Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm Main Page


The Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm is more than just an outdoor museum dedicated to Jimmy Carter’s boyhood days. It is an actual farm where traditional crops and animals are grown and raised. However, it is not a petting zoo, so be careful about trying to touch the animals when they come close to the fence. You can do it, but you could get bitten.

At the entrance to the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm is a goat pen on one side of the walkway and a chicken house on the other. The eggs that are laid each day are given to Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. If they have enough, Park Rangers get to enjoy them.
