Meet the Animals

At the very core of Barleylands is the farm life, we are home to traditional farm animals including goats, sheep, chickens and cows, including some rare breeds, as well as an alpaca called hornbeam, we also have guinea pigs, rabbits, birds of prey, reptiles and exotic mammals.

Keep an eye out for our baby animals throughout the year and our interactive seasonal events, including lambing live, bottle feeding our calves and meeting newly hatched chicks and ducklings. We also have regular birds of prey demonstrations and a chance to get up close to some of the creepy critters that call Barleylands home.

Every day, whatever the weather, we offer various animal-based activities supervised by the livestock team. These are fun, educational and where possible, hands-on. Check out our daily timetable.
