Bob and Coni Keyes first Green Meadows Petting Farm was established in 1964 in Waterford, Wisconsin. In 1983, at the behest of one of their 13 children, the second Green Meadows Farm was opened near Houston, Texas. In 1984 Bob and Coni retired to Florida to avoid the harsh Wisconsin winters but by 2005, Green Meadows had grown to over 13 locations; one for each child, if you do the math.
