Our Animals

All around the Farm are examples of the usual farm animals you would expect to see, as well as some less common creatures. Our animals' welfare is of paramount importance to us. They are happy, healthy, very friendly and are looking forward to meeting you.

Cows

We have different breeds for you to spot including Friesian Holstein, Highland and Jersey. Don't miss the mini herd of calves in the cow shed: you have the opportunity to bottle-feed them at 10.30am and 4.00pm any day we're open, if you want to.

Goats

There are always over 100 kid goats on the Farm. The younger ones need to be bottle-fed, while the larger ones eat from plates! Don't miss the Pygmy goats: they are small and cute, and love to play!

Poultry

We have lots of chickens and chicks to see. In our Chick Shed you can discover how chicks develop from eggs through to fully grown chickens. During the Animal Encounter Barn you will get the opportunity to hold the chicks. As well as chickens, we have ducks (sometimes ducklings) and geese. Poultry is for sale to good homes.

Pigs

You will see Kunekune pigs at our farm, which are a small breed of pig originating from New Zealand. They come in a large range of colours - some plain and some spotted. They are very friendly and will be looking forward to meeting you. Look out, as we quite often have a litter of piglets for you to see.

Ponies & Donkeys

We have several ponies and donkeys to meet. They range in breed and size from Pearl the Shire horse to our Shetland called Chesney. They are all very friendly.

Rabbits

We have lots of rabbits and guinea pigs. You can often meet the babies during the Animal Encounter Barn sessions. Kerry Pass is in charge of the rabbit and guinea pig breeding programme - they are available for sale to good homes.

Alpacas

We have a small herd of alpacas who live together in our back field. Our alpacas are very friendly and enjoy meeting new friends.
