The farm shop, located outside the main Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm entrance, popped up during lockdown and is now open permanently for business.

The shop aims to provide local produce to zoo visitors.

Fresh tea and coffee from Clifton Coffee can also be taken away, alongside fresh and frozen meals, homemade cakes and desserts, made from South West products and cooked in the farm kitchen.
