Our story started in 2011 when I saw an advert on the internet to re-home two kune kune pigs. After taking on many more unwanted pets we decided in 2014 to open our doors to the public, and in the same year we took over the Fenn Bell pub and gardens, starting work on what it is you see today.To be able to open to the public we had to get a zoo licence and after a hard two years of work we were finally granted our zoo licence and we opened our doors in June 2017. People have said that we are crazy to take on such a big project, and to be fair, i think you had to be, to achieve this. The truth, is that many people have helped and given there support. Without this help we could not achieve what we have.
Our plans moving forward are quite ambitious, we want to work on more British conservation projects such as red squirrels and British honey bees. We will build an education center that can be used by schools and university's, but most of all our duty is to give a home for life to the animals just like ginger and spice our kune kune pigs (who still live with us). I hope you enjoy coming here and don't hesitate stopping me or any of the staff, if you see any of us walking around for a chat. We are very blessed to be given a chance to create such a place as this and with your support we can continue to achieve so much more.
