5 Places for the Best Petting Zoo New Jersey

Places for the best petting zoo New Jersey.  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 NJ.


Abma’s Farm Market, Greenhouse & Petting Zoo

700 Lawlins Rd, Wyckoff, NJ 07481

Come on down to the farm and visit our Barnyard Petting Zoo at Abma’s Farm! “Visit our goats, sheep, alpaca, donkeys, ponies, bunnies, pigs, and more! Check out one of a kind features like our goat walk, duck pond, and ‘Bunnyville’.

The Barnyard is a fun and educational experience for the whole family to enjoy. All ages are welcome!  Open all year round.

Our goats, sheep, cows, and alpaca love snacking on animal crackers. Our bunnies love snacking on carrot tops. Please only feed them the tops; carrots themselves contain too much sugar for bunnies.

If you would like to feed the animals, you may purchase animal crackers and carrot tops (must purchase whole carrots) from our market.  We also have an Abma’s Farm feed bucket for purchase at the Barnyard. Bring your bucket back every time you visit for a refill!”
