White Tailed Deer
Madison Avenue- "Maddie"

Please remember that horses have sensitive stomachs and we ask that you do not feed them.

White Tailed Deer
We have had a herd of white tailed deer since the mid 1960's. We are members of the Pennsylvania Deer Farmers Association. We are strictly monitored by PA Department of Agriculture and the USDA. Often in the spring and fall the deer change their coats to prepare them for the next season. This transition is not pretty, but is necessary for the well-being of the animals. The deer tend to be shy, but often a handful of corn can entice them to come visit you. Almost every spring we welcome new fawns born on the farm. The fawns natural instincts are to hide, so it can be a challenge to see them when they are newborns. After the first few weeks visitors can see them following their moms.
