About
Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm Riding Stables. You’re going to love our unique barnyard environment, nestled on 143 acres of a beautiful mountain property. Bring the family to meet, pet and feed our friendly animals, including goats, deer, camels, elk, reindeer, emu, zebra, exotic cattle, watusi, zonkeys, and so much more! You can even walk amongst our tame fallow deer. After the zoo, the little ones can enjoy a ride on one of our gentle ponies, led by Mom or Dad. Or, the whole family can take a relaxing horseback ride through our wooded Smoky Mountain home, led by our courteous and experienced guides. We hope to see you soon!

I went on the one hour horse back riding tour and it was excellent! Jesse was the guide and he was awesome! He even took pictures while we were headed back to the stable! Be sure to request him! I had never ridden a horse before, but because of Jesse’s instructions I was very comfortable on X-Man! If you have a chance to go here, do it!

What a wonderful time. The grandkids, Emma 9, and Benjamin 6 just loved the whole experience. Emma's favorite was the Reindeer. Ban's favorite (are you sitting down? LOL) was the Pot-Bellied Pig for some odd reason. Camels, exotic cows from foreign lands, Goats galore, and Ben chose the "pig". It was hilarious.

The kids were allowed in the Goat pen and were encouraged to pick up the baby goats. This exercise was hilarious by itself. The kids were inquisitive, engaged, and above all, well-behaved. For their good behavior, they also got to ride the ponies after the petting portion.

Our family, including a 10yo and 13yo, did horseback riding here. We had a great time! Horses were very gentle. An easy ride for first-timers, and their rates were great! They do book up a few days in advance, so make reservations ahead of time. The views along the trail are beautiful! We would definitely do this again!

We had a good experience. Our kids enjoyed feeding all the animals. We were debating between this zoo and Parrot Mountain for today. The zoo was a little less expensive, and we thought the variety of animals would keep the kids more engage. It’s by no means a fancy place. You can feed almost all of the animals by hand though, which makes it a bit unique. I think it’s worthwhile for a couple hours of fun with small kids.

We took our family here over the summer and had a great time! The kids LOVED the goats. It was really awesome that they allow you to pet and pick up the baby goats. My younger kids (ages 2 & 5) would have stayed in the goat exhibit for an hour if I'd have let them! I took the older two (ages 9 & 11) on a horse back ride. The path had many shady places, which was much appreciated given the heat. Our tour guide, JESSE WAS AMAZING!! He can talk to anyone about any topic. He made the trip so interesting and informative. He's the kind of person you'd want to sit around the campfire at night and listen to his stories. We couldn't have been more impressed with him! Before we left, we took the younger 2 on the pony ride, and they really enjoyed that!
