About Duke Petting Farm



Our animals are very friendly and love to be fed and touched. Learn about chickens, hens, rabbits, goats, donkeys, alpacas and more. Imagine hands-on learning with our animals as your teachers. Children are able to ride a pony and hand lead some of the other animals.  Don't forget your camera because our critters love getting their picture taken. 



Our farm has a main playground for smaller children as well as a mid size animal play area where boys can be boys! They can run and jump on the hills and chase each other around our pond. Play in the log cabins and chase a duck. 



Our cabin is open to the public and also used as a theme for holiday parties, You may see Santa on the porch or the Easter bunny hiding eggs. Great for family pictures and holiday get togethers. Bring the kids and have lunch under the pavilion. Read a book by the water or hold a bunny- it is up to you!

Tired of the same old humdrum reunion? Is the family reunion dropping off in attendance? Plan something new and exciting. They’ll be back year after year! Looking for somewhere unique to hold your class reunion where the classmates’ entire families can attend? Duke Farm is just the place.



What better way to discuss God’s natural influence in our lives than on a farm? Want it at the church? We can bring the farm to you!
With today’s deterioration of the family it is refreshing to have a clean, wholesome place the whole family can visit that is void of electronics, gadgets and fancy do-dads as a distraction. A farm visit is a place the church family can spend FUN, QUALITY time together. Ask us about our live Nativity TO CELEBRATE THE REAL MEANING OF CHRISTMAS!
