Zoo & Wildlife Animal Farm
Animals, Education, & Inspiration!
Welcome to Lucky Ladd Farms, a beloved and award-winning family-owned destination for agricultural and wildlife education in Middle Tennessee. Since 2009, we've been dedicated to providing unforgettable animal encounters and educational experiences to guests from Nashville, Franklin, Murfreesboro, and beyond.
Our farm is more than just a petting zoo; it's a journey into the heart and mind. Our goal has always been to reconnect guests to the natural world around them through meaningful experiences and education, making us a top choice for those seeking a wildlife park near Franklin or a family-friendly zoo experience in the Nashville area.
Home to more than 500 animals representing over 50 different species, Lucky Ladd's Zoo & Wildlife Animal Farm is a sanctuary for both captive-bred and rescued animals, each with their own unique story. For nearly two decades, Lucky Ladd's has worked to support, conserve, and protect a variety of rare and endangered livestock and poultry breeds from extinction. As our success with heritage breeds began to flourish we decided to expand our conservation and rescue efforts beyond the farm. Today, we continue to invest in our wildlife facilities and animal care team as we pride ourselves on being a premier zoological park for the Nashville region, offering a diverse range of interactive educational animal encounters, species conservation, and learning experiences now and in the future.
