 So much fun, even the barn has to smile at Erickson's Petting Zoo!

So much fun, even the barn has to smile at Erickson's Petting Zoo!

Do you miss the opportunity to go to Grandpa's and Grandma's farm? The next best place is Erickson's Petting Zoo of rural Osakis, Minnesota.

This 98-year-old farmstead used to be home to milk cows. Third generation farmers Dave and Pam Erickson, along with their family, have converted the big red barn into a home for a wide variety of farm animals and birds.

Animals include pygmy goats and their kids, sheep, miniature horses,  Sara the llama,  potbelly pigs, rabbits, and cats.  Birds include many varieties and colors of chickens, ducks, geese, pheasants, peacocks, pigeons, and doves.

School visitors feed

Animals like to be fed, (we have corn available for a small fee). Please remember that animals have teeth, so you'll need to be careful with little fingers. When you are finished petting the animals, we have anti-bacterial hand sanitizer to wash your hands with.

In addition to the barn, we have a goat treehouse, a pony ring, a playground and sand pile, an orange mesh maze, a party shed, outdoor animal viewing areas - and more - awaiting you and your family.   We continually strive to improve our farm for our visitors' comfort and enjoyment.   Come visit us, to see what's new!

We are a USDA licensed, inspected and insured farm.  Many families, daycare centers, school groups and youth organizations have come to see us.  Make plans now to visit Erickson's Petting Zoo.  We keep our rates reasonable, so you can come back often.
