Khao Yai is well-known for its grandeur mountains and scenic views — its name literally translate to ‘large mountain’ in Thai. Other than flora and fauna, it is also not short of animals, making it a wonderful place to visit for all animal lovers.

Aside from the signature Khao Yai National Park where you get to catch a glimpse of wild goats and elephants, here are seven other farms and zoos you should visit when you travel to Khao Yai.

Some of these farms have really affordable animal feeding prices as well.

1. Khao Yai Farm Village

With a classic and iconic red barn house smacked right in the middle, Khao Yai Farm Village is one of the most instagrammable farms around the vicinity.

It is also one of the few farms that allows their sheeps to freely roam while you are feeding them, providing better photo-taking opportunities with unblocked views. The general area is fenced up, so you don’t have to worry about animals escaping. However, compared to other farms, Khao Yai Farm Village lacked variety, with only a handful pigs and rabbits in another section.

Location: หมู่ที่ 7 16 Khanong Phra, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima 30130, Thailand
Price: 50 baht (include 1 bunch of grass)

2. Farm Chokchai

One of the largest dairy farm in Khao Yai with more than 60 years of history, Farm Chokchai is extremely popular among tourists and should not be missed.

On top of animal-watching and feeding, the farm tour brings you deeper into the process of producing dairy products like milk and ice-cream. The farm also conducts family-friendly activities such as a cowboy show, pet show, horse-riding and ATV-riding.

Location: Moo 2 Mittraphap Road Pak Chong, Nakhon Ratchasima
Price: 300 baht (adult), 150 baht (child)

3. Ratsamee Farm

Feeding baby pigs at Khao Yai Ratsamee Farm

Although this farm cannot be easily found on Google Maps, it’s undeniably our favourite. A hidden gem in Khao Yai, this is the only farm on the list that allows you to feed goats with bottle milk. It’s also the most affordable.

For only 50 baht, you will receive a cute woven basket of carrots, vegetables, chicken feed, and a milk bottle to feed various farm animals such as pigs, bunnies, goats, horse, and chicken.

There is also a campsite at the farm for an idyllic farm stay experience. Just behind the farm, there is a mini spring to splash around, as well as a treetop swing. The best part about Ratsamee farm is how secluded it is,

Address: GFX6+XHH, Unnamed Road,, Mu Si, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima 30130, Thailand
Price: Free, 50 baht per feeding basket

4. Farm Morpor

Farm Morpor is one of the more kid-friendly farms in Khao Yai, offering farm activities like horse washing, eggs collecting, painting, and pony rides. However, the most adorable baby piglets stole the limelight.

We highly recommend purchasing a basket of carrots to feed them, or at least stepping into the sty to interact with them. Aside from typical farm animals, we were surprised that there were ostrich and geese for us to feed too. On top of that, there was a random slide at the corner which was extremely slippery for an adrenaline boost.

Location: HCFH+V7F, Mu Si, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima 30130, Thailand
Price: 80 baht (admission), 50 baht (animal feeding)

5. Bonanza Exotic Zoo

If you are bored of feeding the same few animals, Bonanza Exotic Zoo is the place for you.

Aside from common farm animals like horses and goats, the zoo houses exotic animals like giraffes, parrots and tortoises. The list goes on, and you can possibly get close to and feed more than ten different species.

Visit the zoo first thing in the morning before the crowd starts for better photo opportunities.

Location: 236, Khanong Phra, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima 30130, Thailand
Price: 200 baht (includes one pack of carrots)

6. Primo Piazza

One of Khao Yai’s best attractions Primo Piazza is a small Tuscan village square with olden European architecture — completed with cobblestone streets, brick walls, and flowers on the windowsill.

The animal feeding section is limited to a small area where you get a close-up encounter with Alpacas, as well as feed them grass.

Location: 200/2 หมู่ที่ 10 Mu Si, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima 30130, Thailand
Price: 200 baht

7. Khonyok Sheep Farm

Khonyok Sheep Farm situated far from the popular tourist attractions in Khao Yai, but you might want to consider dropping by this small town village if you are driving to Khao Yai from Bangkok.

The place is beautifully decorated with vibrant and cheerful decors like macaron-shaped stands, swinging egg chairs, dinosaur figurines, fountains, and cartoon characters of all sorts. Aside from feeding sheep, you can also interact with parrots and horses.

Location: ทางหลวงแwผ่นดินหมายเลข. 3049 Sarika, Mueang Nakhon Nayok District, Nakhon Nayok 26000, Thailand
Price: 80 baht (adults), 50 baht (child); 200 baht (animal feeding)
