Petting zoos make it possible for people to see how animals interact with their environments and for animals to see how people interact with their weird, hairless babies. Witness the wonders of nature with this Groupon.

Pastorino Farms partners with Friendly Pony Parties to offer mobile pony parties and petting zoos that come right to your house. Both the one-hour and three-hour shindigs include a menagerie of chickens, ducks, bunnies, and goats; the three-hour party also includes one handled pony.
During three-hour summer camp sessions, kids of all experience levels are introduced to ponies while learning important equine skills such as grooming, feeding, and learning to steer and trot on the ponies. Campers also get to interact with a number of other baby animals on the farm, including black and white piglets and baby sheep and ducks, and will participate in a related art project each day. Camp dates run Monday-Friday and include a dress-up parade and slide show at the end of each week. Campers should arrive with a hat, water bottle, sun block, closed toed shoes, long pants, and a lunch.
More than 50 years ago, Italian-born Enrico Pastorino and his wife, Lorraine, established Pastorino Farms in the Half Moon Bay region. The farm first operated as a wholesale flower nursery, but it later expanded to include a seasonal pumpkin patch, petting zoo, and gift barn. Today, Enrico and Lorraine’s son Hank—along with the third generation of Pastorinos—maintains the family farm, which still sells plants and flowers year-round. Each October, the farm transforms into a harvest wonderland, replete with a pumpkin patch, hayrides, face painting, and scarecrows modeling the season’s hottest overalls.
