Whether you have toddlers or teenagers in your family, everyone will enjoy this facility that is nestled in a 140-acre foothill! Here are the top 4 reasons why families love visiting the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm:

1. Unique Petting Zoo

You can hug a baby goat, hangout with a kangaroo, or even pet a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig! You can also get up close and personal with a Rocky Mountain elk, a zebra, and meet some of the farm’s incredible horses! Of course, one of the highlights is having a deer eat food right out of your hand!

2. Fun Pony Rides

Your children will love the fun pony rides at the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm! There’s nothing quite like an old-fashioned pony ride to put a smile on your child’s face! You can lead the farm’s gentle ponies on a safe and shaded track while your child simply holds onto the saddle horn. The only restrictions are children must weigh less than 100 lbs and be under 56 inches tall to ride the ponies. If your child won’t get on the pony after you have purchased your ticket, there is no need to worry because the pony ride tickets are completely refundable!

3. Family Friendly Riding Stables

If you have kids who are at least 5 years old, they are encouraged to ride a horse on their own. Kids under 5 can still double up with you as long as they fit comfortably in the saddle and both riders do not exceed the weight limit of 250 lbs. The staff at the Deer Farm includes professional riders that will make you feel confident during your ride and keep you entertained while on the trail. All of the horses receive excellent care and are in great condition, so you and your family can enjoy a fabulous experience! ASTM certified riding helmets are available upon request for both pony rides and trail rides.

4. Affordable Prices

Another reason why families love the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm is because the prices are so affordable! The petting zoo, pony rides, and riding stables are priced individually so you can participate in one activity or do them all!
