Adopt Rent or Sponsor an Animal 

How many animals are there at Farmer Giles Farmstead?

There are over 150 animals at Farmer Giles. Some are born here every year and find new homes and some will spend their whole lives with us here. They are all different types, colours and shapes!

Sponsor an Animal - A Present with a Difference!

Why not sponsor one of our animals? It only costs £30 for a year and included in that is a FREE season ticket so you can come and see YOUR animal as often as you like, a certificate with a picture of your animal and your name and details (e.g. your birthday or celebration) and we also put up a copy of your certificate in our animal gallery so that other people can see who has sponsored each animal.

Take a look at some of the animals on the right and see if you would like to choose one for yourself or a friend?

Animals to Schools or Special Events

We are happy to bring some animals out to see you at your own event. We often take ponies and donkeys to schools, residential homes or even to Salisbury Cathedral for special services! If you would like us to bring some animals to see you, give us a call (Contact Us) and we can discuss a package to suit your requirements.


We are also happy to bring Socks or some of his friends to your birthday party and to give supervised pony rides. If you would to book this or to discuss in more detail please give me a ring (Mrs Farmer Giles Contact Us)
