A note to our guests:
The Zoo at Jo-Don Farms seeks to provide unique, intimate, educational and above all, safe encounters between people and animals. It is in this spirit that we ask our guests to be respectful to all of our animal friends. Teasing or harassing the animals is not tolerated. Please be mindful of your hands when feeding and petting, pay close supervision to young children, and keep an open mind to the interesting lessons these incredible creatures will teach you.
