The twenty four acre working farm is fairly close to Leeds City Centre. It is a registered charity and is a centre for community and environmental work. The Epicentre a large wooden building; holds a reception, shop and various facilities including classrooms and meeting rooms. It fits in with the surroundings due to being made with local larch timber and is a sustainable building.
There are various animals to see including chickens, goats, pigs, donkeys, alpacas and sheep. You can buy bags of animal food at reception, the Ryedale sheep are particularly lovely to feed, they loved being petted and even wagged their tails at us. I could have taken one home! As well as animals there are gardens to enjoy with pushchair friendly paths. There are birds to spot and even a large bug hotel. Benches are dotted at various points for a sit down or picnic and there is a (very reasonably priced) cafe. For children there is also a play area to enjoy.
