All Farm visitors MUST book their visit in advance.

Our little Farm was opened in 1980 and is an inner-city oasis providing local families with access to animals that they otherwise might not see. It is a valued community asset in Balsall Heath with visitors who came as children now bringing their own little ones down to see the 50 animals that live on the Farm! 

We provide educational visits for Nurseries, Schools, home-schoolers and other organised groups.

It is free for the community to visit, but as we receive no funding from the local council or national government, please make a donation in the box to help care for the animals and maintain the site.
