After researching and planning our summer family vacation, we decided to spend a night in Keremeos in order to hit up Farmer John's Petting Zoo. We show up at 3:30pm and the road is blocked stating they are closed even though the sign says they close at 5pm. I walked up the driveway and they told me to leave as they are now closed FOR GOOD!! We decided to visit The Grist Mill instead which was nice. When I enquired at the Mill Visitor office about the petting farm the nice fella stated that this past Wednesday all of a sudden Farmer John's was closed without any notice. When we drove by the farm later the animals were being loaded up and shipped off. BEWARE -- the Farmer John's Petting Zoo website does not indicate they have closed their doors forever. VERY misleading!!!!!
This was a wonderful place for a family outing, particularly if the children are small. Sadly, it is now closed.
