Funny Farm FAQ
Access to Location - our zoos need to have easy access to the set up area. Access should allow the animal trailer to pull up close to unload the animals, the pens, and all other equipment used for your zoo. If your zoo will be in the backyard, please keep the driveway clear for trucks and trailers.
Will there be sawdust in my backyard? Absolutely not! The petting zoo will set up a moveable fence, giving the animals free access to your lawn which they will nibble and trim while your guests visit with the animals. The small animals - goats, rabbits, chickens - leave very small quantities of organic fertilizer behind. Lawn fertilizer left by the larger animals - the horse, the cow, or the donkey - will be quickly disposed of by the staff.
Is the petting zoo really noisy? It can be, especially when the donkeys bray. We suggest if you are concerned about neighbors complaining about the sound, invite them to join your party! We try to keep all our animals calm, and happy. The sounds your neighbors hear are far less than the volumes made by chainsaws or lawnmowers.
What does USDA inspected mean? It means that our animals are certified as healthy, and all required vaccinations are up to date. The quarters for the animals are inspected for cleanliness, and the animals themselves are tame. USDA inspection occurs regularly, so that you may be assured of a healthy, well cared for, and tame petting zoo for your party.
