The community has spoken! Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo has been chosen as the Cañon City Daily Record Reader's Choice For Best Outdoor Recreation/Day Trip. For years, the larger attractions in the area have received this award, and the owners of Shepperly Farm are honored and humbled to be chosen by Fremont County as the top place to visit for a day trip.
Operating as a non-profit, education-based petting zoo, Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo has increased in popularity since opening in 2019, with people stopping in from all over the country to get a peek at our adorable animals. Penny and Jude, our Wallaby siblings are a big hit with adults and kids alike. It's not every day you get to pet and feed a Wallaby - especially in the middle of Colorado!
All of us here at Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo want to thank the Cañon City Community for choosing us as the Best Outdoor Recreation/Day Trip. It is truly an honor, and we look forward to introducing animals and animal education to visitors for years to come.
