Welcome to
Applecast Farm

A friendly, educational, small holding based at Applecast Ecocenter. Helping young people achieve through hands-on learning.

Applecast Farm


Our visitors center, including petting zoo, animal feeding, and educational learning sessions will be opening soon.


During summer we open our doors for special events open to the public, such as our Young Farmer Experience Days, Craft Sessions, Bug Hunts and Storytimes.


We support young people achieve vocational qualifications through placements from select local schools and colleges.

We're open!

We are now open following the COVID lockdown!

We’ve taken measures to ensure our staff and visitors are safe to visit following the COVID Closure. It is finally safe for us to open.

As a large outdoor space it’s the perfect place to get out for the day. We’ve got hand sanitiser all around site that are topped up constantly, our cafe has plenty of outdoor seating, and we’re taking measures on the farm and gift shop to keep everybody safe.

Visit us today! Take a look at our Facebook for the latest information.

Meet Our Animals

Applecast care for lots of different breeds and types of animals. We have a love for rare breeds, and are always looking for new members of the team to come and stay here.

Home Fun

Here are some “play at home” activities from the farm for some fun, animal based, activities to pass the time during the UK Lockdown.

We’ll be updating this page daily with more things to do, so please check back soon!
