If you are a yoga, wine and animal lover, The Barn Hill Preserve of Delaware in Frankford, is the destination for you. The Barn Hill Preserve offers activities and events where visitors can find their Zen with kangaroos or spend the night sipping wine with sloths.


The Barn Hill Preserve of Delaware was established in 2015 by Delaware native Josh Mueller. During college, Mueller worked at the original Barn Hill Preserve in Louisiana and decided it was time to open his own in his hometown. The mission of the preserve is to educate the next generation on conservation through interactive and immersive animal experiences — the two most popular events are kangaroo yoga and sipping wine with sloths.


Kangaroo Yoga started at local gyms to help raise money for the bushfires in Australia, but the event was so popular, it became a regular event. When the pandemic hit, they began hosting yoga sessions in the 8,000-square-foot enclosure. There are five different marsupials named Rufus, Tyson, Chandler, Arnie and Mack. Guests will see the gang hopping around during sessions, falling asleep on yoga mats or giving people hugs.


If you are more interested in drinking wine, check out Sippin’ with Sloths where you can enjoy wine from local wineries and learn more about and hang out the slow-moving animals. Tickets for this specific event go for $40 and come with a glass of wine, a cheese plate and an encounter with a sloth.
