C. Fulton Shaw's Old Macdonald's Farm in Mission Viejo.

Old MacDonald's was a Farm attraction that featured trained animals at Knott’s Berry Farm. Fulton Shaw originated the Old MacDonald's Farm name at Knott’s, and then moved it to Mission Viejo in 1969 after a disagreement with the Knott’s Berry Farm management Walter Knott and his wife Cordelia Knott.


  1. Cool info I never knew about. Great post.

  2. Amazing! I was just thinking of this place the other day! I moved here as a kid in 1969 and we loved visiting Old McD's Farm! I loved the mules and the chicken that played piano.

  3. I used to love this place when I was a kid, especially liked the machines that would make the little wax figures.
