Nice place to visit with young children. Food for animals for sale in machines. £1. Larger animals are sometimes on show in the park opposite. Busy at weekends and holidays. Lovely cafe on site but very slow service. Toilets and souvenir shop.

A charming little city farm, just the right size. A good little variety of animals, the goats are especially charming.

A nice place to end the day with kids. Despite it being small, it's objective is for kids to get to see and interact with some animals. Good points: - Its free but donations are welcome - Feeding the Llamas and Goats are the highlight....More

I really liked this mini-farm. The animals are nice and the farm co-operates with schools to give kids an opportunity to grow up chicks. Also, you can ride a horse, if you want. If you want to get a taste of living on a farm,...More
