Rainbow Ranch Petting Zoo

9906 Rte 15, Nashville, IL 62263


This isn't your typical petting zoo! Rainbow Ranch gives visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with camels, zebras, kangaroos and more.

Want to give your kids or group a personal tour of an exotic petting zoo? Looking for a beautiful farm wedding venue or outdoor event that can hold up to 250 people? The Rainbow Ranch is a 170 year old family-owned farm in the peaceful Illinois countryside. There are llamas, alpacas, donkeys, sheep, goats, fallow deer, pot-belly pigs, peacocks, ducks, chickens, emus, swans, cows, horses, a zebra, a zedonk, and even camels & kangaroos! In the spring, Rainbow Ranch hosts 'Baby Bonanza' where folks can bottle-feed our baby goats, calves and other animals.
