Obloy Family Ranch

This past Friday, we took our first trip to a local farm here on the East Coast. We love visiting new places! The farm was running a May special for $5 a person to visit their petting zoo, so we jumped on this opportunity!

The day started out with a couple pony rides ($5 a kid… but we splurged). At the front office, there is a store inside where you purchase your tickets, gifts, and food for the animals. We purchased a ticket for a hayride and petting zoo tour. Their May special was $5 a person.

Outside the office, there is a neat playground made of tires for the kids to use! They also have a restaurant with a full menu of food. There were plenty of chickens and an iguana for the kids to look at while we waited for the hayride that would take us back to the petting zoo area. Bonus… my kids each got to hold one of these cute baby chicks!!

We boarded the hayride pulled by a tractor, and a guide took us back to the petting zoo section of the farms. We also had bought some feed for the animals ($5-10), so that the kids could get the full experience.

The hayride took us back for a tour of the petting zoo. There were so many unique animals! We fed a camel…

We saw a kangaroo, a fox, baby zebra, minx, groundhogs, porcupines, and of course all the farm animals!

Here is my younger daughter holding a baby goat!! We also had the pleasure of being greeted by this huge Emu bird, who ate right out of our food bag!

They had goats, ducks, donkeys, and a peacock as well.

After the tour, which took about an hour, the hayride took us back to the main office area where we bought drinks and relaxed and pet some horses.

It was a great day at the farm! Here is the information about the place if you want to check it out!

The BEST farm to visit in Florida

Call me a little biased, but my favorite all time farm to visit in Florida is La Porte Farms in my hometown of Sebastian, FL.

This sweet farm is donation based and the owner has graciously opened her well-kept home and farm to the public.

Among the animals there you will find goats, horses, ponies, chickens, birds, a fish pond, tortoises, a monkey, and a zebra! Our favorites are feeding the goats and the zebra.

We also love the bird aviary where you can walk through and look at the birds and coy fish.

Pony rides are $5 and there is critter food available for $1.

You can spend 30 min or a few hours here. It’s beautifully well kept. The staff are amazing. Please visit this farm!!
