A unique and quirky animal experience that's frankly unforgettable.

Our farm is not just home to our lovely alpaca herd. Hiding away within the ruins of a historic walled garden are our charming herd of Dexter cattle, the smallest cows in Europe.


Join us for a meet and greet with the cutest cows you can hope to meet! Dexter cows are not only small, but they're also some of the calmest and most friendly cattle on the planet. They will come when called, eat from your hand and even play games. Once you've tried cow petting and cuddling with our Dexters, you'll love them as much as we do. 

On arrival at our farm in Shropshire, you will join us in The Old Barn, our specially converted indoor space, where your experience will begin with a quick health and safety briefing. Then, we will walk across the courtyard to the perimeter of the ruined Walled Garden.

We will enter the viewing area by the main gate, where you will enjoy watching the cows running across the field to greet you. After an introduction to them, you will enjoy petting them and bucket or hand feeding them behind the safety of the fence. 

You'll love their doleful, cute faces and be delighted with their friendly and gentle nature. You may even get a moo or two!

Booking Terms and Conditions

  1. Please note that this is an outdoor experience on farm tracks. These tracks are not smoothly tarmacked and may be uneven or muddy. As a result, our experiences are not accessible for wheelchair users or pushchairs.

  2. We reserve the right to refuse you participation of the experience if we feel it is a risk to your own safety. In this instance no refund will be given.

  3. While Dexter cows are generally calm, reserved creatures, they are still wild animals and can therefore be unpredictable. We have done our best to minimise the risks of accidents but unfortunately we can never completely eliminate this risk. Prior to the experience we will brief you on our health and safety procedures and it is your responsibility to follow them at all times. We cannot accept responsibility for any accidents or injuries that occur whilst you are on our premises.

  4. Bookings can be made online, via email or by phone. Online bookings or bookings via email must be made 48 hours in advance but please feel free to call us within 48 hours for last minute availability.

  5. Please be aware before you book your experience that we cannot offer refunds if you change your mind. We will try to re-book you at a later date if there is a genuine reason for not attending, at our discretion, but during busy holiday periods this may not be possible. A rebooking fee of £15 will apply.

  6. We do not issue refunds due to inclement weather. We do run experiences in the rain so please be prepared to bring some wellies and wet weather gear with you. Although we wish it were not so, the weather is not within our control.

  7. If we have to cancel for any reason you will either be offered a later date or a refund.

  8. Please ensure you arrive 5 minutes prior to your allotted start time to allow for you to be booked in. In order to ensure our experiences run to schedule, we are unable to accommodate late arrivals and a refund will not be given.

  9. If you have underlying health conditions then it is your responsibility to assess whether you are fit to undertake the experience. If in doubt please consult a medical professional prior to the experience.

  10. Children remain the responsibility of the supervising adult at all times whilst on site. Please ensure they are capable of completing the experience they are booked for and ensure they remain under your control at all times.

  11. Although our alpacas are clean animals we would strongly advise washing hands prior to eating food and leaving the site.

  12. We reserve the right to refuse your participation if we feel you are under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs.

  13. We cannot be held responsible for any allergy issues that occur due to not having been informed of them by you on booking.
