Each morning, the Children’s Farm animals are brought out to pasture, weather permitting, and return to the barn mid-afternoon. Guests may purchase feed for the animals from 10am-3:30 pm. Designated feed machines accept quarters only.

Animals at the Children’s Farm

Unwanted Pets and Rescues

We do not accept wild or domestic animal donations. All wildlife animals at Maymont have come to us through licensed rehabilitators and agencies. These animals have been orphaned or sustained permanent injuries that prevent them from surviving in the wild without assistance.


While we love all animals, please be aware that pets are not permitted at Maymont. Service animals are welcome.
