Where you'll be

We will start our experience in our historic, restored Kentucky barn. You may park right near the barn). We will introduce you to the donkeys and you will become friends very quickly! If you have a discussion "topic" in mind, we will give you some time to share with Al, Gus, or Smudge. They are very good listeners and will "lend their ears" to anything you wish to say--

This host took a special request date and made it work for us outside of their normal availability. They were flexible and understanding when we had a few little obstacles that put us a little later than what we had planned. A thoughtful surprise was provided to my mom for her birthday which she loved. Although Celine has a format for the experience that she offers, she felt out what we wanted and goes with the flow! 1 one of us stayed loving on donkeys, 2 of us chose to take a tour of the farm, and the other 2 took a nice walk. Now about the donkeys! They are so sweet and gentle. They allow for brushing and rubs and kisses on their noses. Their farm cat is one of the most personable kitties I have ever met and their dog is sweet too!! We left with super cute shirts and a special take-away. It would be awfully fun to come back and stay in their farm tiny-house!! I highly recommend booking a private booking. It wouldn’t have been as enjoyable sharing the donkeys with others ;)

We celebrated my wife’s special birthday (number to remain unmentioned!) at Potato Hill with Celine, Ron, and the donkeys. It was absolutely amazing, and exceeded all of my very high expectations! Celine is so creative. She spent time asking me details about my wife, and designed a custom tailored experience just for us. She made us feel just like family (actually better!) The donkeys were so funny, loving, and charming but frankly probably did whatever they felt like doing! And the extra touches were better than I even hoped for- perfect blend of elegance and comfort. The only problem I now have is how to ever top that for next birthday. Thank you so much!!

Celine and Ron were joyful people and created such a magical experience for my 3-year-old’s family birthday gathering. The donkey experience and the peaceful aura of the farm were just what the doctor ordered!

If you need some donkey therapy (don't we all?) with a relaxing day out in beautiful country, I suggest Potato Hill Farm! Celine is very friendly and hospitable with some thoughtful surprises, and the donkeys are really sweet and special. We left feeling rejuvenated.

Celine was so thoughtful and great with the kids! She has such love for her donkeys and feedings them/grooming them during our experience brought such joy for my daughter. Her farm is so beautiful. I loved that she gave us a tour around and was so thoughtful in the things she did with little tokens for us too take home. Our experience will be long remembered.

We had the BEST afternoon with Smudge, Al and Gus! :) We were looking forward to this visit and it did not disappoint! The donkeys were sooo friendly. Celine was a great host and facilitated us getting to know her four legged friends. She has the perfect set up! We can’t wait to visit again!
