What a great way to spend some family time with all of the animals at the Sheriff’s Office Animal Farm on Stock Island. Come on out, bring your Mom, and visit with the huge variety of animals at the farm, including barnyard animals like Ghost the blind horse, Eeyore the donkey, Nikki the pony, Angus the cow, geese, ducks, chickens, goats and pigs; tropical animals including exotic birds, snakes, a pair of sloths, a kinkajou and a lemur; and other favorites, including Albert the African Spurred Tortoise, Bucky the Llama, Kramer the Emu, a family of Patagonian Cavies, lots of bunnies, ferrets, Cayman lizards, peacocks, and many more.

This month, May 13th will be the only day the farm is open to the public. In June, it will resume it’s normal schedule of second and fourth Sundays from 1 – 3 p.m.
