The staff is incredibly welcoming and always there to help out direct you to the right place and offer some cool facts about the animals.

They've got a nice variety of farm animals within great, big enclosures - all look very well cared for, healthy and happy, and seem to love being petted.

Here little kids can learn about the importance and value of animals and the environment, come up close with lots of really cute pony, sheep, cockatiels, chicken, ducks, donkeys, llamas, and the biggest pig I’ve ever seen, some foxes hanging around and playful squirrels not afraid to come right up following you from the surrounding tiny fences.

You can also buy some food to give to the animals, which is always great fun for children!

And do not worry, the farm has lots of hand washing stations!

The farm is selling animal food, and if you are hungry or thirsty, there's a nice cafe is offering a very good range of food, which is amazing value for money and great quality.

You can either take a packed lunch or can enjoy a delicious meal (inside the coffee shop or a picnic area with wooden benches and plenty of space) offering a lovely selection of food and drinks, indulge your senses with a countryside smell like, and you’ll definitely be back again.

Highly recommend it for a day out! It's right next to the Mudchute and Crossharbour DLR stations, Asda in Docklands, and can be accessed coming either from Canary Wharf or the Foot Tunnel that goes under the Thames all the way from Cutty Sark, Greenwich.

A great place when one could become nostalgic recalling lovely memories of grand-parents having farms with all kinds of animals and birds, home-cooked food, and a lot of green space to walk and play around.
