The community farm was free to enter and was manned by a team of volunteers. We found the staff to be approachable and one explained that the farm didn't have as many animals as it once did because of the impact of the pandemic. On the day we visited the farm was quiet but there were a number of animals to see including sheep and goats. The farm had lots of outside space, was well maintained with clean animal enclosures and there was a cafe which was closed due to these pandemic We would recommend a visit to support local community initiatives.

Visited today, found many volunteers, but none that welcomed or even spoke to us. The place was very depressing, really not well kept and had very few animals.

Visited a few months ago for their regular produce fair and had a lovely time wandering around the stalls and visiting the animals. The chickens looked a bit unhappy and overcrowded on the day (I hope they were ok!) because they had all been moved into 1 pen for the fair, but all the other animals had loads of room to roam around and seemed very content, which was nice to see. We also enjoyed the educational signs around the farm showing what the animals and plants were, how to compost properly, etc. A nice little afternoon out.

Lovely little community farm. Our son did volunteer work there in the summer and loved it. Great to bring the kids too to meet the animals. Produce is sold on site and parking available.

Living near(ish) we had never visited before. We had a lovely morning, took our own picnic but there is limited snacks available to buy including made on site lollies and tea and coffee (very good prices)
Some animals to see, a nature trail and a fab mud kitchen play area, a space to take some outdoor games as well.
There were some nature find sheets as well which looked fun.
We will definitely visit again to support this local community run by volunteers on a donation basis.
Open Tuesday Thursday Saturday 10-4

I visited this farm as I had never been here and was surprised to learn that it has been there for 20 years!
There was a Black Sow and 6 piglets which were so cute, also sheep, chickens, geese, bees, donkeys, it is great for children and adults alike and is run purely by volunteers who were wonderful, so so helpful and inspiring.
There is a small cafe which sell cakes biscuits tea coffee and cold drinks, a tea or coffee is only £1.
They grow veg, fruit, and sell fresh eggs daily.
It is free to enter (yes totally free to enter) but you can make a donation through various boxes around the entrance.
If you haven't already been there put it on your list for this summer.

I visited for the first time last week with my nine-year-old daughter, who loves animals. We had a super time meeting the new baby piglets, and one of the staff let her hold a baby chick as well. Pigs, sheep, ducks, geese and a super little eco garden which was perfect for pond-dipping. A hidden gem, just off the main road, but like a different world. Animals well looked-after and staff were friendly and helpful. The café wasn't open, which was the only downside, but there is a lovely area where you can picnic. Hopefully the café will be open next time. Please support this lovely place!

A typical wet half term thinking of somewhere to take the grandchildren,so we popped into the community farm.the grandchildren were excited to see the ducks as we entered and there was the plumpest turkey,sad to say I did think he would make a lovely Xmas dinner.the grandchildren had the opportunity to help herd the sheep and lambs which they thought was great.During the walk they also saw a pig and more sheep.it was a great opportunity to explain to them about growing fruit and vegetables and composting due to the areas set out.there is a little cafe which is reasonable and you are able to give a little donation for the farm.all the volunteers were helpful and obviously love their involvement.they have had the threat of closure which would be a real shame to the community.
