Do you want to try out life on the farm? We are holding mini-farm experiences of 90 minutes for the budding farmer in your life.
You will have the opportunity to help feed the pygmy goats, alpacas and chickens. Some time will be spent “mucking out” or cleaning out one of the animal enclosures. Hold a chick, help collect the eggs and cuddle a cute little goat! Also on the agenda will be time spent “goat fishing” , feeding the alpacas, meeting Elvis the cockerel and cuddling Minky, Binky and Snork Maiden, the cheekiest of pygmy goat kids Plus, everyone on the experience will have time for photographs with our very friendly animals and cuddles with our playful pygmy goat kids.
Suitable for budding farmers aged 5 years and above. All children must be accompanied by an adult who is also participating in the Farm Experience. Maximum of 3 children per adult. We are not an “Open Farm”, we are a working farm and therefore, all experiences must be pre-booked. We do not allow non-paying spectators on farm.
Due to the fact that we are working farm with uneven tracks and paddocks, this experience is not suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs or buggies. For Health and Safety reasons, we cannot have any ladies attend who are at any stage of pregnancy (due to our pygmy goats kidding).
All people booking the experience, will be sent a copy of our Risk Assessment. All experiences will commence with a brief, mandatory Health & Safety talk.
Toilets and handwashing facilities available on site. For Health and Safety reasons, we do not allow food or drink to be consumed whilst taking part in this experience.
