In December of 2021 we welcomed Ed and Abu here to our farm and, to our knowledge, they are the first camels to ever reside in Polk County, Tennessee! Ed and Abu are single humped, dromedary camels, as opposed to their close relatives the bactrian camels which sport 2 humps. Camels are friendly and curious creatures and have a long history of being used domestically for transportation of people and goods. In many parts of the world it is not at all uncommon to see these majestic creatures either at work or grazing in their owners pastures however, for most people here in the United States, seeing a camel up close is a rare opportunity! Here on the farm we’re excited to provide you this opportunity! During your camel encounter you will have the chance to ride, pet, and interact with the camels all while learning interesting facts about these “ships of the desert”. You definitely want to bring your cameras out to this one!
