Fifth Day Farm

Fifth Day Farm is a family-friendly petting zoo in Valdosta, Georgia. This four-acre farm offers unique opportunities to interact with different animals. Visitors can participate in goat yoga, a yoga class in which goats are involved in some of the poses. Fifth Day Farm also hosts annual fall festivals and offers professional photoshoots with the animals. The main attraction, the petting zoo, is open to both large groups and individuals. Here, visitors can meet and learn about the animals while taking pictures or feeding them. Pigs, goats, cows, ponies, donkeys, chickens, llamas, alpacas, ducks, and a turkey roam the enclosed yard freely and will often walk up to visitors looking for attention. Here, everyone has a name including Cali the pony and Dudley the donkey! Baby pigs are kept in a small pen inside the petting zoo and visitors may ask an employee to let them hold one. Newborn bunnies are also kept in separate pens, and while they’re too young to be held by visitors, they’re adorable to view. There is a hand washing station at the exit and a portable toilet is available for public use.
