Farmyard and Nature

Get your boots muddy with a true taste of rural Kent. At Kent Life, we showcase and breed traditional farm animals, with our free-range livestock including sheep, cattle, pigs, horses, donkeys, goats, poultry, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, ducks, geese and, most recently, alpacas. All animals are housed in historic outhouse barns, so visit today and experience a real working farm and farmyard.

Cuddle corner provides the opportunity to get up close and personal to some of our smaller farmyard friends – a must for a family day out in Kent. 

The Cobtree Young Farmers' Club is a mixed group aged between ten and 23 years, all with a shared interest in animals. The Young Farmers meet at Kent Life every Saturday and learn about general husbandry for all our farmyard animals, with particular emphasis on cattle, sheep and pigs.
