7 Wild Encounters in Connecticut

By Traci L. Suppa
We've got places in Connecticut where you can interact with animals of every order.

Farm Fun

Want to check in with some chickens, or gab with a goat? Find a farm open to the public. There are 400 chickens at Flamig Farm in West Simsbury, as well as a petting zoo with alpacas, cows, emus, goats, peacocks, potbellied pigs and sheep. At Fort Hill Farms in Thompson, meet cows and calves on guided tours, and sample fresh milk and ice cream.

Karabin Farms in Southington is a great place for a wagon ride to meet the cows, pigs, turkeys and chickens on-site. Creamery Brook Bison in Brooklyn runs monthly Bison Adventure Saturdays, giving wagon rides to the bison pasture.
