About Bill Quay Community Farm

Bill Quay Community Farm prides itself on protecting rare breeds and providing fun, interesting and informative activities for families. As well as providing the opportunity for everyone to connect with nature. You'll find this farm in the northeast of England, in Newcastle upon Tyne - why not make a road trip here?

About The Farm
The amazing community farm is a registered charity, that operates on a not-for-profit basis to benefit the wider community. Come and learn about the importance of protecting rare breeds and the difference this makes to organic farming. Notice the diverse markings, colourings or horns of the animals that make them stand out from the crowd!

Did you know it's also a 25-acre working farm? Not only do they farm for food, but they practise and teach conservation and how to preserve rare breeds, as well as providing a range of activities for the community! Like craft activities for kids, as well as pig racing! 

Things To Do
At Bill Quay Community Farm, your family will encounter a delightful range of friendly farm animals. From playful pigs and adorable lambs to inquisitive goats, alpacas and quacking ducks, the farm is home to a diverse range of creatures that will captivate your little ones' hearts. They also have a Rabbit World opening soon - which is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face! Not forgetting the smaller animals like guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters and even chinchillas

The highlight of any visit is the chance to interact with these animals up close. Children can pet and groom them, as well as learn about their care and feeding. The knowledgeable staff and volunteers are always on hand to provide interesting facts and answer any questions, ensuring an engaging and informative experience for everyone.

There is a small animal room where you can get close to some of the tiny fluffiest and lots of woodland and open green spaces to enjoy roaming around in the warm summer months. You can also enjoy the Gruffalo Trail where your kids can don their explorer hats and in due course, they can attend Forest School

Bill Quay Community Farm is more than just a place to visit; it's a thriving hub for the local community. It offers numerous volunteering opportunities for individuals and families who wish to contribute their time and skills to support the farm's operations. Volunteering not only allows you to make a positive impact but also provides a chance to connect with like-minded individuals and forge lasting friendships. The farm hosts regular events, such as seasonal fairs and workshops, which are fantastic opportunities for families to come together, celebrate, and learn more about the world of farming and sustainability.

The farm is largely wheelchair and pushchair accessible with a delicious on-site café.
