About Cockfields Farm

Our History

It’s hard to imagine a sack of potatoes could lead to the North West’s leading aquatic store but that is exactly what happened at Cockfields ……. selling potatoes at the front gate in 1966, to fruit and vegetables in part of the chicken shed and, in 1999 selling a few goldfish. This then led on to selling tropical fish and, in 2004, marine fish and corals.

Within a few years the business had outgrown the existing building and so a larger building on site was knocked down and a purpose-built building erected. From this new Building we extended the Aquatics Section massively and opened the petting farm. Each year the Farm grew and grew and we have been adding to it on a yearly basis to include new play areas, a Cafe selling home cooked food as well as a range of delicious cakes and coffee
