Animals

at South Angle Farm Park

Explore the animals

We are all about our animals at South Angle Farm Park and have animal handling and opportunities for animal feeding every day.

As well as our traditional farm animals including lambs and chicks (springtime) pigs, goats, alpacas and horses we have our poultry, bunnies, guinea pigs and our popular reptile room.

Most of the animals that live here are rescue or rehomed and we pride ourselves on giving animals a good home where they can be part of an exciting education experience for everyone.

You know you're on a farm when you reach our main farmyards and woodland pens. With an oink, baaaa, blaaa, cluck, quack and honk, all the animals will shout “Hello!”

"Well what can I say other than my family loved it! All animals are well cared for & as soon as water bottles went empty they were filled up straight away! Friendly staff and David the reptile man even did sign language which blew us away - as not many people go to that level in places & he had great charisma! Very natural, rustic farm which we loved how simple it was but it just worked great!"

"This is an outstanding farm, perfect for my daughter! The team is great and knowledgeable and there's plenty for children to be involved in. A particular highlight is the reptile house and the shows that go with it. My daughter is coming up for 3 but was only too keen to try and feed the chameleon and to hold a snake. Would absolutely recommend going!"

"A fantastic day out with my two children (age 6 and 7) thank you all so much for being so friendly and willing to answer all the questions that we had. The animals were also incredibly calm and friendly. We absolutely loved it!"

"Have been visiting for last four years. Staff are really friendly and make loads of effort for various themed events. Farm is small but great for under 8s to explore. Plenty of opportunities to engage with the animals."
