We welcome school and nursery groups to visit on Fridays during term time. We are open every Friday for schools and nursery groups as well as general public admission.
Farm opening times: 10am – 4pm
Payment for school and nursery groups can be made in cash or cheque on the day and a receipt may be obtained on the day at the time of payment.
There is no need to make a booking.
We have ladies, mens and disabled toilets with a baby changing area and hand washing facilities.
At present we do not have a class room or eating area, however there are several picnic areas and picnic benches available to use.
In the interest of safety all children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times. We ask that groups adhere to the NSPCC recommended adult to child ratios.
Download our Risk Assessment. Schools/Groups are encouraged to carry out a pre-visit and conduct their own risk assessment if needed.
We aim to provide the best possible environment and lifestyle for each of our animals to help them lead a happy and healthy life.
