Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer...

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!

Seriously it puts other petting zoo's to shame. My family - Two grandparents, four parents and four kids ranging in ages of 1 to 4- discovered this place the day after Thanksgiving. The staff was so kind, the animals looked healthy and happy and there was so much to see! Looking forward to visiting again!

This place was a delightful place to walk around and see different animals, mainly of the horse/camel variety. The goats and deer are the only two pens you can enter and pet. The goats are super friendly and the deer will swarm you for food. They do have plenty of good to feed with and some people will leave bits... More

It was ok, just thought that there would have been more to do and more to see than just, feed approx. 10-15 different types of animals. It's not the best, but not the worst. The staff seemed nice.

So.Many.Deer! It was fun to visit with our toddlers and let them pet all of the animals. We have a horse, 2 goats, and 2 pigs at home but they still loved seeing all of the exotics. The pens could be a little larger for some of the animals but I'm not sure if they have larger enclosures somewhere else.... More

Had such a fun time petting and feeding the exotic animals! Our 9 month old got to go on a pony ride and that was the highlight! Quite the haul to get there but beautiful countryside to view:) Would do it again!

My wife, son,daughter, grandaughter,and myself had a great time at the zoo. Our 2 year old had the time of her life feeding all the animals at the zoo. We also did too, especially having a blast when the animals would eat out of her hands, she thought that was the best thing ever. Overall a great place for a... More

Whew it was a drive to get to this place however they had a decent assortment of animals that were all very eager to be fed! I thought the feed should have been included in the cost of the ticket that would be my only complaint.
