Staying safe on the Farm

Health & Safety

Children must be supervised at all times while on the farm, especially when feeding, touching or holding the animals. Children under the age of 16 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult who is over 18 years of age.

Covid-19

We recognise our responsibility with regard to the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our staff and visitors in light of the coronavirus pandemic and are committed to following the advice and guidance provided by the government. For that reason, we’ve implemented a number of changes to the farm experience.

We’ll be strictly limiting the number of visitors who are able visit the farm during each session to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience. All visitors must book online in advance of their visit, we will not be selling tickets “on the door”. We have added new signs prior to entry to remind visitors not to enter the farm if they, or someone they have been in contact with in the last 14 days has had any symptoms of Covid-19. We’re providing lots of additional hand disinfecting facilities at regular intervals around the farm. We have increased the frequency of our cleaning regime throughout the day. We have limited the number of visitors inside the toilet facilities at one time and enhanced our regular cleaning regime. Some of our animal houses where social distancing is not possible will remain closed to visitors. We’ve created “one-way only” systems to keep areas flowing and prevent overcrowding. We’ve put up lots of signs to remind people of social distancing and safety measures in place as friendly reminders to everyone on how to enjoy their day – these include floor markings in some areas to emphasise two-metre distancing.

Hand-washing

Hand washing facilities can be accessed outside the Petting Barn, outside the Kiosk, at the Large Play Area and at the toilets.

Hand sanitising disinfectant is available at multiple locations around the farm.

Please ensure that all members of your party use these facilities at regular intervals.  Hand washing with soap and water is essential after feeding, handling or touching the animals and before eating, drinking, smoking and upon your exit of the farm.

First Aid

The first aid box is located at the Pay Desk.

Please inform a member of staff should you require first aid, one of our trained first aiders will be happy to help.

Activities & Events

Our Animals

We have over 50 species of farm and domesticated animals on the farm – many of which we have helped to rescue.

We aim to provide the best possible environment and lifestyle for each of our animals to help them lead a happy and healthy life.

Several are real characters and some can be quite naughty on occasion!
