    • Hi Caroline. We are not associated with Holz Farm, you’ll want to follow the link at the top of this page to the City of Eagan’s site for that. However, we can answer your question. The farm does not have a petting area except sometimes during special festivals usually held in the spring and fall. It looks like both of these festivals were cancelled in 2020.
