Great time with our grandchild she's only little but loved it. They only ask for a small donation of £2 and 50p to buy food to feed animals. Well worth a visit

We have been to this excellent farm once before some years ago and being "lent" our 3 year old granddaughter again we decided to take her there.
The place is beginning to expand again with the imminent building of a stable for donkeys.The little furry critters were a bit as were the goats and lambs. There is a cafe to retreat to in case of need!
Highly reccommended.

Lovely little farm, animals are really well looked after.

It’s free to get into and has a little cafe to get lunch. You can also buy some grain to feed the animals which is a lot of fun and the kids love it!

Thanks for taking the time to post a review, and we're glad you enjoyed your visit. The Livestock staff and their volunteers work very hard to make sure the animals are so well looked after. The Farm is indeed free to enter - but we rely on donations to keep running and cover the costs of looking after the animals.

Had such a great experience at this farm with my boyfriend, there is such a variety of animals and it's all for free. Would definitely recommend for children, but also a great experience for adults too, we certainly had a lot of fun!

Hi Nicole
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and we're delighted you all had a great time. We're a charity and you right that we're "free" in that we don't make an entrance charge. It does, however, cost over half a million pounds each year to run the Farm and we rely on the generosity of our visitors and funders to keep going. If all our visitors make the suggested £2 per person suggested donation - we'll be here forever to continue providing the great experience you enjoyed. We hope to see you again.

This place is really a great day out for small kids - well i say day out, you couldn't spend all day here.

The farm has a good selection of farm animals, many of which you can feed. Annoyingly you need a 50p piece for the feed for the goats, sheep, cows etc and there isn't a change machine.

There are lots of smaller animals to see and you can pet the ferrets and rabbits. There's also a chance to go on a pony ride, although this is just once round a small paddock.

The cafe serves a selection of food plus there's a small park and gardens. If it's sunny, you can easily spend a good couple of hours there.

There's a suggested donation of £2 per person on entry.

Hi Natasha
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and we're delighted you had a good time. We don't have a change machine (they're really expensive and we can't afford one) but we do make sure we can supply 50p coins from the cafe when its open, so I hope you were able to get some. Thank you for mentioning the suggested donation - if everyone donated the £2 we ask for, we'd be in a much more secure position. For those looking to spend a whole day in the area, we have the lovely Morden Hall Park just next door, which provides more activities and facilities, and a children's theatre (The Colour House) nearby at Merton Abbey Mills.
