Entrance of Yoki’s Farm
After following the instructions going to the farm, we arrived at the entrance.
We went inside the gates and saw the reception area wherein tickets can be brought.
After getting the tickets, the tour can start.
Tip: Order dishes in advance in The Farm Table Restaurant so you can eat immediately after the tour.
One of the main attractions in the farm are the charming animals.
There were a lot of birds in the farm, here are just some of the birds that can be seen there.
These Peacocks were the first birds that we saw in the farm. They were located in a big enclosure near the antique items.
We were amazed how close can we see the Peacocks. Do not worry because they are not afraid of anyone who would want to take a picture with them.
I even saw an egg on the floor, I actually almost stepped on the egg! It was just there lying around the floor.
So, I placed it near an antique statue so it will be safe. But after a while, the Peacocks were surrounding it and kept on touching the egg.
We also saw an Albino Peacock in the farm.
We were so lucky because there are a lot of Peacocks who were showing off that’s why we got these shots.
Palawan Peacock Pheasant
Domestic Guineafowl (Binggala)
Grey Crowned Crane
Lady Amherst Pheasant
When we saw these chickens, we were amazed! It is because these chickens were huge! Their size is a combination of two regular chickens.
I just can’t put anything for scale because they were in cages 😆
This one is a bit curious bird.
It kept on looking at us while feeding the Zebra and just look at her below, she looked like she is going to do something naughty.
Black East Indies Duck
Indian Runner Duck
And here are some other ducks that I do not know what breed or species are they.
Busy and I also had a chance to meet and greet some of the birds in Yoki’s Farm.
I was glad when the White Cockatoo was placed on my arm. He was a bit shy at first.
But when he was on Busy’s arm, he was very playful! He pooped and he went around Busy’s shoulders.
This Macaw is bigger than the White Cockatoo, so we were expecting it to be heavy and may scratch us a bit. But, he was very cooperative whenever we take photos.
He is also good in taking selfies. Just look at him…
This bird was the biggest among the three! The Palm Cockatoo prefers to stand on our shoulders rather than our arms.
He was also cooperative on selfies, here’s a sample…
There were also a lot of Rabbits. The adult Rabbits were just there laying on the ground, so relaxed.
I also love the baby rabbits, or called as Kit.
I am not that sure but I think this cat is a Ragamuffin Cat. They were inside a mini house that has a lot of awesome cat toys.
There were a lot of miniature horse in the field.
They looked healthy and great! Plus they were also friendly!
There were 3 Zebras in Yoki’s Farm, but this Zebra is the friendliest. So, they let visitors mingle with him.
It kept on going near my face, and attempting to sneeze, so I am always alert.
I made him feed through the bucket, he ate a lot!
Then my fear happened… it sneezed on my face! HAHAHAHA 😂😂😂
Reptiles and Amphibians
There were some reptiles and amphibians in the farm, they were usually inside an aquarium, so it was hard to get a picture of them. Here are some of them that we managed to get a photo.
There were more or less 10 Tortoise in the farm. They have a big are to roam around, and a house for shelter.
They also have a water source, which is not a lot, because unlike the small turtles, Tortoise do not swim too much, they are land animals.
Red-Eared Slider Turtle
Unlike the Tortoise, this Red-Eared Slider Turtle loves to swim! So he is placed inside an aquarium with a lot of water, and of course some resting stones.
Scarlet King Snake
Even though this snake is colorful, it is not venomous.
This is the largest snake in the farm.

The Farm Table Menu
We started with the salad and the soup.

Overall we had a great time in Yoki’s Farm. We had a lot of fun and memorable moments, and we had a great time mingling with the animals.
