The Good Earth Farm (2141 B Road, Loxahatchee Groves) will hold its season opener on Sunday, Oct. 4. The farm is open on Sundays from Oct. 4 until the end of March.
Good Earth Farm is both a petting zoo and a nonprofit animal sanctuary. There are many new things coming up this season. The zoo has a zebra, 18 rescued and rehabilitated horses, more than 120 birds ranging from parrots to parakeets, and a new gift shop with ice cream, gifts and horse items.
Good Earth Farm recently introduced guinea pig therapy, where you can sit and be surrounded by guinea pigs, as well as a new aviary where visitors can feed parakeets.
The ever-popular Sunday pony rides are still available, as well as unlimited hay rides at the petting zoo.
Also new this season, the farm is starting its own social event, similar to a green market. For more information, or to become a vendor, call (561) 792-2666 or visit www.goodearthfarm.info.
