Shepherds Place Farm is a great day out for all the family. If you would like to get up close and personal with many farmyard favourites, this is the place to do it.
As a fun, humble, and educational petting farm the goal is introducing you and your family to a wide variety of animals from home and over seas. In addition to chickens, turkeys, ducks, Tamworth, British Saddleback and Gloucester Old Spot pigs and other farmyard animals there are rare breeds and animals such as the giant tortoise, wallabies, alpacas and Llamas.
Farm owner, Ted Phillips, said: “Visitors can have a great experience here. We have animals such as deer, emus, dwarf pygmy goats and South American rheas. We also have the guinea pig village and the meerkat experience, which children and adults alike enjoy.”
He added: “We have just fitted out a £30,000 ice cream parlour and 1950s American diner, which adds to the experience.
“We have a new lovely on-site cafe with great low prices (as we understand you may have a lot of hungry mouths to feed) serving hot and cold foods, drinks and all manner of snacks and sweets to feed every hungry mouth. Also we also have a picnic area if you want to bring your own picnic.”
Children can enjoy the play areas, take a dive into the sandpit and both children and adults can play on the super sized bouncy castles on site.
Learn all about the life cycle of eggs in the eggcellent incubator room and get to hold real life chicks.
Take a walk into the guinea pig village where you will learn how to hold and care for guinea pigs and then get to hold one.
Opening Times for the farm are 10am to 5pm every day (Excluding Christmas) and every bank holiday.
To claim your free hot drink fill in the coupon on this page, cut it out and present it to staff at the cafe. The offer is open from Thursday, August 20 to Wednesday, August 26.
