We have sheep, pigs, goats and chickens to name a few and our placid Jersey herd are some of the most beautiful animals you’ll ever see.

Our hens – Rhode Island Red Hybrids, Legbars and Araucanas – ensure a constant supply of fresh eggs for Overends Kitchen. And a visit wouldn’t be complete without saying hello to our resident fostered donkeys – Conal and Carroll a much-loved pair from The Donkey Sanctuary, Cork.
