Hoo Farm is a family-run Countryside Attraction nestling in 32 acres of woodland and paddocks in the heart of Shropshire. The farm is well over 100 years old and has been a dairy farm, tree nursery, and Award winning farm attraction, but most of all it has been a happy home for the Dorrell family since 1988.

When the Farm first opened to the public, it was for the sale of Christmas trees and was called Hoo Farm Country Park. Then, in the winter of 1993, when out feeding the animals in a freezing blizzard, lambs by the Rayburn, rabbits in the living room, six dogs, four cats and a parrot all taking up residence in the warmth, Edward and Carolyn decided to call the Farm “Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom.”

From then on the farm went from strength to strength and has now become the first licensed Zoo in Shropshire providing unique Animal Experiences also (Please ring to book!)

Hoo Farm is now home to Owls, Ostriches, Ferrets, Snakes. Meerkats, Bats. Caiman Crocodiles, Skunks and Wallabies. Not forgetting Pony Rides, Lamb and Deer Feeding, Meet the Reptiles, our Craft Centre and much, much more, including the famous Sheep Steeplechase and the unique Galloping Goats.
