5 Places for the Best Petting Zoo Georgia

Places for the best petting zoo Georgia.  We loved taking the kids to petting farms when they were smaller.  Playful lambs in the spring, cute piglets, goats and all sorts of chickens and geese the rest of the year!

So, let’s take a look at the Best Places for Petting Farms in Georgia.


Pettit Creek Farms

Pettit Creek Farms – “Nestled in the foothills of North Georgia, lies the home of the largest camel herd in Georgia. Along with camels and many of your common farm animals, our farm is home to many exotic animals such as giraffes, zebras, capybaras, lemurs, llamas and more from around the globe! (Psst…several of Santa’s reindeer make Pettit Creek their second home when not busy pulling Santa’s sleigh.)

Our working farm is open for tours daily by reservation only January -August. We also host two annual farm celebrations,  PumpkinFest mid-September through October, and A Country Christmas, which opens Thanksgiving at 6 PM and continues through December 30.

We also host events of all sizes throughout the year. Everyone is welcome – no group too small or too large! We offer open fields for games, picnic tables under the oaks, Petting Zoo, Inflatable bounces, and; most important of all, the Hayride Tour itself! We host Corporate Outings, Church Groups, & Class Reunions! Pettit Creek Farms offers plenty of “down home” country fun for your special gathering.”
