Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A wonderful day out, so relaxing! The staff were very friendly and the coffee in the cafe was absolutely delicious, one of the best I've ever had. Keep it up!

I have visited Deen City Farm on several occasions with my family. We often park at the Morden Hall Park car park then enjoy the scenic walk to the farm, which has been manageable for my kids even when they were quite young. I've been prompted to write this review as we went last week for the Santa's Grotto. The grotto was really sweet with lovely staff interacting with my kids on entry and exit. Father Christmas was super friendly and my children were very captivated by him. They were then given a small gift which they were very happy happy wth. It's great value at only £6.50 per child and I would really recommend for a grotto experience on a budget.

This city farm is an absolute delight. The people that work there are knowledgeable, friendly and you can tell they genuinely care about the animals.
The farm shop is very sweet, with lovely staff behind their till - very helpful and welcoming, and you can get animal feed for a small donation. They also sell lots of cute toys and have a not too large but very delicious selection of seasonal goods. I would say its best to get there early, to avoid disappointment, and to get a parking spot, as it especially gets busy on weekends.
They're closed Mondays, but I think it's great they're open 6 days a week, and that it's free entry. There are lots of donation boxes, which is good because id like to help and you can see the farm needs a bit more love in places, by no fault of anyone's. I can imagine it was tough for them over covid.
Great playground, the kids don't want to leave!
Overall, a brilliant experience for a well within budgeted day out. Will definitely be going back.

Lovely little farm with a great atmosphere and free entry. Lots of activities during the holidays and opportunities to meet the animals.

I’ve been taking my son to Deen City Farm since he was a small child. He’s now a teenager with learning disabilities and still loves visiting. His primary joy, like many kids, is feeding pellets to the animals. He was very excited about our visit.

At around 11:50 we were in the farm shop. There was a small queue and I got on the end of it. It turned out that the people I was behind were not actually waiting in the queue. Some other people came in and cut in front of me to ask for pellets. The woman told them that she only had one packet left. As I’d been there first, and I knew my son would not only be extremely disappointed but wouldn’t understand why, I got upset. (Running out of animal food at a children's farm before it’s even noon shows very poor planning.) I explained that I’d been there before the other people. The woman at the till gave me a bag of crumbs and sold the last remaining bag to the other visitors.

As I was walking out the door, I heard the woman behind the till—Deen City Farm’s representative to the public—loudly say, “Well, that was rude.” I was shocked, and went back into the shop and expressed my surprise that she’d be that hostile and aggressive about a guest in front of other guests. I explained that I’d been upset that my son was going to be disappointed and that he had special needs. She didn’t care and while laughing continued to mock me to the other guest. I told her that treating a guest like this was extremely unprofessional and I left the shop.

I was very shaken, but managed to spend fifteen minutes with my son feeding the sheep and goats, picking up pellets from the ground when our crumbs ran out. He wanted to go to the cafe, which is our usual pattern, but I was too upset to stay any longer.

We’ve been visiting the farm for years. More than a decade. And being treated with such hostile aggression when I was reasonably upset that my autistic son was going to be disappointed is crushing. I won't go back now. It’s ruined for me. And it’s very hard to find summer break activities for a teen with my son’s special needs, so breaks are going to be that much harder. Fortunately there are other city farms nearby, hopefully with staff who are supportive of people with special needs and won't verbally insult guests.

It's funny, because I'd recently taken my son to an exhibit in which, without my even asking, they made special effort to accommodate him and make sure he felt safe. The contrast between that experience and this one was striking.

Ok farm but won't return any time soon.
If you're in the area and need something to pass about 45 minutes, it will do, but it's certainly not somewhere to intentionally head to.
Unfortunately I did a pony ride (£3.50 booked online) and it was over in about 20-30 seconds! No joke. It really was that amount of time. Apparently there is " a video about it online". This is the reply I was given after I asked about this extortionate price.

It's nice that children can see various little animals for free but sadly I'd rather venture elsewhere.

We came to Deen City Farm for our organisation's away day yesterday and were so impressed with the farm. It is a really pretty and charming place with lots of adorable animals :). Our group's booked room was ideal and thoughtfully laid-out and ready for us upon arrival. The staff/volunteers were really friendly and helpful and on-hand for any questions. Thank you Maria, Jamie, and Toby for the fab guided tour and chance to feed the animals. The on-site Brioche Farmhouse Café is pleasant too, with lots on offer (hot food, coffee, teas, cakes). Great for a work/corporate booking and would recommend for a casual visit especially with children.

Friendly animals and staff. We enjoyed feeding and meeting the animals. There’s a cafe and a cute little farm shop too.

Had to book online to be allowed in but it didnt open until 10am. We were like 2nd in line and got in to find at least 20 odd people allready inside. Must be some secret entrance as they didnt pass us. I also booked a pony ride online which was £2.50 and £1.00 booking fee. When we got there a big sign said pony rides £2.00,so i was allready £1.50 out of pocket. My child got on the pony and was given a whole 20 seconds on it and then told thats the ride over and the next childs turn. Total rip off if i knew it was a 20 second ride i would not have bothered. Walked round rest of farm in 10 minutes and no much to see.
