The Petting Farm


Meet the Animals on our Farm

If you are planning to take your family out, Reddish Vale Animal Farm is the right place to spend some quality time with your loved ones amidst tranquil countryside in Stockport. With a variety of fun animal activities, you are sure to love it.

We have a variety of baby and adult animals

Whether your children want to hold our baby animals or enjoy the bouncy castle, we have a range of activities to keep them occupied and entertained. The animals on our farm include horse Kylie, cows, calves, sheep, alpacas, a llama, ducks, chickens, goats, pigs, piglets, guinea pigs, rabbits, chicks and ducklings.

After spending the day in the small animal farm, you can browse around the gift shop and take home a souvenir of your time spent at Reddish Vale Farm. Within a five minute walk from the farm is the Reddish Vale Country Park where you have a vast but safe area to walk, run, cycle or ride horses. There is also a butterfly centre, duck pond and a fishing area. Visit our farm or talk to our staff today.
Pony Rides are on every Sunday through the animal farm from 12.30 until 2.30 and are £2 per ride. No booking is required.

School Visits to our Petting Farm

Every school visit will vary slightly according to the topics being covered, but the basic routine is as follows: 
  • A lovely tour around both large and small animals with staff
  • Hand-feed all the large animals, there will be the opportunity to bottle feed lambs or calves 
  • Play with our smaller animals
  • Use the patio area for lunch
  • Burn off excess energy in the adventure play park and small pedal tractor area
  • Receive a selection of children’s worksheets
Our main aim when opening the animal farm was to educate children living in an urban environment to the types of animals that live on a farm. We try to have different breed of each type of farm animal, so that the children can compare and study them.
