Wear your wellies and waterproofs, and join us for outdoor fun this October half term at Amelia Trust! Try our Puzzling Pumpkin Trail, see the animals, stroll through the woodland, and play in the outdoor park.

Our countryside space is perfect for your family to spend a few hours outside. This half term, leave your devices at home and join us for Farm fun! Our Puzzling Pumpkin trail will be running all week, as well as Freaky Festivities on Monday 31st October. There’s also a chance for children to Be a Farmer for the Day on Wednesday 2nd November and Friday 4th November.

As well seeing all our animals, you can explore our glorious woodland, play in the park and enjoy coffee and a snack from Bro Coffi. Even better, your visit will help us continue to support disadvantaged and vulnerable young people across South Wales.

We really appreciate the support we receive from our visitors. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to continue our charitable work!

Ready to visit?

Just in case you need more reasons to pop down and see us, here are a few facts about Amelia Trust that you might not know.

Did you know…

…we are a nature reserve

Our ancient woodland is home to lots of different species of floral, fauna, animals, and wildlife. With so many different habitats and so much diversity, we are classed as a nature reserve.

… many of our animals have been rescued

Lots of the animals you see at the Farm have been rescued or rehomed at the Farm. Many are on special diets to keep them healthy, and all are given everything they need to live out their lives happily.

… two other charities call the Farm home

As well as being a charity ourselves, we are home to two other charities: Woody’s Lodge and Organic Field Days.

Woody’s Lodge is a charity that supports veterans of the armed forces and their families. Currently based in the Bunkhouse, Woody’s hold lots of events for their members, as well as offering plenty of support.

Field Days Organic is part of Innovate Trust, and they support adults with learning difficulties. Field Days Organic gives their participants the chance to learn new skills through a horticultural training project.

… the young people on the GROW project help out around the Farm all year round

The young people who attend the GROW project take part in a number of different activities at the Farm, including looking after our animals, maintaining our woodland paths, creating new trails, and general maintenacne around the Farm.

… we have over 60 volunteers!

As a small charity, we are very lucky to have lots of wonderful volunteers who help out at the Farm and make it look beautiful for our visitors. Our volunteers get involved in everything from ground work and gardening, to animal care and supporting our young people! If you’d like to help out, you can find out more on our Get Involved page.
