Enjoy connecting with our animals
You can take a walk around our outdoor area to get up close and personal with a wide selection of animals. Outdoors we have Rheas, Donkeys, Geese, Prarie Dogs, Goats, Hens, Peacock and Alpaco. And don't forget the pigs and piglets in our pig pens!
It's only £1 per adult, and 50 per child including a free bag of feed for the children.
Alpaca is a domesticated species of South American camelid. It resembles a small llama in appearance. Alpacas are considerably smaller than llamas, and unlike llamas, alpacas were not bred to be beasts of burden but were bred and slaughtered specifically for their fiber. Alpaca fiber is used for making knitted and woven items, much as wool is.
Prairie dogs are burrowing rodents native to the grasslands of North America. They are a type of ground squirrel. On average, these stout-bodied rodents will grow to be between 30–40 cm long, including the short tail and weigh between 0.5–1.5 Kg. They are found in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Highly social, prairie dogs live in large colonies or "towns". Prairie dogs employ a complex form of communication that involves barks and rhythmic chirps.
We have our herd of Toggenburg goats - it's a family herd and a tight nit little clan. They're not so keen on the cold weather at the moment brrrr!! The Toggenburg is named after the region in Switzerland where the breed originated, the Toggenburg valley. Toggenburgs are medium in size, moderate in production, and have relatively low butterfat content (2-3%) in their milk.
Rheas are large, flightless birds with gray-brown plumage, long legs and long necks, similar to an ostrich. Males can reach 1.50 m, and weigh up to 40 kg. Their wings are large for a flightless bird and are spread while running, to act like sails. Unlike most birds, rheas have only three toes.
Our ponds will give you a day to remember.
