  • Traditional Farm Animals at Dutch Village's Petting Zoo

    Farming and animals are a part of our Dutch heritage. At Dutch Village's de Kinderboerderij, we allow you to spend some personal time with some of your favorite farm animals. The zoo has many activities for you to try.

    Dutch Village Goat Walking

    Take a Goat For a Walk

    Our goats love to move around the Village and you or your children can take one for a short walk (or be walked by one).

    Pet a Bunny

    Who doesn't love a soft, furry bunny? At Dutch Village, you can spend some time with one of our many rabbits.

    Feed the Goats

    Throughout the day, you can help us feed our famous goats to keep them from eating the tulips!

    Please know that we operate our petting zoo with respect to the health and care of our animals. There are no additional charges for the activities in the petting zoo unless you choose to feed an animal. Animals may not always be available for walking or feeding based on their needs.
