Shepperly Farm

Come Be A Part Of Our Family

Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo
When we moved our family to Canon City in 2018, we had no idea that a year later we would be running a petting zoo out of our backyard. We started adding animals to our space and inviting friends, family and neighbors over to watch them play. When we saw the happiness, joy and giggles our animals brought others, we knew we had to expand these good feelings to the rest of the community. 

Our goal is to provide people with a better understanding of the animals with hands on animal education and knowledge on how to better care for animals. But most of all, we want Shepperly Farm to be a place where you can relax and soak in all the love that our animals truly love to receive and give. 

Curious about what kind of animals you can interact with on your visit? Check out our animals to see just a few of the furry friends we have here at Shepperly Farm.

In our 3 years in this wonderful town, we have gone from owning no animals to having our own Ol' MacDonald farm on our property. And we consider each of our animals to be part of our family. But by visiting our farm, engaging with our animals and choosing to spend your time here, that makes you part of our family, too. We hope you leave here with a little more knowledge about animals than you came in with. We hope you take with you the refreshed and happy feelings from spending time making memories with our animals. 

Head on over to the tickets page, and come be a part of our family.
