The parks' history starts all the way back to the 1920s as a sanctuary for wild deer.
A gentleman lived on the hill behind the now-established park and LOVED feeding the wildlife! He eventually mounted a large dinner bell on a post and began ringing it every time he went out to feed the animals.
Over time, the deer were trained to that noise and would come when called.
The property became a major attraction with the locals. People brought their children out to have an up-close-and-personal experience with the local wildlife.
Now the park is operated much like other deer farms. We are still a non-profit organization and the main source of funding comes from visitors purchasing bags of feed to give to the deer!
Every summer we hear stories ranging from 90-year-old visitors who remember coming out with their parents to baby boomers now bringing out their grand children!
All these stories warm our hearts!
We are so excited to see NEW faces too!
