Pet Goats, Miniature Horses, & More in Lancaster County
You can’t visit the farmlands of Lancaster County, PA without seeing many farm animals. There are many dairy farms here, so you’ll see lots of cows on your travels. And with all the Amish farms, you’ll certainly see some mules in the fields and horses pulling Amish buggies on our roads.
But there are also a number of places in and around town where people – and especially young children – can come to pet farm animals. Especially for urban kids, the idea of petting goats or horses or miniature horses or other ‘wild’ animals can be pretty exciting.
Here are a few local places where you can stop to do just that. Some have pet food available so you can feed them. (Bring along some quarters.)
You’ll also find plenty of farm animals at our Community Fairs throughout late Summer & Fall.
And if you sleep over at a local Farm Bed & Breakfast, chances are they’ll have some farm animals you can meet and eggs you can gather.
