Farmer David will return to the fold on Monday, finishing the shearing demos with a flourish to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary in style.

This activity is all included with your farm admission, so you can also spend the day having fun on our farm, visiting the animals, experiencing our amazing play areas and watching milking demonstrations, sheep and ferret racing and tractor rides, plus watching meerkat feeding sessions.
Our reptile house will showcase our team-working ants and some fascinating other creatures – and a farmer will be in there every day allowing petting and handling for the more curious visitors.

Entry into the soft play is also included – plus there’s a free quiz trail to help keep the kids occupied.

Price on the gate is £9.95 per person, or £38 for a family of four.
