Welcome to Big Joel’s Safari Petting Zoo and Educational Park!


-We will be open for the Labor Day, Monday 9/4 from 9:00-5:00pm

(This will be the last Monday we are open for the 2017 Season)
-Big Joel’s Spooky Safari begins September 28th and goes until the last day of our 2017 season on November 5th.

Big Joel’s Safari Petting Zoo and Educational Park is the “zoo made for you” and is the premier animal-based attraction in the area. Big Joel’s is a family-owned farm and attraction, that is open this season from March 26th until November 6th. We opened the doors to our private menagerie to the public for the first time in July, 2012. Since then thousands of visitors have come to Big Joel’s and they keep coming back for more. Big Joel and his family are continually improving and adding to their park every year (and sometimes during the year!).
Come and see all types of animals from mild to wild. You can touch and feed many of our animal residents, and view the rest up close. Some of the animals you’ll see include majestic bison, watusi cattle, zebu, aoudads, camels, zebras, llamas, african porcupines, ostriches, emus, parrots, reptiles, and a variety of deer, elk, and antelope as well as other farm animals. Big Joel’s Safari now cares for well over 60 different animal species, both big and small! The great thing about Big Joel’s Safari is that you never know what you’ll see or learn on your next visit as there are always new-born animals, new species, exhibits, and things to do. Besides visiting with the local animal residents at the park, you can relax on our picnic benches under the pavilion, enjoy the scenery, shop or grab a snack in our gift shop.
This is a family-oriented and educational experience you won’t soon forget. So come on over for a change of pace away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Come and see what thousands of visitors are talking about. This is not your typical petting zoo and It’s sure to be worth the trip, as we aim to make your experience a great one and the animals love the attention, too!

Hope to see you then, Big Joel and MiMi
