|About The Farm Animals|
Farm animals are the beating heart of any city farm, and we are no exception. It took until 2005 (we arrived on site in 1998!) for the first animals to arrive. By early 2005 we had completed the animal house as a shell and later in the summer we had also managed to employ Chris Jones as our first Animal Keeper.

It didn’t take long for the sounds and smells of a real farm to merge into the daily life of the Farm. With the arrival of Rocky, our emblematic Light Sussex Cockerel, who’s still ruling the roost to this day, and Fluffy, our leader of the ducks (she’s an Silver apple yard) and hatched from an egg by pupils at neighbouring Cadle Primary school, we were a real, working city farm.
Spring 2006 saw the birth of our first lambs, Lotty (Chris is funded through the Big Lottery!), Leticia and Larry. They are Llanwenogs, a rare Welsh breed, and as well as captivating visitors they have become the media stars of the Farm. They have featured on BBC Wales evening news, various publications and in November 2007 Lotty briefly joined the world of media ‘A’ listers. Her skill at opening the latch on the sheep pen in the animal house with her mouth gained headlines like “The Great Ewedini” and “Lock, flock and two two bales of hay”, as well as countless blogs of the CCTV footage of her being caught in action. We prefer the headline “It could be Ewe” .
In Spring 2012, Cornflower our rare Welsh pig gave birth to the three little pigs - Woodina, Srawberry and Briquette.
We now keep pigs, sheep, ducks, chickens and two doves!
Why we keep farm animals?
We adhere to a strict animal welfare policy to ensure that our animals are kept safely and comfortably in line with the Farm’s aim to…
”provide its animals with the highest standards of humane care.”
We also seek to promote rare breed farm animals, and especially Welsh rare-breeds. This is in an effort to preserve both animal biodiversity and Welsh cultural heritage.
But we are a working farm and as a working farm we seek to educate visitors on where their food comes from, including meat and eggs. As such our breeding and stocking policy is to provide food for the plate as well as increased awareness of the issues surrounding food production.
We make every effort to feed our animals on locally produced, organic and GM free feed.
