Animals & Attractions

Springdale Farm has many attractions for people of all ages to enjoy! Attractions often change from one season to the next, so make sure you come back again to see what's new.

    Our current Attractions include:

  • Petting Zoo & Barnyard Animals PETTING ZOO CLOSED 7/19-7/21 DUE TO HEAT

    The Petting Zoo offers more opportunities for visitors to pet friendly barnyard animals. Goats and rabbits are typically in the Zoo but other animals are there on certain days, such as American Miniature Horses, lambs and piglets. Admission $1 per person.
  • Poultry Center

    The Poultry Center is home to a wide variety of birds and includes an incubation area where visitors can observe eggs being hatched. Learn about different breeds of chickens, ducks and turkeys and their importance in the poultry industry.
  • Duck Pond & Nature Trails

    When visitors take the path north of the farm, they pass a small apple orchard, Farmer Joe’s garden, and arrive at a picturesque duck pond featuring a handicapped-accessible fishing dock. If they continue on the path up the hill, they will reach Springdale’s 2.5 miles of woodland nature trails.
  • Robotic Milking Center

    The Dairy Barn is home to 60 cows and the region's first Robotic Milking System. Admission is $3 adults (ages 12-62), $2 for youth (ages 2-11) and seniors (63+).

    Kids love Springdale Farm’s playground, conveniently located next to the picnic pavilion. The pavilion is also a great place to hold a family or organization gathering, with room for up to 100 people under its roof.
