The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one admission to Green Meadows Petting Farm in Kissimmee (up to a $22 value). Discounted rates are offered for teachers and senior citizens; admission is free for children aged 2 and younger.
Open 363 days a year, Green Meadows Petting Farm fosters barnyard awareness with a hands-on tour of more than 300 animals. A knowledgeable farm guru pilots groups through a vast menagerie of buffalo and sheep before reaching the dairy cows, where patrons can hone milking techniques and discuss cookie-dunking etiquette. Children can embark on a pony ride to survey grazing animals from atop a trusty steed, or lounge on the golden bales of a tractor-drawn hayride. Patrons who bring their lunches are free to graze at the farm’s ample picnic space or seek nourishment at the general store, which sells snacks, beverages, and voice-activated butter churns.
Over the course of 46 years, owners Bob and Coni Keyes have expanded Green Meadows Petting Farm to encompass several locations, with more than 500,000 clients each year. The rustic menagerie regularly plays host to visiting school groups, families, and runaway circus tigers that long to be hugged.

During the slower months of December through February, guests have an opportunity to receive tours with individualized attention.
