About Honey Hill Farm

Honey Hill Farm is a family company, serving events in Kentucky and Ohio, as well as providing the petting farm and staff to several theme parks in Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina, Missouri, Virginia and Michigan.  We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable theme park petting zoo attendants who will help us provide high quality animal interaction to the public.



Theme Park Petting Zoo Attendants work exclusively inside a single theme park. They come in before the petting farm opens to care for the animals, cleanup and get the area ready to open to guests. Once open, they will interact with park guests, answer questions, sell feed for the animals, ensure the safety of visitors and animals, and maintain a clean environment throughout the day. They end their day by providing evening care for the animals and closing the area. Work shifts vary from park to park, but are usually from 4:00 pm until 12:00 am for Winterfest.

Working as a Petting Zoo Attendant is a lot of fun, but it’s a lot of work too! The employees represent our company to thousands of people a day, and must uphold our standards for quality animal care, safety and customer service at all times and in all weather conditions.


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
  • The ability to be on time and ready to give 100% everyday.
  • 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
