We'll be scanning some of our pregnant ewes LIVE in front of visitors in the IAE Animal Barn. Make sure you're here for a front row seat!

The Sheep Show

Learn all you need to know about the milk story with this fascinating demonstration. A member of the team will take you through the process of milking with the assistance of either a Gloucester cow or one of our Saanen or Toggenburg goats. Milking demonstrations take place at the Farm Park from April all the way through to December.
Make friends with our youngest Farm Park residents in the Touch Barn. We bottle feed our lambs and goat kids twice daily throughout the year and it's a fantastic activity for visitors of all ages to get involved with.
