As a working farm we have lots of friendly and sociable animals for you to visit. During a visit you can usually spot our three rare breed Dexter cows, pigs, sheep, goats, ponies, rabbits, chickens and ducks, although on occasions our animals do move around to other farms, as part of breeding programmes.
Following the highest welfare standards, some of our animals are bred for their meat, which is available to buy from our farm shop and is used in some dishes in our café. We hope by being an open access farm we can educate people about where food comes from and enable them to make informed decisions about where and how to buy meat, if at all.
Please look after our animals by:
- not feeding the animals with food other than the animal food we sell
- keeping dogs on a lead
- not scaring or chasing the animals
Our animal breeds include, Dexter cattle, Soay sheep, Wiltshire Horn sheep, Pgymy goats, Mangalitsa pigs, Gloucester Old Spot pigs, Shetland ponies and a large free range flock of chickens that include Speckled Light Sussex, Orpington, Cream Legbar, Welsummer and Rhode Island Red plus rescued x battery chickens. Our ducks include, Aylesbury, Khaki Campbell and Indian Runner Cross, Welsh Harlequin and a Call duck.
