Overview

Fancys Farm is free to enter and is open every day of the year except Christmas Day from 10am to 5pm. Most of our wide variety of animals are super friendly and love to be petted. Feed is available in the main building at £1 per cup. We have a children's play room and outside toys which are all donated as we can't afford to buy them. All of our animals receive the best care possible but some are rescued and may not look at their best as they are recovering from previous poor care. All of our friendly staff are happy to help and answer any questions that you may have, if you would like a free tour please ask for Jon. Our shop sells a variety of meat and eggs produced on the farm along with hot and cold food and drinks. Please enjoy your visit.

Had a wander around on a damp morning. Plenty to keep the smaller ones occupied. The goats are great fun and get up to all sorts of antics. Worth a visit if your in the area.

We passed the farm whilst walking round the island and thought it seemed really nice - we came in to feed the geese and ducks it was a great start to the day.

Fancy farm is an amazing place for young children as it has a small play park and a ball pit inside. Inside you can buy food to feed the animals.

Great place to visit for a couple of hours, the kids get to feed the animals which are in most part friendly and like to be fussed. As the Farm is free, donations are welcome or alternatively you can buy a bag of animal food...More

Fancy’s farm is along a wonderful windy road and wallah, wallabies, ducks, hairy piglets and so much more. Goats that are greedy, cats that are sleepy; by far and a away a visit not to be missed.
