Erickson's Petting Zoo

11890 Hope Road
Osakis, MN 56360


Do you miss the opportunity to go to Grandpa's and Grandma's farm? The next best place is Erickson's Petting Zoo of rural Osakis, Minnesota.

This old farmstead - officially recognized as a Centruy Farm - was homesteaded by Dan and Eva Weber (Dave Erickson's grandparents) in 1915.  Dave and Pam Erickson, along with their family, have converted the big red barn into a home for a wide variety of farm animals and birds.

Animals include pygmy goats and their kids, sheep, miniature horses,  Sara the llama,  potbelly pigs, rabbits, and cats.  Birds include many varieties and colors of chickens, ducks, geese, pheasants, peacocks, pigeons, and doves.
