  • About

    Rooterville is home to over 400 rescued farm animals on 30 beautiful, peaceful acres in the quaint town of Melrose. We love sharing our amazing animal ambassadors with visitors who are thrilled and fascinated to be able to interact with them just like they do with their pets. Pigs as large as 900 lbs are gentle and inquisitive. Tinsel the 2,000 steer loves bananas and getting his chin scratched. Admiral Fluffy Boots the rooster, loves to be held while you get a great selfie with him, do you get the picture? You've never experienced farm animals like you will at Rooterville! We also have hives of honey bees and invite people to participate in classes to learn about them. And the butterfly gardens will delight you with the beautiful flowers and endless numbers of native butterflies and birds. You will want to come back with your friends and family! Its a great experience.
