This Farm has been sold. At present it is not clear whether the potential new Owners ( the Purchase has not yet reached conclusion) will continue with the Farm/ Shop/ Restaurant scenario. We certainly hope so but will have to wait and see what transpires....More

Visited last year and quite enjoyed it although animals very much reduced due to, I understand, not able to have a zoo license. Place closed now and up or sale. Visit their website and all you get is 'Closed'.

Seems to be going down hill. Past years this has been the place to be. Lovely food and great for the kids. Now many animals have gone and the food was poor. A real shame, we loved it here.
