Where We're Crazy About Animals
Here's What People are Saying about Plum Loco!
"Great place to go with the kids. This is a very nicely run, wonderfully thought out animal farm. The animals are well cared for and the whole place is very safe and clean. Plus, there are lots of wonderful things for toddlers and young children to play with - play houses, tools and vehicles. This is especially welcome for families traveling with young children who need some play time. There are shaded picnic tables for snacking and lunch, so you can bring coffee and/or lunch to eat while the kids are playing. We've been to Plum Loco several times and the kids (from 2 to teenagers) have always had a wonderful time here." (Trip Advisor, September 2015)
"Great day of vacation. We (Wife, myself and 5yr. old son) decided to go to Plum Loco on a fairly cool and overcast day during August. The instructions were great, the animals very well taken care of, and philosophy of the farm unique. My son is very friendly and outgoing verbally, if not adventurous physically. We spent 5.5 hours there, and brought with us a picnic lunch. He made several friends playing in the mini town, spent 2 hours on the farm table, played large connect 4, and checkers. We had a very relaxing day." (Trip Advisor, August 2015)
"Fabulous family activity! This was our second visit to Plum Loco and it did not disappoint. This charming family-run farm is the perfect place to spend a few hours of family fun. The animal area is extremely clean, organized and well-cared for. The kids LOVE feeding the carrots to the mules and miniature horses. My kids all wanted extra buckets of feed! There is a very clean and well-kept bathroom to wash your hands afterwards. The games and toys they have for children made for a very relaxing afternoon as the kids were entertained and the adults could chat. While I do agree with some reviews that there were a lot of things for the younger kids to do, our middle schoolers also had a great time playing the over sized checkers, chess and connect four games (as did the adults!!) All in all, this is a great activity to do while in Door County...we will definitely be back." (Trip Advisor, August 2015)
"Great place for families. I went with my daughter's family which included a 1.5 and 3 year old. We couldn't get them to leave. We like it so much after the first visit that we went back on Father's Day for the kids to enjoy the miniature villiage and feeding the animals while we enjoyed a picnic in one of the gazebo's. Great hidden gem." (Trip Advisor, June 2015)
"Our kids loved this place. This place is out in the country, nicely off the beaten path. It is an old farm, with animals to pet and feed. You cannot go in any animal pens, rather just pet and feed through the fence. All four of our kids really enjoyed the "play" area, which had little houses to play in, tractors to pedal, horses to rock on, and a little store to play in. This was their favorite, they could have just done this all day long!" (Trip Advisor, June 2015)
"Don't forget to bring your picnic lunch and chairs - you can stay all day! This is a great place to bring your small children or grandchildrren. They can play all day or stay until their naptime! There are toyys galore and animals to pet and feed. Linda and Jeremy are terrific hosts who take great pride in their farm and care for their animals." (Trip Advisor, February, 2015).
"Charming Farm, well cared-for animals. My husband and I visited this charming farm. The animals were affectionate and the grounds were neat. A great place for families and kids, but we had fun too. They provide feeding bucket and treats for the animals. (Trip Advisor, October 2014).
"Sweet, natural and nice place for an outing. You could feel the love the concept when you walk through the gates, there is good karma here and if you are looking for a small family getaway this is a nice place for youngsters." (Trip Advisor, July 2014)
"Great time for the whole family. We visited Plum Loco Animal Farm in July and had the best time! We have children between the ages of 20-2 and they ALL had a great time! We were able to feed so many animals for a minimal fee and didn't get trampled by any like you would at most petting zoos. There were games to play for older kids and adults and a little play house, general store and small farm to play with for younger kids. We all had fun!" (Trip Advisor, July 2014)
"A Gem! What Ann amazing place this is! We took our 3 year old and 7 month old. The owner was great. He came out and explained things and brought out a miniature horse for the kids to pet. There are little kids sized buildings and so many fun things for kids to do. We would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks for the great experience." (Trip Advisor, June, 2014).
"Kids loved it! My 6 year old twins had a wonderful time when we visited in July. Just now, my daughter chose to write about her visit for a school assignment and both were asking me when we can go back. It is a must see for our trip next summer." (Trip Advisor, January 2014)
"Fun for the family. We spent the morning at plum loco and the kids loved it. The play area is well supplied and kept the kids entertained for several hours. They are even set up well if you brought your own lunch. The location is good from anywhere in door county. They even have a great bathroom with changing station, not an outhouse. This was a great way to spend half of the day." (Trip Advisor, June 2013)
"Great young family activity. The adults and kids in my party all had a great time (kids 3, 5, 5, 8). It was a great animal experience. Feed buckets were $2 for a bunch of carrots and some grain. The animals are super friendly. Bathroom facility available and was nicer than expected. The little play area was fun for my age group. It started to rain and we were offered rain checks, but we had so much fun we didn't feel the need to come back right away!" (Trip Advisor, August 2012)
"Must do in Door County! This is a wonderful place to bring young children. The Owners go out of their way to make your visit pleasant." (Trip Advisor, July 2012)
"Great hands on experience!Wonderful experience for the kids! Feed was cheap so kids could feed animals all morning! Staff friendly and knowledgeable!" (Trip Advisor, July 2012)
"Outstanding little place! Our kids (age 3 and 7) had so much fun the first time we actually went back an unplanned, second time in a 5 day trip to Door County! The family that runs this place clearly loves both animals and children. The animals are happy and well kept and the respect and consideration flows to the amenities for people, too. There is a 'petting zoo' type area where kids can feed the animals, but the best part (for the adults!) is a large fenced-in area full of toys for all ages, ringed by picnic tables, that makes you feel you've been invited to a backyard party. Between the petting/feeding area and the 'backyard', there is an 'outhouse' but don't be fooled - it has electricity and indoor plumbing as well! In addition to a flush toilet and sink there is a well-stocked baby changing table - very thoughtful. Concessions and souvenirs are available for sale and prices are reasonable. You're also welcome to bring a picnic lunch. The owners are around for questions but unobtrusive and welcoming. We spent a couple hours here each time and ended up getting season passes our second day. Sitting in the shade watching the kids happily play was very relaxing. Well worth the price of admission - twice!" (Trip Advisor, July 2012)
"The owners of Plum Loco were around to answer questions and were not only very knowledgeable, but kind. The farm was clean and well maintained. They have an amazing, hand made play area for the kids. Our children spent over 2 hours playing in the miniature sized barn, general store and house." (Trip Advisor, June 2012)
"Plum Loco was nice and relaxing. Staff were very loving and friendly. Animals were tame and social, and if you have kids who don't want to go by animals they have a bunch of play houses, toys, and books outside for them to enjoy." (Trip Advisor, September 2011)
"Plum good family fun! Great place, teaches children all animals besides cute babies deserve love, respect and care and can be appreciated and enjoyed. Animals fed only healthy options. Play area with miniature farm house, general store, barn complete with mini tractors for kids to enjoy, well thought out and equipped. Puzzles, games, farm animal toys to create own farm. Bags, horseshoes and more for older kids and adults to enjoy. Great way to spend the day" (Trip Advisor, August 2011)
