Meanwood Valley Urban Farm, Leeds
(3.5/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Meanwood Valley Urban Farm is a charity established in 1980 to provide a 'taste of the country' within the city boundaries. It provides educational services to disadvantaged young people and adults and offers environmental education to primary school children.

It is a working farm with a wide variety of animals, amenity and market gardens with a range of natural habitats. Many of the animals can be seen from close quarters and fresh farm eggs can be bought in the Farm Shop. There is a small play area for under 12s and the Hungry Hedgehog Café is also located on the Farm.

In addition to the animals there are several woodland walks including a longer walk into the Scott Hall Copse at the far end of the Farm.

  • It is aimed for children. Swine, sheep, etc. Please go by car because public transportation is not good. Guests can enjoy the usual. It is family-friendly.

  • Lovely hidden gem of Leeds, tucked away in a wooded valley not far from the centre. Our little one loved feeding the animals with the bag of grain we got on arrival, and the baby chicks and ducklings were so cute! The newly-opened café is also nice, but they were struggling being short one staff member.
  • Great place for a family visit. Our son loves coming here to see the animals and his uncle Phil who is a gardener here.
  • Well, there was a young lamb, just starting to grow his horns and he got stuck in the barbed fence and a member of my family had to go and free him.😞 The animals seemed very hungry as well and the donkeys were scraping in the box for food as people had thrown rocks and cigar butts in there.The garden was nice.
  • Cute little break from city living, and good value for money
  • Nice place and friendly staff.loads of animals and things to do.plus I am a volunteer there.
