Our Nile crocodiles have been a firm favourite with both the family and our customers. While they may not be the most traditional of farm animals, they are the most effective at their job.


Primarly used for butchery waste disposal, they operate at well over 90% efficiency, which means that the farm and the shop can run a more sustainable and environmentally friendly business, while also working to conserve these endangered animals.


The crocodiles are one of Andy's great passions, his respect for the animals and what he hopes to achieve with a breeding programme supported by the country's top experts is ambitious and so far exceeded all expectations.


To find out more about the crocodiles, meet Cuddles, Sherbet and Romeo themselves and find out what got Andy and the family involved with them, check out the events pages for our next crocodile demonstrations. If you can't wait that long you can watch a video here.
