While visiting Edendale say hello to our guinea pigs, small native animals and farm animals, including sheep, calves, alpacas and goats. You can also go in with and feed the poultry with the food provided. 

Animal welfare is a top priority at Edendale. Please be aware that some animals need particular grazing conditions. This means that animals are moved around the farm to meet their needs as well as considering good landcare practices. Not all paddocks will have animals or they will be in a different space since your last visit.
