We have been to this farm a few times. It's a nice little edition to an afternoon at the park. After touching the cows our little ones have previously washed their hands in the horrid toilets. This time the farm have erected a hand wash area near the entrance/exit. Excellent you might think. Not so. The drain under the tap... More

For a freebie it's great, but not much going on, could be more hands on for the little ones. But still, very pleasant

Popped in here with my 8yr old grand son before collecting my family from nearby airport and what a sorry affair. 4 bored bulls(with a sign above the shed saying for sale),1 pig, a few different types of chickens,3 goats and a peahen and peacock. No signage, no information. Went to the glasshouses where yes it was certainly tropically hot... More

Quite a small farm but it ticks the boxes if you want to go and see some animals for 2 hours. It'll be pretty much what you expect, you can go and look at the cows and they'll be there looking back at you. Good stuff. We weren't local and asked the taxi driver to take us to "Wythenshawe Community... More

What a lovely environment & surprise to find such a self sufficient farm, with lots of little people excited; ooing & aarghing. at the animals! Lovely too to see lots of hands on & plenty of young volunteers mucking in. with many jobs. Everyone is so passionate & enthusiaitic. Looking forward to lots of farm related Zippy Zappy creative workshops/events... More

I was very disturbed to see a sow in a farrowing crate when I last visited. It isn't the first time, I am extremely surprised this outlawed practice was on city council property.

A little farm tucked in Wythenshawe Park. If driving to the park there is a pound entry fee during the summer months at weekends. The Farm is located near the main car park, with a handy ice cream van and a burger van is usually present (unfortunately the park tea rooms are now closed). Entry to the farm is free,... More

The farm is a pleasant but small area which is ideal for young children to meet the animals up close. Some of the animals looked a bit ragged, but I would hope that this was merely a coincidence. Another reviewer was concerned by the small pens, particularly for the cattle. Clearly she must have missed the view of a pasture/open... More

This is a good experience for kids who do not get out into the countryside to see farm animals.

Visiting the area so googled local attractions. Came across this free farm and thought it was worth a go. Arrived to hear the noisiest cow and pig I've ever heard - if they had voices they would be saying get me out of here! The farm consisted of two isolated pigs in a very small enclosure (not together) plus one... More
