Families Love Adorable Pettit Creek Farms in Cartersville, Ga

Just a few miles from historic downtown Cartersville, Pettit Creek Farms is home to a menagerie of animals to rival a few zoos I have visited. Unlike a traditional zoo however, owners Scott and June Allen have placed most of the animals from different parts of the globe in the same pastures. A glance around any given pasture will show you heart-warming odd animal friends like a baby camel and her best friend, an old goat. The farm is a place where you will actually meet animals instead of just observing them. The Allens have hand-raised many of the animals from birth and are experts in their field.
