Had a lovely afternoon. My 6 yr old especially enjoyed the pony ride and the petting area... Although would like to see them get to hold more animals.. Ie guinea pigs, maybe even the piglets or baby lambs! First time visit. Would definitely return. Helpful, friendly staff.

I wrote a huge constructive review for your organisation, but shortly after deleted it. I felt your previous responses to criticism were always kindly defensive and my guidance to you would be wasted. The overworked hen enclosures have no soil structure, the grass is literally gone. Your hens are fighting in boredom as evidenced by their lack of feathers on... More

Sometimes you'd pay that just for entrance for one person. It was a very small farm but our small children enjoyed the little... More
