Stonebridge City Farm

On what turned out to be a surprisingly sunny day in October we headed out to Stonebridge City Farm which, as the name suggests, is right in the heart of Nottingham City. The barn was erected in 1980 and the first animals to be housed there were 2 goats, but it is now home to a range of animals from chickens to cows and horses, as well as gardens and a small nature trial.

Apparently when I was very young, most likely around the time it first opened, my parents brought me to the farm, but I have no recollection of this. It was really nice however to wander around and to have the chance of getting very close to the animals. Hands down our favourite were the Angora Goats – it’s either Timmy or Barry below!

But I also really liked the beautiful colouring of Sally, the Golden Guernsey Goat.

And of course you can’t really miss the  newest additions to the farm – 2 kunekune pigs called Pepper and Primrose.

As well as two lovely ponies,

inside the barn are also a host of guinea pigs and rabbits, some of which are for sale.

The gardens are also very nice and clearly well looked after,

with plenty of produce on sale in the shop – we bought some honey made from the Farm’s own hive – and also gave a donation as we left.

The Farm is free to enter but they do heavily rely on donations to keep going. It’s a really nice place to visit and well deserving of such a donation.
