The Andersen Animal Farm, behind Pea Soup Andersenös, had exotic animals and a train for children to ride. It was operated for two years in the early 1970s by former Pea Soup Andersenös owner Vince Evans, who died in a plane crash.
The business thrived under Evans' hand. By then the restaurant was purchasing 50 tons of peas each year, enough for three-quarters of a million bowls of soup! He built an aviary and filled it with parrots, he installed a train for children to ride that went from the restaurant to the area where the motel now stands, and even had a miniature wild animal park for two years. The park was discontinued in 1970 to make way for the addition of a Danish style motel in 1970.
