Meet the Animals

At the very core of Barleylands is farm life and we are home to traditional farm animals including goats, sheep, chickens and ponies, including some rare breeds, as well as llamas, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds of prey and exotics. As well as meeting them, many also love to be fed by visitors.

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

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.
