    More Wild Animals of Ancient Oaks

    Ancient Oaks used to be and still is a bit of a working farm. The property had a large chicken operation as well as apple orchards and livestock over its past hundred years of history. The Kriz family raised cows, pigs, peacocks, horses, birds and other animals since the 1960s. Today Ancient Oak's wilder animals include:
