Activity Overview

Ray of Light Farm is a hidden treasure. The farm is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned, abused, and neglected animals. This farm is free to visit, although they welcome donations of any size to help feed and care for the animals.

They offer pony rides and birthday parties and guided tours, shopping at the Tack and gift shop and a playroom for children. They care for horses, goats, rabbits, roosters and chickens, alpacas, peacocks, turtles, sheep and even a zedonk ( the cross between a zebra and a donkey). The farm is a pleasant and educational place to visit.

Things to Do

  • Leisurely walking tour viewing the animals
  • Pony Rides in the indoor arena for a $10 donation
  • Birthday Parties
  • Volunteer
  • Horseback Riding Lesson and Equestrian Classes available for ages 3 and up

Insider Tips

  • Sign in at the front desk before visiting the animals
  • There is a sign as you enter that says that you need an appointment to visit the farm. Do not let this deter you, as you do not need an appointment to do so.
  • Once you pull into the main driveway, continue up and around the little hill to the large parking area. You will need to enter the Tack Shop to sign in and sign a waiver before visiting the animals.
  • Sometimes you are lucky enough to get a personal guided tour by one of the farm volunteers. This can be arrange for group visits and field trips. Call ahead for details
  • If you are lucky to get a guided tour, the guide may bring some animal feed to offer, otherwise Visitors should not feed the animals.
  • You may pet the animals if you like but you may not enter the enclosures.
  • Feel free to explore the barn, for there are other animals to explore. The animals all turn in for the night at 3pm.
  • Don't forget to visit Fancy Pants the popular Zedonk on the farm! She is a fascinating resident on the farm.
