Time to make feathered friends and feel like you're in Disney’s Snow White. We have a few options for both warmer and colder seasons. Drive time to the third stop is 20 minutes.

This stop is the dealer’s choice! We’ve recommended another fabulous farm, a quick walk to historic ruins and a few tasty lunch options. Drive time to the fourth stop is 15 minutes.

Your fourth stop is a very special place. With so many rescued animals, you can get right in the pens for snuggles and selfies! Please note, this stop needs to be booked in advance. We provide detailed instructions on this in the confirmation email.

A lot of furry fun

I had an incredibly enjoyable time at Country Farms & Furry Friends with GuessWhere trips. Contrary to some previous reviews, I found the first stop to be delightful, featuring both adorable animals and a fantastic breakfast spot.

While the second and third stops were pleasant, they didn't quite steal the spotlight.

The suggested food options were excellent, but do keep in mind that they might add some extra time to your trip.

However, the last spot truly stole the show, and I'm already planning my return visit. This experience was a definite highlight!

Country Farms and Furry Friends Review

It’s so hard to share without sharing. All I can say is 10/10 recommend. This was the greatest outing ever. My 4 year old son and I had the best time.

I loved mostly every stop with the farm Animals. Feeding birds was the best. I had to skip 3rd spot to get to 4th Spot reservation for 2pm, but went back to spot 3 after. Love the people you meet too and coming across a classic car show at first stop. Next trip I am going to plan to go more earlier than suggested time. Also will return to some of the spots enjoyed the most to spend more time.
