Green Meadows Petting Zoo

Green Meadows is a cute little farm tucked away off poinciana blvd only 20 minutes from Walt Disney World. Green Meadows offers a variety of animals that you can be hands on with. There are pigs, goats,

chickens, mini horses, turkeys, bunnies, peacocks, ducks, sheep and much much more.

While at Green Meadows you can take a hay ride, horse ride (little kids) and a train ride.

During the seasons they have an Easter egg hunt in April (please try and bring your own basket for the event) also during the spring they have a butterfly garden, and butterlies are hatching almost daily!

During the fall, there is a haunted house with 13 rooms of fun in October as well as a FREE pumpkin from the pumpkin patch! During winter, the they have a red Christmas barn and each child ages 12 months to 12 years gets a toy from Santa's sack.

I first had a chance to go to Green Meadows Farm when i was in Kindergarten and i picked out the biggest pumpkin i could carry; it was a great day for me. Now that my children are in school i have been able to go with them as well. They have peacocks that roam around freely and fan out showing off their beautiful feathers, there are also farm dogs running around they're super friendly. Green Meadows is open year round, it covered in huge oak trees so shade is not an issue. When you pull into green meadows parking is free and you're greeted with a guide who takes you to all the animal areas where you learn a little about each animal, as well as pet and some you even feed : )

The children seem to have the most fun catching chickens, milking a cow and doing pony rides. Its a small town farm worth a trip if you love animals and want do something different then a theme park, its a great family activity that costs $23 each person ages 2 and up.
