The Arkansas Heritage Farm at the Little Rock Zoo is a haven for a diverse array of heritage breeds, representing a living testament to our agricultural history. These breeds, carefully preserved and curated, offer a glimpse into a time before industrial agriculture dominated the landscape. Each animal embodies traits honed over generations to thrive in specific local environments, showcasing the resilience and adaptability of traditional livestock breeds.

From hearty sheep to resilient poultry, the farm is home to a variety of species, each with its own unique cultural and genetic heritage. These animals carry with them a legacy that spans generations, embodying a connection to our past that is both tangible and invaluable.

As an AZA-accredited facility, the Little Rock Zoo plays a crucial role in the conservation of these heritage breeds. By providing a sanctuary for these animals and promoting awareness of their significance, the zoo contributes to the preservation of our agricultural heritage and ensures that future generations can continue to appreciate the rich diversity of our agricultural past.
