Hedrick's Exotic Animal Farm

7910 North Roy L. Smith Road
Nickerson, KS 67561

About Us:

Driving on Kansas Highway 96 just west of Hutchinson, you come upon a most unusual sight: zebras frolicking with camels, ostriches dancing in the brome, giraffes, kangaroos and too many other exotic critters to list.

This most unique animal farm, its entertainment affiliate - Hedrick's Promotions, Inc. and Hedrick's Bed & Breakfast Inn - are owned and operated by Joe and Sondra Hedrick, both native Kansas ranchers.

Joe's many years on the rodeo trail with various specialty acts involving exotic animals eventually evolved into exotic breeding as Hedrick Exotic Animal Farm, Inc.

The farm was soon followed by Hedrick's Promotions, Inc., which provides family entertainment with Camel Races, Ostrich Races, Pig Races and Educational Exotic Animal Exhibits at state fairs.

Later, Hedrick's Bed & Breakfast Inn was opened to provide a unique retreat. Families, groups and singles can meet and interact with the animals when they stay at the Bed & Breakfast located on the farm in Nickerson, Kansas.
