Keeping Safe on Junior Farm….

To help you enjoy your visit to Junior Farm safely please adhere to these guidelines:

  • Contact with farm animals can cause illness and disease. Children and the elderly are most vulnerable.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water after touching the animals, before you enter Piggy’s Play-Sty and before leaving the farm. Children must be supervised to make sure they wash thoroughly.
  • Keep fingers away from the mouth and eyes.
  • Do not eat any sweets, snacks, animal foods or drinks whilst on the farm.
  • Children under 16 must be supervised by an adult at all times while on the farm.
  • Pregnant women should avoid close contact with sheep and lambs.
  • Do not feed the pigs.

We are members on The National Farm Attractions Network and adhere to the very latest Industry Code of Practice and AIS Visit Farms Guidance.
