Over thirty different kinds of animals call Belmont Farm their home. As you walk around the grounds, there are so many furry friends to see. There is a small herd of three gorgeous Jersey cows, as well as being known for producing the creamiest milk of all these cows are also famous for being extremely friendly and love being stroked. The two Shetland ponies stationed in the Polytunnel also love being pampered and cuddled by visitors. Don’t forget to say hello to the alpacas and sheep on site for some soft and cuddly hugs.

Children will love to interact with the animals at Belmont Farm. Every day at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm all the residents at this city farm are brought out as a mini petting zoo for the public to enjoy.

A highlight of Belmont Farm would be the Tractor Trailer Ride. Running hourly (except in winter when it runs once a day at 12.30), visitors can hop on the trailer and get a round trip in the grounds of the farm. Pass through the rolling fields and see the reindeer grazing, the duck pond is an amazing natural site filled with activity and cute birds and if you’re lucky you may pass by a training session with the horses at the sand school. The round trip takes about 15 minutes. It is recommended that visitors book their time slot in advance as places tend to fill up quickly.
