One of the best parts of visiting this attraction is seeing all the variety of animals. Most of them are exotic, so it may be the only chance you’ll have to see them in person! Some of the animals are pretty common, but it’s cool to see them too! Some of the exotic animals you’ll get to see include camels, emus, kangaroos, and Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs.

2. Pet the Animals

You’ll be able to pet and interact with a ton of beautiful creatures when you visit Smoky Mountain Deer Farm. You’ll be able to purchase feed to give the animals. Goats and deer can eat out of your hand, and you can get mini donkeys to eat out of your hand. It’s really neat to have animals eat out of your hand and being able to touch these creatures up close. It’s a great way for kids to learn more about these animals.

3. Go Horseback Riding

Children ages 5 and up are able to ride their own horse, but if they don’t want to, as long as you can sit comfortably and don’t exceed the weight limit, you can ride together. You’ll get to follow a guide on a horse and ride through the beautiful woods in the Smoky Mountains.

4. Pony Rides for Small Kids

If your child wants to ride a horse but isn’t old enough for the regular horseback riding, they can go on a pony ride! They want everyone to be able to have fun riding, which is why they offer pony rides. Parents or guardians lead the ponies through a gated trail so your child is more comfortable. If your child doesn’t want to ride after you pay, they will refund your ticket!

5. It’s Affordable
