Lambing Open Days start this coming Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st January. 10-4pm. It has been a busy weekend with our Oxford Down ewes giving birth to three sets of twins. Several others are looking very imminent.
Beat the winter blues and enjoy a day at Miller’s Ark with our latest lambs, baby donkey foals, piglets and baby rabbits plus lots more adorable animals who have missed their cuddles… Our annual “baby fest” has started.

Life in the day of a pig… big thank you to The Y Knot Inn for letting us know we had an escapee
We had a late Christmas present Lizzie proud mum gave birth to Jingles on Boxing Day. Jingles is already enjoying scampering on the frosty farm with his other nursery friends.

The Mobile Farm is excited to be taking our friendly farm animal on a outing to Cedar School in Southampton in December.
They are a school community that works in open partnership to meet the physical, health and learning needs of children.
Many of the children have complex Special Educational Needs and Physical Difficulties(SEND) that result in the need for a different approach to their education. As such Cedar School ensures learning activities are enriching, relevant, multi-sensory and concrete so that learning is secure and can be applied in a range of circumstances and contexts.
We hope you have a fantastic time with our animals.
Beautiful morning last weekend the same day Santa arrived at the farm!
Santa is back this weekend 25th and 26th November 10-4pm to see all our friendly animals and families 😃
Farm address: Manor Farm, Blackstocks Lane, Hook, RG27 9PH

Looking forward to taking our #MobileFarm to The Ridgeway Community School which is a school for children in Farnham next week!
The school is for children between the ages of 2 and 19 with severe and complex learning difficulties with an additional expertise and provision for pupils with an additional diagnosis for #Autism.
We are delighted to be taking our friendly farm animals to meet them all!
Our priority is to make a safe space for people who want to escape the noise and stress in their lives and reconnect with themselves and others, or enjoy family time away from the public eye.
All our animals enjoy human contact and are gentle and safe.

We are covered by the NFU Mutual’s Public Liability insurance and can provide a clear risk assessment. Our experienced team are all CRB checked and we believe in the highest standards of welfare for the animals in our care.

As well as all our adorable young donkey foals, piglets, chicks, ducklings and baby rabbits wanting cuddles, there will be our feed zone where the sheep and goats will be waiting for you to give them treats.
We are expecting another miniature donkey foal to be born any day to add to the nursery where Guiseppe and Skye are scampering around.
What’s more, our giant straw play is moving to the main barn to allow plenty of straw tunnels and bales for the children to let off steam as well as a welcome return of the aircraft tyre horse swings.
AND as if all this is not enough, the elves will be there excited about Santa arriving at Miller’s Ark at 11am each day to head in to his grotto for the afternoon.
Entry for the farm is still £7 for adults and children 2 and over. Under 2’s are free.
Families wanting to the visit the farm and enjoy the animals can pay on the day as usual.
If you would like your child to see Santa in his grotto, the cost is an additional £5. Adults are free to accompany their children to see Santa.
