Meet the Farmyard Animals
Have a close encounter with our young fuzzy friends and don't forget to ask a member of the team any animal-related questions you might have.
The Sheep Show
A pageant of history on four legs, this demo is excellent fun! Some of our rams climb up a pyramid shaped stage and help us to demonstrate how sheep breeding has changed over the last 4,000 years.
As the weather gets warmer, it's a bit too hot for our sheep to be wearing their winter coats. Some of the primitive breeds naturally shed their wool before the summer comes, but others need a little bit of help. We will shear the sheep of their fleeces, explaining the process and how the wool and lanolin can be used afterwards.
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.
