Petting zoos are better than regular zoos since there’s no glass to separate you from the animals and make you question who is really watching who. What if we were the animals all along? with this Groupon.
Choose Between Three Options
- $11 for a Farmyard and Attractions experience for two (up to $20 value)
- $20 for a Farmyard and Attractions experience for four (up to $40 value)
- $10 for a $10 donation
The value of this Groupon may be put toward Farmyard and Attraction Day Passes, or individual attractions including a petting zoo, a miniature golf course, and a cow-shaped bouncy house. Visitors can spend time with horses, llamas, goats, and potbelly pigs, as well as miniature cattle, equine, and sheep. There are smaller animals in the pens and petting areas. Attraction availability varies by day.
Donations benefit Lambs Farm, a non-profit organization that serves people with developmental disabilities.
In 1961, Bob Terese and Corinne Owen opened a small pet shop in downtown Chicago. Part of their mission: to employ workers with developmental disabilities so they can lead productive and fulfilling lives. Lambs Farm has since relocated and expanded into a 70-acre campus, which has a variety of residential and vocational programs that continue to help those in need. Nearly 250 individuals take part in the services, including group homes and individual apartments, access to employment opportunities and a number of recreational services, such as camping and hobby clubs. In addition to the expansive Garden & Pet Center, the campus also has a farmyard, a bakery, and assorted shops that sell goods handcrafted by Lambs Farm residents.
