Now the children are breaking up for the Summer holidays there's lots of fun here at the farm.
The Petting barn
We have baby rabbits due to be born all through July , August and September. Some are giant French Lops and some smaller breeds -all very cuddly. The guinea pigs are also breeding and the babies are so cute. We encourage the visitors to stroke and hold the rabbits and guinea pigs.We also usually have some chicks in the petting barn.
Each day at 1.30pm we let the children help us to collect the free range eggs from the nesting boxes in the poultry yard. They place the golden brown eggs in the basket. After boxing and labelling they are available to buy in Reception.
A new event this year is pig racing. We have seven KuneKune young pigs who are great characters and to see them race around the track is hilarious! They really enjoy all the attention.
Tractor and Trailer rides.
Throughout the day we run tractor and trailer rides around the farm. Farmer Bob takes passengers down the farm tracks and stops en route to show the animals.The charge for this is £1.00 with under 3's free.
Between events there's lots of fun on the Jumping Pillow to bounce up and down and burn off excess energy! Zoom on the Zip Wire or squirt your friends on the Gobots! We have also added a large combination climbing frame with slide,tunnel and more adventure!
We have made changes to the playbarn with some different play equipment . We have removed the bale climbing and sandpit and have installed a trim trail with tunnels and climbing and have also added an "Old Pioneers" climbing frame. These new additions have added lots more fun to the playbarn.There are still pedal tractors and picnic tables for indoor picnics.
The restaurant sells home-cooked main meals , cakes and snacks with a good selection of cold and hot drinks and ice creams.
Picnics are welcome and there are lots of picnic tables around the play area.
