Spokane Valley Petting Farm Now Open in Greenacres, Washington At Mountain Valley View Farm

Thursday, May 17, 2012 @ 11:05 AM Karen Hood

As of May 15th, Spokane Valley has a petting farm just east of Sullivan Road and South from Saltese Road at Mountain Valley View Farm in Greenacres, Washington.

Petting zoos are an affordable, family-friendly way to spend an afternoon together in the fresh air and beauty of the Inland Northwest. It is not only fun, but can be educational too, as children can learn about the different animals and see how they are cared for and utilized on our farm.

 

Mountain Valley View Farm, Inc. is home to over 100 species of wonderful animals, including a large variety of birds that include more than 60 kinds of chicken and many fancy and exotic breeds, 15 types of goose, 23 breeds of duck, and 14 types of turkey as well as guineas, peacocks, pheasants, quail, and emus, adorable fainting and miniature silky goats, Nigerian pygmy goats, Nubian dairy goats; alpacas and llamas, beautiful Icelandic horses, 5 types of sheep, and much more. Our farm is also home to some rescue animals as well as a number of endangered breeds, and there is much to see and learn. This is a great experience for children ages 2 to 102!

We do ask that you respect the animals by treating them with care–please, no chasing or shouting. If you want to feed the animals, be cautious and pay attention: some of them will mistake your fingers for carrots or other food and may bite or peck. Please remember that we consider all of our animals to be part of the family. They are treated with love and are used to being around people, and will only bite if they feel threatened or think you are feeding them.

Come and see all of Mountain Valley View Farm’s baby animals! It’s Spring, the time of year for sweet, adorable babies that will warm your heart and entertain you with playful antics. See baby chicks from many of our exotic birds, sheep with baby lambs, goats with kids, Icelandic horses, and miniature fainting goats with their cuddly babies.
