Your kids will like the chance to get close to--and frequently pet--a variety of farm animals. There's also a nice display of crop plants, and a small natural garden feature. And all to benefit a charity that works with developmentally disabled kids.

My kids live visiting the farm. They don't have the longest attention spans so it's great to be able to move quickly from playground to animals to gardens to nature garden and we often do more than one circuit.

This was a cute little city farm, you can walk around it quite quickly. There was fun curly haired we hadn't seen before and many little piglets. However we felt like some of the animals could have used a bit more space and perhaps kept...More

Thank you for your review, and its great that you liked our curly haired pigs. They have become quite a feature recently. We're sorry that you thought our animals needed more space. Work hard to ensure animals are given the most appropriate space for their...More

Lovely wee selection of animals, but the enclosures could be doing with being made a bit bigger, especially for all of the varieties of pigs, it just didn't seem like they had that much room to move about, made us a bit sad:( There is...More

Thanks for your review Keri, and glad to you enjoyed our selection of animals. We admit the play park is designed for smaller children due to the fact they are the largest age group, but we do run programmes through out the year for older...More

This little farm is good considering you only pay a donation. Don't expect to be there all day but certainly enough to pass a hour or so. If your kids are over the age of 7/8 I would look for alternatives but for the younger...More
