News from the farm
Our Lambing Open Days continue for the next few weekends with new lambs arriving……and baby goat kids being born as well.
The piglets are now quite chubby and will be up for a good scratch and tickle and Napoleon our new Great Dane puppy will enjoy a cuddle. Bramble the much loved farm cat will be snoozing somewhere and our first chicks will be out in a pen with their mum.
And of course we’ll have friendly chicken and ducks to hold and adult and baby donkeys to groom.
Don’t miss out on the fun!
Entry is £8 for every one aged 2 and over, under 2s are free.
Allocated disabled parking is near to the farm entrance.

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.
