Animal Farm & Nature Reserve
Animal Farm is the Home of the 'Rasta Fowl'-our name for the funky chickens with the dreadlocks hair-do!
There are several varieties of these interesting chickens on the farm.
Animal Farm started out as a six-acre 'Fun Farm' located in Copse, Hanover, Jamaica. We have since grown to over 40 acres of mainly forest reserves - hence our change in name.
The farm is primarily dedicated to aviculture- the breeding and rearing of birds and we have over seventy different
varieties- but we also have other animals on the farm: pigs, goats, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs and a donkey named Boxer for the kids to ride around!

Animal Farm.. Where all the animals are equal.... but, of course, some are more equal than others!

Visit us any day between 10 a.m and 5 p.m.to see the farm. You may also want to have a picnic by the river, so bring your lunch or, if you wish, you may use our cooking facilities.
The kids will be thoroughly entertained with the beautiful birds and other animals as well as in Joelle's Playground, where they can swing and slide to their hearts' content. There are lots of places
for adults to spend some quiet time with nature- so take along your favourite book, if you like.
The farm is environmentally -friendly.
We use Solar Power for electricity, generate Bio-gas for
cooking and refrigeration and use compost instead of
Our Motto : DON'T JUST LIVE,
Because of these chickens and the fact that we
consider ourselves to be the premier nature tour on
the island we have named our tour- The Rastafowl
As we have grown to become Animal Farm & Nature Reserve, we
are now able to offer Bamboo River Rafting and Hiking Tours. We
have also added a Butterfly House displaying Jamaican
Lepidoptera and a much more extensive riverside experience.
