Cartersville Farm allows visitors to do drive-thru, feed animals

Georgia animal farm allows you to visit at a distance

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, most businesses have had to pivot the way they operate. For Pettit Creek Farms in Cartersville, Georgia, it was no different.

“My daughter, she got to studying the restrictions and how to comply with it, and see what we could do, and she said, ‘Daddy, I think this will work,’" explained farm owner Scott Allen.

The sprawling 80-acre animal farm is usually filled with visitors getting up close and personal experiences with the animals. But with social distancing in effect, Scott Allen and his daughter decided pivoting to a drive-thru was the only option.
