Farm Animals

Cow

Jersey Cow

At Noah’s Ark, we have a range of different breeds of cow including the Jersey, Ankole and Highland.

You can meet our Jersey Cow Jessie in the animal show pens. She also often gets involved in the daily animal show.

Donkey

The donkey is related to the horse and zebra, all of which belong to the same family ‘Equus’.

Did you know you can meet some of our Donkeys in the animal show pens.

Chicken

There are more chickens in the world than any other bird. Chickens are reared for their eggs, as well as their meat. 

You can meet our Chickens in the Bird Walk-through (unfortunately this exhibit is temporarily closed due to the outbreak of Avian Influenza in the UK).

Chicken feed is available to buy in the Gift shop.

During the Spring you can also find our little chicks in the Hatchery and maybe even get a cuddle during animal handling in the Animal Village.

 

Goat

We have Boer and Angora goats here at the zoo. Goats are closely related to sheep which is why they look so similar. Like sheep, goats are bred for milk, meat and wool.

You can buy animal food for £1 from the Gift Shop to feed our goats.

Goose

The female Goose is usually referred to as a goose and the male is called a gander. Young geese are called goslings. A group of geese is called a gaggle!

 

You can find our Geese in the Bird Walk-through (unfortunately this exhibit is temporarily closed due to an out-break of avian influenza in the UK). 

Purchase a bag of bird feed from our gift shop to get up close to these beautiful birds!

 

Llama

Llamas are very sociable animals and enjoy the companionship of their own kind. They are very intelligent and can be trained to pull carts and carry packs.

Did you know you can buy animal food for £1 from the Gift Shop to feed our Llamas.

Pig

Tamworth Pig

Check out our Pig Sty to meet our Tamworth Pigs. You might get lucky, we often have a litter of baby piglets snuffling around. 

Sheep

At Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm we have Texel, Jacob and Dorset sheep which you can meet up-close in the animal show pens.

During lambing season we often have a number of orphaned lambs which we hand rear. We invite visitors to bottle feed the lambs after the Animal Show, which takes place every day in the Ark Arena.

Shetland Pony

The Shetland pony is known for its petite stature and is amongst the smallest breeds of horse in the world. You can meet our Shetland Ponies in the animal show pens.

Alpaca

They are social animals that live in herds. These herds are not only composed of other alpacas but also include other species such as llamas, goats and sheep. You can find our Alpaca in the Goat field. 

You can purchase animal food for £1 a bag to feed the Alpaca.
