The 24 acre Meanwood Valley Urban Farm has a variety of farm animals including alpacas, goats, sheep, pigs, hens, donkeys, and ducks. There are woodland walks, and a longer walk through our 5 acre coppice, where a variety of wildlife can be seen if you are very quiet.There is a small playground for children under 12 and you may want to take a break at the independently run Hungry Hedgehog Cafe which offers vegetarian options and facilities for warming baby food.We have our own car park and there is a Farm Shop with toys, gifts, plants and produce grown on the farm and fresh farm eggs.
