During the Easter holidays our twin girls decided that they’d like to go to a farm. I’ve previously written about some of the farms we’ve visited such as Greenmeadow Farm, Cefn Mably, Warren Mill and Walnut Tree Farm. You can read my post, Seven Farms in and around Cardiff that you must visit for more information about these farms or simply use the search bar on the left to search for a farm review.
One farm that I’ve heard good things about, but that we hadn’t yet visited is Amelia Trust Farm. However, our day didn’t start out at Amelia Trust Farm. We first went to Warren Mill farm, but my husband wasn’t overly impressed with it, and to be honest since the last time I visited, I feel like it’s gone down hill. The toilets look like they’ve never been cleaned. The rabbits had no fresh hay. There was a sheep limping around freely with a pretty badly injured leg, every single ride on toy or bike was broken and it cost us £15 to get in! After less than an hour we decided to head over to Amelia Trust Farm which was just a short drive away.
Amelia Trust Farm is in Barry. The amazing thing about it is that it’s a registered charity. They have a long and proud of history of providing therapeutic support to disadvantaged and vulnerable people in a Care Farm setting.
The car park was big enough for plenty of cars, and we were greeted by a friendly lady who advised it was £5 for a family ticket. I had to double check as it just seemed so cheap compared to where we’d just been, but you read it right. £5 for a family ticket! That’s amazing value!
As soon as we entered Amelia Trust Farm we saw a large green area with park, tea cup ride and hook-a-duck stall. There were picnic benches dotted around filled with families and the overall vision that greeted us was very pleasant.
The farm is clean and tidy. The layout is easy to follow and most importantly all of the animals looked well cared for.
As we arrived around lunch time we decided to sit down in this area and have our picnic. Our seven year old twin girls that ran off to play on the play equipment.
We then wandered around the animals. There were baby lambs, donkeys, rabbits, chickens, alpacas, pigs, goats and more.
We then decided to walk around the nature trail. It was a lot bigger than we thought it would be and it was wonderful. Our girls really enjoyed exploring the nature trail. There was a fitness trail which they really enjoyed, as well as monkey bars, a bridge, a pond and a beautiful memorial garden.
Our girls even helped to build a shelter by adding some sticks to the half built structure.
We had such a wonderful time at Amelia Trust Farm and I would highly recommend it.
