Half term Open Days start this weekend

There have been lots of new arrivals this week. 5 new tiny goat kids have joined the latest lambs in the nursery, with most wearing smart jackets to help them keep warm during the chilly nights. Piglets are nice and cosy in their straw and even Betty the latest donkey foal has her own jacket!
This year we have made sure Surrey, Berkshire and Wiltshire do not miss out so we are holding two weeks of open days, please see below for the days we are open.


Whatever the weather, there is plenty to occupy children of all ages, and adults can enjoy great food and drinks in The Old Dairy traditional heated tea barn.
Miller’s Ark welcomes everyone to a “hands on ” experience with our friendly animals.

We do not offer concessions, we keep the entrance cost as low as possible, so everyone can enjoy time on the farm.

Lambing Open Days starting soon!

We hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. At this point can we just say a huge thank you to all the families who visited us during our Christmas events, making all the hard work worth every minute.   The first good news of 2017 is our first lamb has been born. There are several very heavy ewes taking it easy in the maternity pen, so hopefully by our first LAMBING OPEN DAYS  on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd January, we will have a nice selection of lambs to cuddle.
