GEE Funny Farm loves libraries! We love research! We love to meet with book lovers and animal lovers!
We love it all! We love to learn from the participants, too. We believe learning is a life-long and fun process!
We arrive to set-up 30-60 minutes early, depending on animals and set-up requirements. We clean up as we go and stay and conclude cleanup afterwards. We’ve had 20 animals inside a building and been invited back--our clean-up is that good!

"Thank you for coming! I’m very happy it worked out and the patrons loved having the opportunity to meet all the cool animals. I will pass along your name to my colleagues. I would love to have you back in the future and would be interested in hearing your ideas for new events! Have a great rest of your summer." - Jessica
"The GEE Funny Farm people are kind and gentle and wise, and this is communicated to all of their animals, who are very very happy and well-socialized. I saw them at the Tippecanoe Library to celebrate International Sloth Day (the day before). I'm so glad that I went (after reading about the event in a newspaper) because I got to interact with a sloth, a Flemish hare, a tortoise, a sugar glider, a rooster and a hen, and the air was electrified with excitement as children lined up to see these animals and experience them!" - Christina
"...thanks again for an awesome program! I can’t wait for the one next month! - Jennifer
Pricing is based on number of animals, size of animals, length of time for event, whether it is a weekday or Saturday, how many handlers we provide, and other factors.
Typical library events start at $400 for an hour with 5-7 small/medium sized animals and two handlers on weekdays. Every event is different -- we'd love to talk about your situation and provide a customized quote for you!
YAY! I'm so excited to have you back [at Aram Public Library] again this year! (I'm going to make it happen every darn year I can!)" - Katherine
"I'm on a computer at the Tippecanoe Library in Milwaukee, WI, where (in honor of International Sloth Day) I just saw a presentation from GEE Funny Farm and got to pet a sloth (a female who hung from a pole and was being fed lettuce), a hedgehog, a Flemish hare, a sugar glider, a tortoise (the shell keeps growing until it's a foot long! and was beautiful in its green design with yellow dots) and a rooster and a chicken! How wonderful, and all around were children and their parents also experiencing the (very tame) animals and being educated about them. What an unusual experience!" – Christina
