Furry Friends

The animals at are farm are just like family.  They are not bought just for the petting zoo, but instead, each family member is an owner of members of the petting zoo.  We ask that you please don't feed our animals because they are already too loved as it is.  You can visit our animals during field trips and group tours during the week or on the weekends.  They sure do love to get attention!

The Burro Family: Adopted from out west, these sturdy little burros have found a home at Loblolly Acres.  They seem timid, but are quite kind and gentle; just a little shy.  They do like to sneak out of their fence and roam the Christmas tree fields.  Keep an eye out for them. For more pictures of them, check out the photo library.*On September 8, 2012, Baby Dori was born to the Burro family.  Visit her in the petting zoo.

Chickens: We have exotic chickens.  Learn about them on group tours and who lays the Easter Eggs.

Freedom:  HeeHaw HeeHaw.  Freedom is a Sicilian donkey.  We call Freedom our guard donkey because he protects all the animals on the farm from foxes.  He loves to have his big ears rubbed and will trot after you for attention.

Liberty is our Freedom look-a-like.  He is Freedom's baby and they are just the same.  The only way to tell them apart is that Liberty is a little bit taller.

Max: He is a show horse that likes to do his own thing.  He likes to hang out in the barn and his best friend is little Sammy.

Monty and Prickly Pete:  These two little hedgehogs joined us recently.  They can sometimes be quite prickly to the touch but are so much fun to watch (when they are awake).

Harold the Pig

Sox: Soxwell is bred and born on Loblolly Acres.  He is a sweet appaloosa who always welcomes happy visitors.

The goats: Tid Bit, Midnight, and Al:  The fun little goats of the farm.  They love to run around causing mischief and spend a lot of time with Mr. Pig.

Willow Millow: Sweet little Willow is the face of the Loblolly Acres petting farm.  You can follow her on Facebook to find out what is going on with the animals on the farm.  Willow likes to spend her time in human arms or sleeping under a blanket.  Be sure to say hi to her on the farm because she loves the attention.
