Open Farm Days 2018

Open Lambing starts in...  

**   UPDATE  **


We are sorry to announce that we will be closing to the public from Thursday 12 April

We have been advised by Public Health England that, while there is a risk of gastrointestinal cases, it would be wise to prevent direct contact with the farm animals. Our main priority has always been to make sure that the farm is safe for everyone who comes here to visit, and we would prefer to take the precautionary measure of closing the farm completely, to ensure that we are doing all that we can to protect our visitors, staff and our animals, while the situation remains unclear. We hope we have your support with our decision and our thoughts are with those affected. 

If anyone has any concerns please direct them to your GP or Environmental Officer as appropriate.
