The Kids’ Farm at the National Zoo is an interactive area where kids and visitors of all ages can make a physical connection with domestic animals, learn how they are cared for, and how food is grown.
The Kids’ Farm is home to various farm animals—cows, donkeys, goats, alpacas, hogs, a chicken, koi fish, catfish, and rabbits. Several of the animals residing in the farm are rare breeds, including the San Clemente Island goats and Ossabaw Island hogs.
Earlier this year we faced the unfortunate news that, due to budget cuts, the Zoo would have to close the exhibit and move all of the animals to new homes. Thanks to our generous sponsor, State Farm Insurance, Kids’ Farm has a renewed sense of security and support through 2016.
