Beautiful animals for the whole family to enjoy!
Our animals are located across the parking lot in the white fence area where you can pet and feed them through the fence. All our animals are all girls. There are three mini goats and four alpacas.
Our Alpaca’s are Rosie (Red Brown), Roselita (Grey & White), Rosetta (White), and Indie (Red Brown with white spot on face). Alpacas are charming and valuable members of the Camelid family. Alpacas are prized for their luxurious and costly fiber, which is harvested by shearing once a year. We will be selling our Alpaca fiber and dryer balls at the cashier area along with stuffed animals. The Alpaca gestation period is 11 months. The baby is called a Cria. Alpacas are a herd animal and are native to the Andes Mountains of South America where they are used for their fiber and their meat. Alpacas are very gentle, clean animals and make wonderful pets.
Our goats are Norwegian Dwarf mini goats. They all have names and are very friendly. Goats are hard to keep cause like kids they get into everything. Baby goats are called kids. People love goats. They are known to calm people. Some goats emit a high-pitched wale when something simply isn’t right. Each kid is very unique vocally, it’s one of the ways their mother can identify them when they’re born.
One of the great built-in survival mechanisms a goat has is its keen night vision, which is all thanks to its rectangular pupils. They can scout their surroundings from 320 to 340 degrees in one glance. Humans can only do 160 to 210 degrees. They are mountain animals and have stellar coordination that enables them to reach outrageous feats involving heights-they’ve even been known to climb trees. Wait till you see them in their playground area.
Just like cattle, goats eat plant-based food and need four stomachs to be able to break it down, they’re ruminants. Humans only have one stomach. Goats have been tamed by humans for ages-they’ve been herd animals for about 10,000 years, originating in Southwest Asia. A large group of goats is called a herd.
Be sure to take your photos of our animals in their pasture with their red barn. Then post them to your Facebook or whatever social media you like, it’s fun and beautiful.
Their barn door is always open, unless it reaches subzero temperatures. In this instance, they will be inside their heated barn to keep them nice and warm! All other times, you are welcome to feed, pet, and view the animals through the fence while the restaurant or carryout is open.
At our main restaurant in Romeoville, IL. They reside in the Red Barn at the end of the parking lot. Their door is normally open so they will be in the fenced-in pastures in front of the barn.
Yes! Petting and viewing the animals through the fence is always free.
There is feed we provide for the farm animals. You can buy it through dispensers in front of the fence for $0.25 or inside the restaurant when it is open, also for $0.25. Please only feed the animals the food we provide, as they will get sick if they are given any other food (including corn fritters!).
