About Dominoes Petting Farm

Domino's Petting Farm is conveniently located in Ann Arbor, Michigan and is a perfect setting for people of all ages to learn about farming and farm animals.

Come join us for a fun-filled day. Pet our animals, including our many rare breeds, and enjoy a hayride.

Walk down to our beautiful pond and feed our ducks or stroll around our 15 acres of open pasture and see animals in their natural habitat.

Domino's Petting Farm, opened in 1984, is a living symbol of our appreciation and commitment to the farming industry and to the values evident on a traditional farm. The farm serves as a historic tribute to the farming past in the Ann Arbor area.

The Petting Farm barn was built in 1925 by a local family, the Zeebs, and was once part of a working farm. Their property and buildings were purchased by Thomas S. Monaghan to make way for a large office complex to house his pizza empire in the early 1980's. He named the complex Domino's Farms. It is approximately 280 acres and the petting farm uses 25 acres of that property.

In 1984, when building construction for the offices began in earnest, the farm barn was moved to its current location across the street. In 1998, Domino's Farms sold Domino's Pizza but retained the name, Domino's Farms.

Many guests assume that the farm is subsidized by Domino's Farms or Domino's Pizza. However, Domino's Petting Farm is a non-profit 501(3)c and operates on its own.  We want to thank you, our visitors, who contribute to our operating budget. Your continued generous support allows us to present this unique opportunity to the community.
