Animal Farm, Castleton
Animal Farm is a conservation farm park based just outside the picturesque village of Castleton at the heart of the Peak District National Park. It is located on Buxton Old Road, directly opposite the main car park to the Treak Cliff Cavern.
The Farm, which makes an interesting and enjoyable place to visit, provides a home for British farm animals which face extinction and a wonderful opportunity for you to meet them. The farm provides a suitable environment for these endangered animals to breed and thus increase their chances of surviving the threat of extinction.
Amongst the rarest animals at Animal Farm are Boreray Sheep, there are only 77 females of this species left in the world so it is very threatened. Other Animals include Clydesdale Horses, Soay Sheep, Dexter Cows, Pygmy Goats and Tamworth Pigs. Touching and interacting with the Animals is recommended.
The Farm covers an area of 12 acres and is owned by Sarah Champian.
