Visiting the Superstition Farm in Mesa can be done with or without scheduling a tour. Admission to the farm is $4 a person, which includes the petting zoo, yard games, and their garden area. Feed for the animals is $3 a bucket and $2 for a refill.

We paid for admission in their store, where they sell ice cream, butter, eggs, and milk. They also had baby chicks and bunnies in the store and brought out one of the bunnies so we could pet him.

Next we went out to the petting zoo, where there was goats, donkeys, and pigs. They were very friendly and excited to be pet and fed! It was so much fun to be able to interact with the farm animals up close. We only purchased one bucket of food for my kids to share, and while it was enough, we could have definitely used more. My kids love feeding animals from their hands!

After feeding the animals, we walked around the garden in search of yard games. The garden area was beautiful, but my kids were too excited about the animals to stay in the garden area very long. We only saw one yard game, but it was fun to try our hand at lassoing a cow! There was no swing set or bales of hay for us to climb on.

We also spent some time in the area with the horses and the cows. They were so sweet and gentle and stayed near the fence so we could easily pet them.

My kids were the most excited about seeing a peacock up close! There were two peacocks on walking around the farm and we were able to get very close to them and see the details on their feathers so clearly.

Their website says that tours are for school groups or groups with over 10 people, so we did not schedule a tour. However, I asked when I paid admission and was told that they can do tours for smaller groups if you send an email to info@superstitionfarm.com to schedule.

The tours can be scheduled any day of the week, but there are no longer different tour options. All tours are $12 a person and include: time in the petting zoo, making a cotton seed necklace, and enjoying fresh milk and ice cream.

Visiting the Superstition Farm in Mesa without a tour is a good option if you have kids who just want to pet and feed the animals, but I think we would have had a better experience on the tour, where we could learn more about the farm and the animals that they have. Learn more on their website.
