The Farm at Walnut Creek is Closed for the Season
We are closed for the winter season and look forward to seeing you next spring.
Where are you located?
Our physical address is 4147 County Road 114, Sugarcreek, Ohio 44681. It's sometimes confusing for our guests because we are actually just a few miles southeast of the village of Walnut Creek.
What are your rates to get in and what does it include?
General Admission includes the drive-thru, petting zoo, playgrounds, picnic areas, and farmhouse tours. Feed buckets can be purchased for an additional $3.00 for 64oz.
ADULTS - $15.00 per person
CHILDREN, ages 3 to 12 - $12.00
SENIORS, aged 60+ - $12.00
GROUPS, 15 or more - $11.00
General Admission + Wagon Ride Tours include a guided horse-drawn wagon ride tour of the animal park, plus touring the aviary, barns, and farmhouses. You'll enjoy our knowledgeable (and humorous) wagon drivers, plus have easy access to feed our friendly animals. One 64oz feed bucket for every 2 people included on the wagon ride.
ADULTS - $21.00 per person
CHILDREN, ages 3 to 12 - $16.00
SENIORS, aged 60+ - $16.00
GROUPS, 15 or more - $15.00
Additional feed may be purchased if you wish to do so.
Do you sell pre-sale tickets?
No. You must always buy your tickets at the door. Any person offering you (cheap) pre-sale tickets on Facebook or other social media is a scammer.
What are your hours and when do you close for the season?
April through the end of October – 8:30 am to 6 pm
November through the end of March – By appointment only. Please call for appointments.
Always closed on Sundays.
We reserve the right to close the animal park at any time due to weather, maintenance or other emergency. If you have doubts about whether we are open, please call us at 330-893-4200.
Do I need to make a reservation for a wagon ride?
Only if you have a group of 10 or more people. Wagon rides are always first come, first served.
Should I call ahead if I have a group?
Yes, for groups of 10 or more people, please call in advance.
When do the wagons leave?
During the summer, the first wagon will leave at 9am. Wagons leave approximately on the hour during the day. The last wagon departs at 4pm.
How long does the wagon ride last?
The route is 2.3 miles long. Wagon rides are 45 minutes long. We stop regularly for the animals to visit you for food.
How much time should I budget for my visit?
To see everything The Farm has to offer, we recommend at least 2 to 3 hours. You will experience the animal park plus the aviary, our Amish-style farmhouses and barns and the domestic animals in the various pastures around the buildings.
Do the wagons run in the rain?
If you have questions about whether the wagons will run, please call us at 330-893-4200.
What are your payment options?
Cash or check.
We do not accept credit or debit cards.
While there is no ATM at The Farm, you can access one at the Commercial and Savings Bank in the village of Walnut Creek.
Do you offer any discounts?
Triple AAA - 10% off (please be prepared to show your card)
Veterans/Military Discount - 10% off for the entire family
Are motorcoaches (or RV's) welcome?
Yes, we have plenty of room to park motorcoaches and large vehicles. However, motorcoaches and vans MUST drop off passengers in our prescribed areas. The driveways around the farmhouses and barns are built for pedestrian traffic and are very narrow.
Do you have golf carts to shuttle people around The Farm?
No. We recommend wearing good walking shoes for your visit.
Does The Farm offer meals?
No. We are often baking in one of our farmhouses and offer samples. Ask one of our staff to recommend one of the many fine restaurants in the Walnut Creek area.
Is The Farm handicap-accessible?
Yes and no. It is possible to enjoy the gravel walkways and driveways of The Farm with a wheelchair. You will have access to the barns, fountain area, aviary, covered bridge and lower floor of our farmhouse. There are no elevators in our buildings.
However, the wagons are NOT accessible by wheelchair. We can arrange for a special dropoff near our wagon loading area, but you will need to be able to navigate a few steps up into the wagon. Of course, the animal park can be enjoyed by driving through in your car as well.
Please call us at 330-893-4200 if you have concerns or questions.
Can I bring my dog or other pet?
Sorry, but no. We've found that dogs and other pets often become frightened here at The Farm. Strange animals, smells and surroundings can trigger an unexpected panic reaction and make them a danger to you, our other guests, our staff, and our animals. We have nothing against pets – this is for the safety of all.
Unfortunately, this includes service dogs and other service animals. We understand the law, but this is just common sense. No amount of training can prepare your service animal to meet a giraffe! Again, this is for the safety of all.
If you call ahead, we can arrange to keep your dog in a crate in one of our buildings while you tour the complex.
Is The Farm inspected?
We are licensed and inspected regularly by the USDA. All housing, enclosures, health treatment, handling methods and feeds are prescribed by government inspectors. We have many years of working with both domestic and exotic animals and are well-versed in their needs and requirements.
Does The Farm have any endangered species?
Yes. The Farm seeks to help the recovery of several endangered species such as the Grevy Zebra and Ring-tailed Lemur.
Do you have large cats or bears?
Is The Farm a public zoo?
No. We are privately funded and do not receive any sort of public funds.
