Our hugely popular Junior Farm has many daily activities – feeding the rabbits, grooming the ponies, bottle feeding the spring lambs and collecting your own eggs from our henhouses. We have a School Room for school groups and Birthday parties.
Please note that Junior Farm is only open during weekends in January so that we can carry out our annual maintenance.
From 2nd February 2015 onwards Junior Farm is open everyday 10am – 5pm except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and weekdays during January. In winter, the farm closes at dusk.
Entry costs are just £6.25 per person, with under 2’s free.
