Gorse Hill City Farm is home to lots of traditional farm animals.
Although we are a city farm we are very lucky to have a fairly large plot of land. This means that unlike other city farms that have been restricted by their surroundings, Gorse Hill City Farm feels positively sprawling. This has allowed us to home a huge number of animals for you to meet. We have over 100 animals on site and most of them love to be fed!
Our cows are usually found grazing in the bigger fields at the farm.
We have a variety of rare breed and native sheep on the farm.
Middle white pigs are a docile breed and ideal for us to have on the farm for you to visit. They are also a rare breed.
Our rare breed Golden Guernsey goats are very gentle and very popular with our visitors. We also have Pygmy goats.
You can find our donkeys Oatey and May often grazing and playing together in the fields.
Zac and Zoe are miniature shetlands. Criggy is a standard Shetland.
We have different breeds of domestic rabbits in the small animal area
You can find our Guinea pigs in the small animal area.
We have cold water goldfish.

When you visit you will want to get as close to our animals as possible and the best way to do this is with the animal feed we provide. You can purchase feed for just 75p per bag. This way you're guaranteed to get up close our animals. Another way to get close to our fluffy and feathered friends is to book a ‘Meet the Small Animal Session’. These are a great way to meet and learn about the smaller residents of the farm.
