Murton Farm

About Murton Farm

Come and visit our farm with its animals, birds and children’s activities.

The star attractions will be Dennis and Gnasher, the Kune Kune pigs. You will love to meet them and they will love to meet you. They are very inquisitive, friendly animals and will trot over to greet you when you arrive at their field.

Our collection of lovable animals and rare breed poultry live around the farm’s central pond. Here you will see many breeds of chickens and ducks you will probably never have seen before.

Information boards will tell you all about the animals and birds as you wander round the farm. Come and see our cute ferrets, guinea pigs and rabbits and maybe even get the chance to pet them in our petting area. All of our animals are available for adoption or sponsorship.

There are now plenty of activities for the kids to try including an adventure trail, trampolines, sand pits, pedal toys and a variety of outdoor games. Great fun and something the grown-ups would probably love to have a go on too!

After all this you will have worked up an appetite, so a visit to our tea room which overlooks the farm will be just the thing.

Once refreshed you will be ready for a gentle stroll round our beautiful nature reserve with its lochs and wetlands where you will see lots more birds and wildfowl. Some nest here at Murton and others are just visiting. We hope like our visiting birds you will come back to see us again and again.

Please note that due to the fact that we have animals and wildlife on site, no dogs are permitted on Murton Trust grounds at any time, except for assistance dogs. Thank you for your understanding.
