PLEASE NOTE: We have experienced some extensive storm damage so GRANDMA'S FARM & ZOO is in the process of rebuilding pens and buildings for the zoo animals that will meet USDA requirements before we can re-open the zoo. We hope to be able to open the farm part of our operation yet this spring/summer. We will have produce for sale, fresh farm eggs for sale, we will be offering pony rides and horse rides and you can see and enjoy our herd of miniature donkeys and miniature horses with their babies. Please be patient with us as we try to get the zoo open again for your pleasure.
Grandma's Farm & Zoo is located at 28443 Old Highway 79, Hot Springs, South Dakota. We are 7 miles South of the Junction of Highway 79, 385 and 18, also known as Maverick Junction. Watch for our signs at Mile Marker 52.

Grandma's Farm & Zoo offers locally grown, naturally produced, freshly picked fruits, vegetables and herbs from our gardens. We will be "organic certified" soon. See a listing below of what we have to offer. You can also order from us through the SD Local Food Co-op website at www.sdlocalfood.org.
Grandma’s Farm & Zoo is also a unique animal facility.
We have many domestic and zoo animals that we enjoy sharing with others in addition to our wonderful herd of registered Miniature Horses and Miniature Donkeys.
In addition to the educational zoo animal display, we have pony and horse rides and an amusement ride for smaller kids plus games designed for kids. We also are completing our new maze for little kids. Visit our Exotic Animals page for more information on the types of animals that we have.
For even more fun, we offer a PUMPKIN PATCH beginning on October 1 of each year through the end of October. Join us for various other special events throughout the year and for an educational and fun look at our animal facilities and enjoy looking at many zoo type animals up close. Some you can even touch or hold. See and touch the baby animals in the NURSERY. We offer special educational programs for school classes.
We also sell fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs from our gardens. Many of our items are organically grown and all of them are grown all naturally, without the use of pesticides, insecticides, fungicides or any chemicals. Enjoy the taste of home-grown, freshly picked, "good for you", fresh food. You can see how we grow all of our products and learn about various foods and how to prepare them. We offer free recipes for many of our products. We offer some hard to find varieties that we are sure you will be pleased with. Why eat food that's several weeks old that has been preserved and shipped into your grocery store, when you can have some right from the field!!! We have the best tasting sweet corn you have ever eaten. Try a free sample. We do offer some local delivery in the Hot Springs area. Remember, there is NO ADMISSION charge to see or purchase from our farm market, gift shop or snack bar; to ride ponies or horses, ride the amusement ride or play in the maze. You can even join our local buying group to save even more on your food. Ask us about our programs. Visit www.sdlocalfoods.org for more information.
