What you'll do

Immerse yourself in the life of a full working animal ranch while learning about the animals that live there. When you arrive we will spend a few minutes talking about the ranch and the types of farm animals that live on the ranch. Since there are large animals that live on the ranch we will go over some of the safety rules and take time discussing any fears or apprehensions you may have. It is at this time that you will choose which animal you would like to trek with (if you haven't chosen already). You will choose from a donkey, llama, alpaca, mini-horse or goat.

We will then take a 15 minute walking tour around the barnyard where you will get visit with goats, sheep, llamas, alpacas, mini-pigs, lots of horses, chickens, and even a camel!

After the brief tour, we will stop in the barn for a brief 10 minute training session on how to handle the animal you will be trekking with. We will then head off with the animals through a small obstacle course, through grassy pastures and under mossy live oaks for a 45-50 minute hike (approximately 1 mile) around the farm. On the hike you will get to observe what the daily life of the animals on the ranch is like while learning about the history of ranching in Florida.

Don't worry, there are plenty of opportunities for amazing photos!
Other things to note
We do have a bathroom in the barn for public use.

No flip-flops, sandals, or other open toed shoes

No dog’s allowed. We have farm dogs that live on the farm and in order to protect the safety of both our dogs, your dogs and the animals that live on the ranch we do not allow outside dogs

My family and I operate Beautiful Creatures Animal Ranch, a 42-acre working animal ranch. Beautiful Creatures is the home to many rescued, rehabilitated and adopted farm animals and wildlife. Our animal ambassadors help teach children & adults about kindness to animals and all about how amazing animals are!

Our family’s philosophy is “conservation and protection through education.” If we can teach people about animals and they fall in love, then they will want to protect and advocate for animals as well.

My husband and I have been working with animals our entire life and my children have grown up living the farm life. We have worked with a large variety of animals ranging from tiny little sugar gliders and lizards to giant horses and camels along with everything in between.

First, the farm is beautiful with oak trees, fields of cattle, horses and many assorted animals. The trek was so much fun!! I walked with a very well behaved llama and her baby!! My husband walked with a very personable donkey you can't help but love!! The family is so informative and entertaining. I left with so much respect for the many different animals they have adopted/rescued, the care, the love they show to their animals. I would highly recommend!!

My walk with the llamas was one of the best and most memorable experiences of my entire lifetime! I have always loved mamas my whole life. To get to come close to three of them, including a little baby, was amazing and magical! We took them around the 1 mile track and talked about their farm and shared about our experiences. The hosts are friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this to everyone, especially people with children.. I was able to take many lovely pictures of the beautiful Countryside with rolling Hills and Oak and pine trees.

It was a lot of fun hanging out with different animals in a farm setting. The location is a beautiful farm with live oaks hung with Spanish moss. All the people we met were very nice and friendly. Just walking around the farm and getting to lead a donkey was relaxing and something different to do. I’d highly recommend it if you’re in the area.
