Animals & Activities

Become a Junior Farmer for the Day!

Our hugely popular Junior Farm has many daily activities…

If you are a planning a school visit please download our RISK-ASSESSMENT

PIGGY’S PLAY STY

Head to Piggy’s Play-Sty – ideal for letting off steam before the next bout of farmyard fun. Heated indoor soft-play; perfect for little ones.

CUDDLE TIME

Our rabbits, guinea pigs and chicks are so cute and love to get a gentle cuddle from our visitors.

GREEDY GOATS

Say hello to our goats. We have a variety of breeds to learn about. Visitors can buy bags of feed to hand-feed our goats – make sure you hold the bag tight as they’re very greedy, but very friendly too and just love it when visitors take selfies with them to share on our social media and will happily strike the perfect pose for you.

HUNGRY CALVES

From July, visitors love to help us with daily bottle-feeding our baby calves as we take over looking after them from their mothers who are local dairy cows.

BELLA’S BARN

In Bella’s Barn you’ll find play houses, ride-on tractors, lego and more. Plus seasonal crafts and face painting.

EGG COLLECTING

We’ve got hens galore in all colours, shapes and sizes. Take a look in the nest-boxes and you may be lucky enough to pick some fresh-laid eggs to buy and take home. While the “gobbling” turkeys will make you chuckle and just stand awhile to watch the ducks go gliding by on the pond.

PONY GROOMING

Meet our playful ponies who live in the paddock with our donkey. They enjoy being groomed; it’s good to remove the mud and dust from their coats and we love to have help from our visitors to give them a good brush to help keep them happy and healthy.

VISIT THE PIGGERY

Visitors can learn all about our pigs and watch them being fed at our daily Piggery Lunch. Look out for Toffee and Humbug our micro pigs (although they are not that small anymore!). Oink!

MEET THE SHEEP

Baaaaa! See our woolly sheep nibbling at the grass out in the paddock. In Spring, you may even see a baby lamb being born.

LEARN HOW TO MILK

Why not try it for yourself and pretend you’re the farmer with Wroxie the milkable cow. Can you fill the bucket?
