Meet the Animals



We keep a number of local heritage breeds of farm livestock here at Mary Arden's Farm, many which are similar in type to those that Shakespeare would have known.

So why not make friends with the Bagot and Golden Guernsey goats as well as other rare-breed animals including English Longhorn cattle, Cotswold sheep and our woolly Mangalitza pigs.

Meet the owls, hawks and falcons as we demonstrate the age-old art of falconry, a popular Tudor pastime and often featured in Shakespeare's plays (weekends and school holidays).

Falconry Half day Experiences

Spend a morning or afternoon with our Falconer, flying Owls and Harris Hawks and learning about how they were used by the Tudors for hunting.

These half day experiences are limited to 5 people so that you have the chance to spend time actually flying the birds yourself.

This is a fantastic experience for groups of family/friends, so contact us today to discuss your group needs.
