For the farm from Patch's London Adventure, see Cherry Tree Farm.

The Dearly Farm is a location in the 101 Dalmatians franchise. It is the home of Roger, Anita, Pongo, Perdita and their 99 Dalmatian puppies, as well as many different farm animals.

Originally owned by Widow Smedley, the Dearlys purchased the farm from her; however, Cruella is determined to find some way to steal the farm from them.


In 1732, it is established that the farm area was owned by a De Vil, which was never relinquished. Cruella tried to use this to her advantage, but the deed states that she needed to live in the barn for 24 hours to make a claim. She was driven from the barn, in shock and horror, when she woke up to find the Dalmatians crawling all over her.

The farm is notable to have a water tower to bring water from the well. According to Anita, General Smedley built it to make sure the crops would never grow dry.

Before the Dearlys moved to the farm, it was an H.M.F. base for the 9th Queen Royal Lancers, along with being the home of the Colonel, Captain, and Sgt. Tibbs. Pongo and Perdita were reunited with their pups in the barn, whilst rescuing them from Cruella's plan.

When the Dearlys purchased the farm, they made a promise to Widow Smedley that they would keep everything as is, meaning that when Cruella wished to purchase the railcar, Roger refused.

Places of interest

The Dearly Farm is known to have multiple buildings around its grounds, which, according to Anita, is more than twenty acres.

  • There is the main barn, which is where most of the animals tend to hang out, along with acting as "City Hall" for Mayor Pig. There is also a great oak tree shown to be growing into the barn itself, but this tree has a clubhouse inside its trunk. The tree is also shown to have a possible birdhouse and a tire swing on it. Inside the barn is a television and a wagon, which Pongo and Perdita use as their room. Villa De Vil and Gruteley can also be seen from the hayloft window.
  • The Dearly Farm house where Roger, Anita, and Nanny live. It has the expected things, such as a lounge, kitchen, dining room and bedrooms, but it also has the upper levels converted into a studio for Roger and Anita: Roger for working on his video game designs and Anita for her fashion work. The kitchen and studio are also connected via a dumbwaiter.
    • The house has an upstairs and downstairs bathroom along with a basement with some designs, and is also shown to have a laundry room, though the laundry isn't seen.
  • There are other barn-like buildings around the farm, such as a shed which has a freezer, though this was damaged when Cadpig, trying to convince everyone about an ice comet, causes the shed to fill up with ice and turn into a giant ice ball. ("Prophet and Loss")
    • There is also a tool shed, which the Dalmatians are nervous to be near, considering the fact that a lot of heavy tools fall from it when the door is opened. ("Valentine Daze")
  • The Chow Tower where the Dalmatians get their kibble, which is operated by Nanny pedaling on a bike that causes the kibble to pour into the trough.
  • A windmill stands near the Dearly Farm house which Roger accidentally knocks over in "Prophet and Loss", and Spot crashes a plane, which Lucky made, into it during "Alive N' Chicken".
  • A hen hut near the Chow Tower, where Spot and the other chickens live.
  • The Water Tower, which General Smedley put in years ago, so the crops would never get dry. ("Fountain Of Youth")
  • A wagon near the Dearly Farm barn, which acts as Mooch's hangout.
  • Behind the barn is a 1912 Kimbo railway car where the Colonel lives.
  • Another known point of the Dearly Farm is "Towser's Hill" where the Dalmatians tend to do their "Twilight Bark" messages.
  • Cadpig mentions that there is also an area called "Snider's Mill" when Lucky asks her where his bone collection is. ("Prophet and Loss")


According to Cruella, the deed states that, excluding pre-existing farm stock, the Dearlys are only allowed 101 pets, and if they break this clause, Cruella would win possession of the farm.


In the pilot episode, "Home is Where the Bark Is", Cruella offers to buy the farm for double what they paid. Whilst her handwriting in the episode is unclear, when the same clip is played again in "Humanitarian of the Year", her cheque clearly says "One Million Dollars", meaning the Dearly's paid five hundred thousand dollars.

In the episode "Dough the Right Thing", the monthly mortgage payment for the farm is established to be $1,582.


  • In early production art, the Chow Tower was going to be located behind the barn. On the same piece of art, however, there are rough lines which recommend moving the Chow Tower to the side of said barn. In the show itself, the Colonel's rail car is placed where the Chow Tower would have originally been located.
