Fun for all the family at Glendeer

A visit to Glendeer Pet Farm is a fun, interactive experience for all the family where feeding, holding and petting the many animals on site is actively encouraged.

With a host of cute furry friends such as chicks, deer, pigs, llamas, alpaca, emu, goats, donkeys, sheep, cows and even two cheeky monkeys, not to mention the new babies that are arriving every day, including kid goats, a belted Galloway calf, rabbits and lambs, Glendeer is a paradise for animals lovers of all ages!

After the children have taken their turns at feeding, holding and petting the animals they can play on the slide, swings, seesaws and very popular zipline, while adults can enjoy a well-earned break over fresh coffee/tea and home-made treats.

At the start of their visit to Glendeer, each child gets a bag of food to feed the animals as they make their way around the six acre farm, and there are plenty of picnic benches where families can relax and enjoy a homemade picnic if they wish. There is also an unspoiled nature walk where the little ones might even spot some fairies!

Glendeer has amenities for kids of all ages from the maze and obstacle course for the older kids to the ball pool and soft play toddler area for the small ones. The large animal barn and indoor play area makes the farm suitable for all weather conditions.
