’s daughter, Elizabeth, travels with the zoo, and I hope you are lucky enough to get her while she’s home from college. She’s amazing!! She is kind and patient but also no-nonsense about the rules. I know some people think that’s a bit of a downer around kids, but I personally prefer that to the alternative of having a finger nipped. She keeps the children and the animals safe. She was so lovely we invited her to stay for lunch. Farmer Mary, I hope you stay in business for many years to come! This was such a memorable occasion for our family and guests - THANK YOU!!
I just over at the farm today. Farmer Mary was very nice to my family and my daughter. I can see how people may take her as rude but to me she’s just very direct and busy, I think people may be misinterpreting her as “rude”. As for the farm, it’s a petting zoo folks, set your expectations realistically and you will have a great time!
