Let me start off by saying i love white post farm as do my young children i think it is well worth a visit anytime of the year and i think everyone should support them and other local farms etc.
In my opinion white post have become slightly greedy with regards the entrance and animal feed I have been visiting now several times a year for several years. I now take my 2 young children (age 3 and 18months) and although it used to be reasonable for a lovely day out it is now costing for 2 adults and my eldest (my youngest doesn't pay yet!!) nearly £30 not including any feed for the animals!! Animal feed is at now £1 per bag (they have a bag for 2 legged animals and a bag for 4 legged animals!!) anyone that has visited white post farm will know that the food doesn't go very far (especially the 2 legged bags!!) I have ducks at home and I only pay £3 for 4kg of grain!! So charging a £1 per bag of grain is ridiculous. when we first started going the food was 25p per bag. I know prices have increased but I honestly think that to charge that much for food is just discouraging people buying and supporting our local businesses.
As for the farm itself as I have already said I love it as do both of my children. The farm is getting a bit dated but that doesn't really matter everything is safe and the animals are well looked after. As for the smell in the barn, anyone who owns livestock or lives in the country knows that however many times animals are cleaned out they will always be a little smelly it's a farm!!!! I have never seen the animals dirty nor have I ever worried or been concerned for any.
We always go to the animal holding and my daughter loves holding all the animals, last time we went the lady working on the animal holding was rude and unpleasant but that was a first generally the staff are lovely.
Would def recommend but it's getting quite expensive, be careful white post farm customers will look else where!!!
INSIDERS TIP!!! BEWARE OF THE LLAMAS THEY SPIT (ALOT)!!!
