Newest Review: ... there are donkeys, sheep, goats and ponies. There is plenty of room for the animals and you can get very close to the animals with a little fence between you and the animals. You can buy food and feed the animals but you are encouraged not to feed the animals with food brought from home. The farm has hens and cocks in little boxes which the kids can look in at, they can also visit the feeding ... more

Graves Park is a park in Sheffield, it is in the Gleadless/Norton part of Sheffield and has a farm, cafe and sports pavilions. Parking Graves Park is in the Norton area of Sheffield, it can be reached by driving down the A61 and following the signs for the park. Graves Park is the largest park in Sheffield and I hope finally lays to rest the view that Sheffield is a dark and dank city. Once arriving there is a little road into the park and the park has reasonably generous parking facilities. Parking is an issue on busy days but there are plenty of parking around the park so it's usually not too hard to park reasonably close to the ... Read the complete review

Graves Park is a fantastic place for young children. There is everything you could want in a park and more. I regularly take my son who is now 14 months and we've had a stroll round the grassy aread and rose gardens, had a drink and snack in the large and friendly Rose Garden Cafe (plenty of room for meeting other mums and babies if that's what you want to do). Had a look at the play area outside the cafe, been down to the pond to feed the ducks (and the baby) and especially visited the piece de resistance which is the animal farm. There are small fields with cows, sheep, pigs and shetland ponies, and then a more enclosed area with goats, lots of chickens, rabbits, .. Read the complete review

Graves Pakr Farm. Never heard of it , have you? Well you should have. Becuase, I'm going to be perfectly honest here this is a wonderful farm. I'm not being biased here-okay I admit I only live ten minutes walk away from here but the main tjing about here is its free while other farm pakrs which are horribly commercialised and jut have some farm animals charge a disgusting foru punds just to see a few farm animals. Not here. Its free here. And there's more than just you run of the mill farm animals. There's a few that aren't quite as reguarly seen... The Farm is as you may have already have guessed in Graves Pakr which was ... Read the complete review

Situated on the south of the city, on Hemsworth Road at Norton is this farm. I've been here many times over the years and have seen it develop into a very good attraction for a quick half day out trip. There's a large free carpark and entry to the farm is also free, although you can donate to the upkeep if you wish. There are all different types of pigs, cattle, donkeys, goats, sheep, chickens, owls, all other kinds of birds, rabbits, guinnea pigs etc all in well laid out pens and cages. There's also a pair of roe deer which are expected to breed. In a large barn at the right time of year there is an abundance of adorable lambs, piglets, baby goats ... Read the complete review
