Our Animals


Latest arrivals

In mid February, we welcomed a new addition to the farm… we would like to introduce you to Carlos the Llama! When you come to meet Carlos, you will find he is so affectionate and he loves all the attention from visitors. Sadly, Carlos lost his mum just after he was born, which is why he loves everyone giving him lots of fuss.
We have Badger-faced Lambs at the Farm who were born throughout January and February.  Carlos has enjoyed looking after one of the lambs whose mum sadly died, he makes a great parent!
Our Pygmy Goat Kids at the Farm were born throughout March and April. Say hello to Bea and Anna, our very friendly Kids. Watch them bounce around with their boundless energy!
The weather was very challenging for us when the lambs and kids were due but thankfully they are all doing really well now. They would love to see our visitors who give them lots of attention!
Alongside our rabbits at the front of the farmhouse we now have Little Owls, the smallest owls at Rays Farm.

When you arrive at Rays Farm, you will see Rufus, our magnificent Red Deer stag and his herd. Further along the paddocks are our rare breed Badger Face Sheep, Miniature Shetland Ponies named Peanut and Treacle, Dixie the Irish Draught Sports Horse and Beulah, the Dales x Thoroughbred. Not far away will be Millie the Llama and Pablo and Pedro the Alpacas.

Alongside our field of friendly goats live the chickens and George, our Bronze Turkey stag. Daphne and Sophie the Micro pigs thoroughly enjoy their muddy wallow which they enlarge every year!

At the top of the paddocks, Frosty and Mistletoe, our Reindeer, love to stroll over to say ‘Hi’. And don’t forget to wander through the Goat Field, with more than 30 goats to pet and stroke.

Rays Farm is home to a collection of over 25 owls; we have Snowy, Ashy-Faced, Great Grey, European Eagle, Bengal, Tawny, Brown Wood and Barn Owls.

In our Small Animal Barn, you will meet our Guinea Pigs. Amongst our free range chickens and chicks live our latest goat kids.

Pollyanna the Donkey can be found on the farmyard, very near to Carlos the Llama and Bertie the Pygmy Goat (who are double trouble!)

On the Lawn our free-range Rabbits live next to the Ducks and the Geese on the pond. In the Spring, our Bunnies dig deep burrows – watch as they disappear beneath the ground!


Carlos, the very cheeky Llama!
