Easter fun at the farm!

Good news! We are open throughout Easter including bank holidays, and have lots of new arrivals for you to meet including baby chicks and ducklings, new born lambs (who are bottle fed at 11:30 and 2:30 every day!), bunnies and guinea pigs in our petting sessions, and of course tractor rides around our beautiful valley. Whilst you are here, don't forget to visit our Waffle Cafe and try our home made waffles and our latest edition of locally produced Beechdean Jersey ice cream!

We are also holding an Easter egg hunt here at the farm on Sunday the 27th of March! It will be running all day and is free of charge! Ask at reception as you arrive to get started!

 

Come and see our NEW ARRIVALS! We have started lambing here at the farm and James our shepherd has been very busy keeping an eye on our early Lambing flock of Kerry Hill sheep! Come and see them in the show area every day!

 

PLEASE BE AWARE: We have switched to our WINTER CLOSING TIMES now, so the farm is open from 9-5. The last entry is at 3:45pm, but please note that some of our bigger animals need to be put to bed in the fields, so may be taken down at 3:30pm to avoid walking in the valley in the dark. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes, but encourage you to go and say hello to them first whilst you are visiting us!
