There are many petting zoos and farms to see up and down the country, but Foel Farm is one of our favourites, and somewhere we’ve been to a couple of times now.
It’s not a really big place, but there’s plenty for the kids to enjoy.
Here are some of the things you can do there:
- Depending on time of year, bottle feeding of lambs or calfs.
- Feeding pigs and chickens.
- Hold guinea pigs or rabbits.
- Ride a trailer pulled by a tractor to visit the field with the old shire horse.
- Ride a trailer pulled by a quad bike (very bumpy, but fun!).
- Pony rides.
- Bounce on a giant inflatable pillow.
There’s also a cafe, picnic area, and a chocolate shop.
So what did the kids think?
Ours like Foel Farm, and lots of other children and families were having fun there too.
It’s perhaps not a place for teenagers (unless they are interested in animals of course).
Here’s a report from one of our daughters…
Foel Farm in Anglesey is a great day out. You can meet touch and feed the animals. There are rides add to the fun.
As you come in you can buy some feed for the animals. In spring and early summer you can feed the lambs and calves. It opens on March 20th to October 31st 10:30am to 5:30pm. If you want you can hold the rabbits and guinea pigs. They where friendly with all children. The guinne pigs where good for smaller children. There are a selection of different animals to feed and stroke.
The bouncy pillow is my favourite thing there. We spent 45 minutes but in between we stopped and a had lunch. There are picnic benches around it and a cafe near by. There is a tractor ride which takes you up into the hill to see the horse and also a bumpy quad bike ride around the farm. It is fun to go on.
If your staying in Anglesey or North Wales with small kids then we can recommend Foel Farm Park.
Near by is the Anglesey Sea Zoo, so you can combine the day with seeing what is both above and below the water in this part of Anglesey.
What a mouthful!
Also down the road is the longest place name in the world: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch!
Fortunately Foel Farm have recorded it so you can hear how to pronounce it. Listen to it here … then try and repeat it!

Foel Farm opposite Caernarfon, on the other side of the Menai Straits. If you are coming from the main land on the A55, it is the first exit off when you get to Anglesey and then follow the brown signs. When you get to the road by the Menai Straits it is quite narrow but plenty of passing places.
