Welcome to Hendra Farm and Talons ‘Owl’timate encounters

Talons Owltimate Encounters at Hendra Farm

Hendra Farm combines traditional farming with a fully licensed, private zoo with owls, reptiles and exotic mammals.

At Hendra Farm we keep and breed Herdwick sheep, native breed pigs, Rheas (same family as Ostrich, but smaller), alpacas and four generations of pedigree Shire horses. Alongside the farm we run Talons, our unique owl centre, where we promote education and conservation. There is also a collection of reptiles and other exotics, which are used for our animal encounters and parties in Cornwall. Many of our reptiles and animals have either been rescued or re-homed, and they are given a forever home and a new lease of life.

The meat that we produce on the farm is sold either through our own mobile catering business, The Ansum Burger Co. or to private customers and local pubs. Everything is reared as slowly and traditionally as possible to ensure the best flavour and quality, using only essential chemicals such as wormers and vaccinations. We do not use any pesticides or artificial fertilisers.

We practise the highest standards of animal husbandry and welfare – our reputation speaks for itself!

Talons is the perfect place for the ‘owl’timate owl encounter! We offer a unique experience for all owl lovers where you can meet them, hold them and even fly them!

Our animal encounters allows everyone to meet the birds and animals as we bring the zoo to you! We visit schools, nursing homes, groups, clubs, holiday parks etc. and we also have the Reptile & Raptor Roadshow that travels around shows, fetes, rallies and other events.

NB! WE ARE OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC FOR OWL ENCOUNTERS & EXPERIENCES BY PRIOR APPOINTMENT ONLY.   

GROUP VISITS TO THE FARM ARE WELCOME BUT MUST BE BOOKED WELL IN ADVANCE.
