Eudora Farms is a culmination of hopes and dreams brought to life by Mark & Kim Nisbet. Mark and Kim first met in the summer of 1990. Kim was attending a dog training facility in North Carolina to become a Certified Obedience Instructor. Mark was using the professional dog handling services of the same facility to show his award winning Akitas. While it wasn't love at first sight, over the next several years their friendship grew as Kim's interest in Akitas was born. That friendship blossomed into true love in the summer of 1997 and they were married on September 26th, 1998 at Eudora Farms, surrounded by family, friends and their growing assortment of animals. Since that date they have provided a loving spacious home to more than 200 rare and exotic animals from around the world. As the collection of animals grew, so has their family. They have four children, Josh, Travis, Shelby, and Tristan. The Nisbet's enjoy raising their family on the outskirts of city life. Mark has a successful career as a regional sales manager for one of the largest clinical labs in the country. Kim manages the farm and cares for their children. Their overwhelming love and utmost respect for animals of the world has sent them on a journey in life to educate about and preserve these wonderful creatures for future generations to come.

APPEARING , APRIL 17 THRU APRIL 27
The Oak Mountain State Fair is the only destination around Birmingham where you have the opportunity to ride a camel. If you think camel riding is like riding a horse, you really should try it. Just getting off the ground is an experience. And once those two front legs finally rise after you’ve been tipped forward by the rear ascent, you’re two meters up and in for a jerky saunter. Kids love riding our gentle giants, but don’t let that put you off joining in too. You wouldn’t be the first hesitant adult to find this little adventure surprisingly fun. Our Camels love to have their picture taken and will often pose in a variety of ways!
