Animals

Watch your child’s eyes light up when they come to visit the Smolak Farm’s animal/playground area! Llamas, alpacas, pigs, fallow deer, peafowl, goats, sheep, geese, ducks, chickens and so much more!  A great way to enjoy the warmer weather!

Stop by the farm stand or animal area and get some grain for the animals…giving them a treat is one way to give your children the all around farm experience.  We kindly ask that you not feed the animals food from home.  We watch their diet carefully to keep them healthy and active.

Please excuse our guinea hens, ducks and Buff Geese as they roam free about the farm.  Do not be afraid if they are outside of cages or in the street – they can take care of themselves! The guinea hens are great at keeping insects under control around the farm.

PLEASE NOTE:  We have upcoming Animal Health and Wellness checks coming up and will have to close the animal area for a few hours.   The Animal Area will be closed on Friday May 6 from approximately 10:30 until 3:00.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you in advance for your cooperation.  We want our animals to continue to be healthy and happy!

Our alpacas and llama have had their spring haircuts.  Come see for yourself how great they look!  Our sheep are anxiously awaiting their hair cuts as well!

We invite you to email Laura Ingalls, our Animal Care Manager, with any questions you may have regarding our animals.  Her email address is animals@smolakfarms.com.  Laura spends most of her time in the animal area but will respond when she has a moment away from the gang.  You are also free to visit our animal area and ask her questions in person anytime.
