Amelia Trust Farm

Details

The Amelia Trust Farm is a countryside sanctuary for everyone to enjoy! Set in 160 acres of land in the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan, our wonderful Farm is home to a variety of animals, from rabbits and ferrets, to pigs, alpacas and donkeys.

Visit our Farm to meet our animals, explore our lovely woodland walks, and stroll along our special Farm trails. Bring a picnic and relax in the fresh air, or watch the children let off some steam in our play area.

We offer a range of activities throughout the year and we have a café onsite where you can buy refreshments. As well as family visits, we cater for school and youth group visits, and we can arrange overnight stays in our Bunkhouse.

Our incredibly popular children’s birthday party packages are always a big hit with our little guests and are full of free-range fun!

The Amelia Trust Farm is a charity that helps disadvantaged young people gain the skills, confidence and experience they need to help them move forward at a critical time in their lives. The donations we receive from visitors help us to continue to support our young people and keep our Farm open for all to enjoy.

Our Farm is a special place for a diverse community of people. As well as an alternative school for 11 to 16 year olds struggling to cope in mainstream education, our Farm is a welcoming place for volunteers, a quiet place for those coping with bereavement or illness, and a fun place for everyone to learn about nature and enjoy the outdoors.
