The Farm

Newbridge is renowned for its commitment to high standards of animal welfare and preservation of rare breeds of animals, which have nearly disappeared due to intensive methods of farming. See a working farm whose animals are reared in an environment where they can move about freely and behave naturally. Children can check out the Farmyard Discovery Trail for an interactive experience navigating the farmyard and paddocks while completing challenges and learning along the way.
