About Honey Hill Farm

Honey Hill Farm provides quality animal attractions in amusement parks all over the country. Read more about our family and what we do on our About Us page.



Llamas and goats and ducks, oh my!

We all know that petting zoos are awesome. What you may not know is that they are a lot of work!

We are looking for reliable and enthusiastic animal lovers to take care of our pets and their visitors throughout the season. This position includes petting, hugging, brushing and loving a variety of animals. But it also means scooping manure, interacting with the public, maintaining a safe and happy environment for the animals and park guests, and working hard for them each day, sometimes in hot, cold or rainy weather.

Previous experience working with livestock is preferred, but we will provide training to anyone willing to work hard and get their hands dirty.



Most of our attractions are open daily beginning in May and going through August, then becoming weekends only.

Hours for this position vary from park to park, but are often approximately 11am-7pm during the regular season.  Weekday and weekend hours are available but team-members usually work the entire day.

Some parks feature Winterfest in November and December. Great team-members may be offered additional employment during this time.



We are looking for the best! Our image is extremely important to us. All Honey Hill Farm team-members must be clean-cut, enthusiastic, competent, extremely reliable, and able to pass a background check.

Other requirements include:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • A love of animals and people
  • The ability to be on time and ready to give 100% everyday
  • Previous experience with livestock or equines, or a willingness to jump in and learn quickly
  • The ability to work as part of a team
  • A friendly and outgoing disposition
  • Excellent judgement, with the ability to adapt to different circumstances
  • The ability to work in extreme temperatures (hot and cold)
  • The ability to lift at least 40 lbs.
  • A commitment to quality customer service and animal care
  • Willingness to adhere to Honey Hill Farm’s and the amusement park’s rules and requirements for attire and conduct
  • A commitment to work through the entire season (some exceptions available to students)
