Lamb Feeding Demonstrations
Spring has come and it is now time for our seasonal lamb feeding demonstrations. Come along at 12pm, 2pm and watch our members of staff feed the lambs; in these sessions you can ask our staff about commercial lambing, how the british sheep industry works and all the lamb related questions you can think of.
Meet The Animals
This is your chance to get up close and personal with our little furry friends. Join us every day at 11am, 1pm, 3pm to meet our cute little furry friends. From rabbits to rats, a Meet The Animals session is a great way to get hands on contact with some of the animals on the farm. If you have no experience handling animals before, no need to worry as each session staffed by experienced staff and volunteers who will help you out!
Tractor & Trailer Ride
Every hour there is a Tractor and Trailer ride to give farm goers an opportunity to have a look around the wider farm. The Tractor and Trailer Ride takes you down into the valley past fields full of sheep and our pond with a huge array of ducks, geese and guinea fowl. Then continues past the sand-school, where if you lucky you might see a horse training. Then on your way back you loop around past different fields with ponies, rhea, reindeer and pigs when finally arriving back at the farmyard where you will disembark. The Tractor and Trailer ride is a round trip that takes about 20 minutes. The cost is £2.50 per person and tickets can be purchased at reception, we advise you book upon entry to the farm to avoid the time slot you want being sold out.
Please Note: We need a minimum of 6 bookings to run the tractor ride, so on quite days there may be fewer rides.
Meet the Cows
Come along at 10am every morning and meet our lovely herd of jersey cows and their calves. During this demonstration the keeper will explain to you a little about the dairy industry and talk to you about the lives of the cows at Belmont Farm. It's an amazing time to learn a little more about cows, and where you Milk comes from, and if your lucky you may even get a slobbery kiss from a cow.
