12 Jul Nickel-O Farms:
West Nyack, NY
We had so much fun at Nickel-O Farms. The place is pulsing with life. We visited the petting zoo one afternoon. The petting zoo includes a bunny area where you can go into the bunny cage and interact with the furry bunnies. Right near the bunnies was a pony and a baby horse only 3 weeks old.
Outside there were lots of goats, sheep, donkeys and other domestic animals. There are chickens roaming around the farm. Animal food can be purchased to feed the animals with. Visitors can enter and interact with baby goats in their pen and the foul pen. There were some interesting looking birds including a few that resemble ostriches. There are even some cows and bulls (not for petting) at the far end of the farm.
Nickel-O Farms is popular for the horseback riding lessons they offer. From beginners to expert lessons from toddlers to senior citizens. Nickel-O also offers therapeutic riding for special needs clients. They have fifteen horses on site and the staff is passionate and devoted both to the horses and the riders.
