Zoonotic Disease

All animals naturally carry a range of micro-organisms, some of which can be transmitted to humans, in whom they may cause ill health, which in some cases may be severe.

E.Coli 0157 & Crprosporidium are the most common.

To keep yourself safe:

1. Wash hands in warm water with soap after animal contact

2. Supervise children, do not let them put fingers in mouth after touching animals, dummies should not be used if they have fallen on the floor until sterilised

Expectant Mothers

Do not go near expectant goats.

We do not have expectant goats at this time April 2024


The BGC has a mixture of pathways, hard standing and grass.

When weather is fine and grass is dry wheelchairs and buggies can access all areas.

When the weather is wet some parts of the farm cannot be accessed in wheelchairs and buggies, please call us for an update 01296 612893
