Walby Farm Park is an open farm with a unique approach. Our work with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust has marked us out previously as a conservation Farm Park, while our 450 acre commercial mixed farm provides both a stunning setting and a fantastic learning environment. We place our animals at the heart of everything we do and invite you to meet, groom, handle and enjoy our farmyard favourites…and some more unusual additions!

As you play outside you will be surrounded by our Animal Paddocks while the Animal Barn offers an opportunity to get even closer. And in our demonstration area you might even get the chance for a cuddle with one or two of our cuties, the rabbits and the guinea pigs. We also run regular activities throughout the day including sheep / goat racing, the ferret show, pony grooming, and seasonal feeding sessions with the lambs (or the goats once the lambs get big enough to pinch the bottle!).

Seasonal tractor and trailer rides allow you to get up close to our resident Red Deer and also to learn more about the stewardship of our family farm.

We love every one of our animals but which ones will become your favourites? Use the sections above to find out more about them all – including their secret habits and some fast facts that you can use to impress your friends!
