A Tampa Bay Tradition for Over 65 Years!

Part of the famous Camp Keystone – Florida’s oldest continuously inhabited camp – Old McMicky’s Farm opened in 1991 and quickly became a favorite field trip destination for kids and parents.

Camp Keystone gave thousands of kids from all corners of the U.S. fun, unforgettable memories for six decades – hosting staff and campers such as Burt Reynolds.

Creating a big family of camp alumni, Camp Keystone and Old McMicky’s Farm encompassed the fun activities in nature, horseback riding and singing around campfires – and American farm life.

Old McMicky’s Farm hosted field trips for about 30,000 Tampa Bay area children every year, with many seeing and interacting with goats, pigs and sheep for the first time in their lives.

There's fun for all generations at Old McMicky's Farm in Odessa, Fl.

Today – Bringing the Farm to New Generations!

Re-opening in 2013, Old McMicky’s Farm is bringing back the beloved tradition of farm life to a new generation – offering a rare opportunity for kids to interact face-to-face with farm animals. This hands-on educational experience shows everyone from young to old how life was, and still is lived on an American farm.

Visiting the farm makes for a fun-filled day with the opportunity to touch, see and have an up close experience with American farm animals – while also taking an exciting hayride, exploring the barn maze, milking a cow and more!

Another very important mission of Old McMicky’s Farm is giving back to the community – creating an amazing day of fun-filled memories for children and wounded veterans facing challenges.

Hands-On Animal Education

Old McMicky’s farm is not a petting zoo – it’s an educational farm/day camp teaching about farm animals and farm life.

Surveys show that 7 out of 10 people have never milked a cow, touched a goat or seen a newborn baby farm animal. Old McMicky’s gives visitors the opportunity to experience what it’s like to live on a working farm.

Visitors of all ages can take a guided tour of the farm with our professional tour guides – and enjoy the beautiful view of Crescent Lake while eating lunch in the oak tree-shaded picnic areas.

Come have fun on a tour, bring a lunch and enjoy nature’s tranquility.

Come Remember what Life is all about at Old McMicky’s Farm!

Ralph Zuckerman, Owner of Old McMicky's Farm.

Sincerely,

Ralph Zuckerman
