All sounds will be off and our arcade will be partially open with some of the more dimmed light and quiet games.

Mr. Joe’s Farm
PO Box 4163 Riverside
(951) 657-8408
http://mrjoesfarm.org
3-acre Mead Valley farm with 20 variety of animals including alpacas, miniature horses and donkeys, goats, pot belly pigs, sheep, tortoises, ducks, geese, chickens and Gwen the iguana. We also have non-traditional animals such as a pair of emus and a two-hump camel named Oscar that the public can see and touch. Hands-on experience with animals, so we call ourselves a hands-on zoo rather than a petting zoo because you get to interact more in their natural environment on a farm than if you went to a petting zoo. Many of the animals roam free and approach new people with curiosity.
