Hello and welcome

Lancaster Park & Animal Farm is a family run childrens’ petting farm located in Chadderton near Oldham which offers a great day out for all the family!

Visitors are invited to meet, touch and feed the animals.  We have a range of animals from horses and sheep to rabbits, chickens and many more.  We have two play areas with swings, slides and ziplines dotted along a scenic Nature Walk.  Ride on the Caterpillar barrel ride, drive our mini quads on the Rooster Rally, dig up the sand pit at Digger Island or maybe you can take on the pirates at our Pirate Shoot-out!  Please feel free to bring your own picnic to eat at the picnic benches.

We love our farm and our animals, and we’re sure you will too!

Our History

Lancaster Park & Animal Farm was opened in 2011 by Benjamin Lancaster.  Ben, who was born in 1940, started out as a coal miner before moving into demolition. The land he purchased for the Park was previoulsy used for landfill.

Today the farm is looked after by Ben’s children David, John and Lily alongside a small group of dedicated volunteers and staff members.  The family are dedicated to improving and reinvesting in the farm and are sure you’ll see it get better and better over the coming years.  They would like to say a massive thank you all those who have given their time to help build up the farm over the years… Onwards and upwards!

Things To Do

Our Animals

We have over 50 species of farm and domesticated animals on the farm – many of which we have helped to rescue.

We aim to provide the best possible environment and lifestyle for each of our animals to help them lead a happy and healthy life.

Several are real characters and some can be quite naughty on occasion!

4 star ratingCute day out Cute little farm, lots of different animals for our 2 year old to see and great play area. We loved the animal petting part with the chicks, rats and rabbits. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough to help. Could do with a bit of money spending on it for things like fencing and some of the areas for the animals. But had a lovely day.
