Farm Fun - Barn

      Several of the domestic animals live inside the barn during winter and nighttime. When the park is actually open, the barn contains a "playground" made from straw bales and a small aviary. The free-ranging housecats can also often be seen in here.

      Farm Fun is a combined playground/park/farm zoo near the town of Aalbæk in the very north of Denmark. Officially, it's a "besøgslandbrug" (visitor's farm) which means it's only allowed to keep the same animals that private people are allowed to keep - meaning that most non-domesticated mammals as well as venomous snakes and some larger birds are forbidden. Some visitor's farms focus solely on farmyard animals, while Farm Fun is among those that split the focus between domestics and exotics.

      About a third of the park consists of a huge playground, making the place tremendously popular with families, but the remainder of the area is an animal park, and Farm Fun is the most speciose farm zoo in Denmark, keeping around 60 species (probably some 70-80 types of animals if you count different subspecies and breeds). The exhibitry standards vary a lot - most of the hoofstock have big, green enclosures, but some of the exhibits for smaller animals could certainly need an overhaul.
