Our local community has been asking for more opportunities to visit the farm and so, with MUCH excitement, we bring you the ‘Pet, Play & Picnic’ Event which is especially popular for parents and grandparents of littles!  Unlike our other event for non-lodging guests, which is only available once a week, our ‘Pet, Play & Picnic’ is offered 5 times each week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday,  Friday, and Saturday from 11AM to 1:00PM.
As its name would suggest, this event offers a host of things to do while on the farm!  Upon arrival guests will be escorted to our Petting Zoo where they will have the opportunity to meet, greet, and feed a variety of animals that call Ocoee Riverside Farm their home.  Following your petting zoo experience you will have time to enjoy our playground and picnic areas here on the farm and are likely to see some of our other animals grazing and frolicking in the fields.   You will have the option to individually upgrade any ‘Pet, Play & Picnic’ reservation to a ‘Pony, Pet, Play & Picnic’ event below.  This is a “short notice” event and can be booked up until 12 hours prior!  We look forward to seeing you on the farm!!
