The farm is run entirely by volunteers and is open for 6 days a week (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day & 2nd January). Although we try to be consistent with our opening hours, from time to time these need to change due to our volunteers availability. Our current opening hours can be found on our “About Us” page here.

There is no need to book. If there is no one at the gate when you arrive, please press the bell and someone will come and assist you.
As we are a charity we do not charge entry into the Farm. However we recommend a donation of £5/ family of four. All donations, no matter how small, are always most gratefully received.
