A poultry enthusiast heaven, contained in our barn amongst many things poultry are the brooding areas where our young stock are kept, ducklings, chicks, guinea fowl poults, quail to name just a few. Our great range of housing are on show here and in use a lot of the time for our bantams and pol quail. The poultry shop is here as well, selling every thing you need for your poultry from feed to treats and every thing in between. This is a working area so there is a fair amount of hustle and bustle and is the reception area when you first arrive at the farm. A genuine warm welcome is made to all our customers whether you are here to buy livestock, purchase stock from the shop or popped in for some advice or just to have a look around. We welcome new poultry keepers and encourage people to come and have a look at our birds and ask questions. There is no pressure to buy so if you want to come here on a ‘fact finding’ mission to see if the world of poultry is for you then you are more then welcome. Our opening hours are 10.30am – 5.00pm Wednesday to Saturday no appointment required.

At present due to the avian flu restrictions there is no access to any of the pens or enclosures. The birds are still on view but you can not enter any of the pens this includes the deer park Make the most of your visit here and enjoy a walk around the farm; whilst the majority of poultry for sale is at the front of the farm we have a further 15 acres of fox proof enclosures with many ponds and plants to keep all our livestock happy. The waterfowl enclosure is home to our private collection of waterfowl over 100 species , you can wander around and feed the birds ; see if you can spot any of the palma wallabies maybe even a joey in a pouch. From the waterfowl enclosure you can walk up past the pheasant pens and boarding pens into the deer paddock where we have fallow and red deer, free range guinea fowl and peafowl, bennetts wallabies, mara and much more.On the hillside you may spot our rheas and pygmy goat herd.Watch out for ‘Red’ our tame deer always looking for attention.Pygmy goats that are for sale and their kids are next to the poultry selling pens. They are always a crowd pleaser with their acrobatics. All we ask is that you keep your children under control no chasing the animals and if you are happy with what you see make a donation to help with the upkeep of this unique farm.
We breed and sell may peafowl and guinea fowl here at Moon Ridge Farm . With one of the largest colour ranges in the South of England we supply guinea fowl and Peafowl all over main land UK . We do not transport day olds or young stock but you are welcome to collect from the farm . Our breeding stock are mainly completely free range around our 37 acre farm although they generally stay within the 15 acres of fox proof pens roosting in the oak trees and foraging for food or just sunbathing during the day . To keep a healthy number of some of the rarer colours within the guinea fowl stock some of the birds are kept in large netted pens during the breeding season. For more information on these wonderful birds please visit our pea and guinea fowl page

“The four Indian Runner Ducks we collected yesterday have settled in well and no problems meeting our chicken.
Thank you for your excellent efficient and friendly service. We were most impressed and will certainly come back to you.
The staff were charming, clearly appeared to know what they were talking about. Not too pushy, & willing to put themselves out.
We have already told three different lots of friends.
We also liked the layout, the cleanliness, the choice and not having to search for someone to help. Congratulations on a great business.

“Just wanted to put a quick post up to say that my wife and I took my little girl to Moon Ridge Farm today. We arrived 20 mins before closing after a few delays. I only intended to stay for 15 minutes. The last thing I wanted to do was keep someone at work on a Friday evening!
I was blown away at how friendly the staff were, especially the owner. He made us feel very welcome. Didn’t rush us at all. Let us have a wonder around and offered some brilliant advice. They let our little girl spend some time with the puppies.
We were also really impressed by the husbandry and health of the animals. We didn’t see anything that looked out of place.
I’d thoroughly recommend a visit. It’s definitely a business I will be supporting.”

Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time choosing our new batch of hens from you last Friday. Caitlin was great particularly as I had brought a Swiss family with a little girl to help choose. The hens had a smooth journey to ours and settled in very well. I’ve spent plenty of time with them and they are such sweet and friendly birds. We bought two Devon Blue and two Bantoms. The black bantam (I’ve called ‘Matron’) is very much in charge… Not what I expected 😂
Very tempted to come back for more but will be patient.
Great set up that you have and great staff, thank you.
