Where are you located?

Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo is located at 3240 Grandview Avenue in beautiful Canon City, Colorado. We have a wooden sign out front - you can't miss us! From Pueblo or Salida, Take U.S. 50 to Cañon City. From there it is a few minutes drive to our beautiful farm on the edge of town.

Can we feed the animals?

At Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo, we are happy to offer carrot tops and animal crackers for purchase to feed the animals. Please only feed the rabbits the carrot tops and not other parts of the carrot, as they contain too much sugar for the rabbits. 

Please do not feed the animals any other outside food, it will make them very sick. 

Do you offer mini horse rides?
