In september, we were invited to The Saturday Show on Channel 5! So, we called up Gida - our resident TV personality - and sent her off to London with some rabbits! If you missed it, check out the episode on 'Catch up My5' !
The Starlight Foundation are a very special charity who brightens the lives of terminally ill children by granting them their wishes! The charity also provide fun and entertainment to every childrens ward and hospice throughout the UK.
How cute are these little creatures?! Meet our new Dumbo rats - Diamond and Sapphire! They are only a few weeks old and love lots of fuss! They can often be found sitting on Belmont Staff' Abbey and James' shoulders when they are working around the farm, if you see them be sure to say hello!
We are open every day over half term from 9.00am - 6.00pm with lots to look forward to when you visit us!
We have hourly tractor rides, sheep walking, petting sessions and lots of new arrivals to meet at the farm this half term!
Our petting sessions will be held with our gorgeous bunnies and guinea pigs along with some new faces such as the newly hatched chicks and fuzzy ducklings. Come and join in our **FREE** petting sessions everyday at 10.30am, 12.30pm,1.30pm, 3.30pm & 4.30pm.
Come and see our lambs being fed with the bottle before they get too big! Lilly, Billy and their friends are fed by bottle everyday at 11.30am, 2.30pm and 5.00pm. Come and watch them being fed then give them a big cuddle after!
Embrace the beauty of the rare London countryside on our hourly tractor ride (first at 10.00am, last at 4.00pm) and watch our animals peacefully graze in their fields!
Take the oppertunity this half term to come and meet the new faces at the farm! As well as new members of staff, we have some new animals around the farm too! We are proud to introduce our new Eurasion eagle owl - 'Claude', our cute newly hatched fuzzy ducklings and soft chicks!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THIS HALF TERM!
Good news! We are open throughout Easter including bank holidays, and have lots of new arrivals for you to meet including baby chicks and ducklings, new born lambs (who are bottle fed at 11:30 and 2:30 every day!), bunnies and guinea pigs in our petting sessions, and of course tractor rides around our beautiful valley. Whilst you are here, don't forget to visit our Waffle Cafe and try our home made waffles and our latest edition of locally produced Beechdean Jersey ice cream!
We are also holding an Easter egg hunt here at the farm on Sunday the 27th of March! It will be running all day and is free of charge! Ask at reception as you arrive to get started!
Come and see our NEW ARRIVALS! We have started lambing here at the farm and James our shepherd has been very busy keeping an eye on our early Lambing flock of Kerry Hill sheep! Come and see them in the show area every day!
PLEASE BE AWARE: We have switched to our WINTER CLOSING TIMES now, so the farm is open from 9-5. The last entry is at 3:45pm, but please note that some of our bigger animals need to be put to bed in the fields, so may be taken down at 3:30pm to avoid walking in the valley in the dark. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes, but encourage you to go and say hello to them first whilst you are visiting us!

A final solution has not yet been reached but we are hopeful that common sense will prevail.
