Rare Breeds Centre

Opened in 2004, the Rare Breeds Centre at The Salvation Army Hadleigh Farm Estate is recognised by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust as an RBST certified Farm Park and LEAF member. We are dedicated to conserving the UK's native rare livestock and poultry breeds.

Facilities at the Centre are ideal for families and feature the Willow Maze, pedal tractors, play area and sand pit. Animal feed is available to buy at the Entrance Kiosk and throughout the open season (March-October) the team will be on hand to deliver educational talks and answer any questions you might have about our animals.

The Rare Breeds Centre works in close partnership with the Hadleigh Training Centre. All year round, trainees lend a helping hand with the maintenance and upkeep of the site as well as animal husbandry and helping to care for the animals and their environments.

Open daily from March-October, 10am-5pm. Find out more about our Opening Times and Admission Prices
