About Young Farmers Days
Join our livestock staff for the day and learn about all the work it takes to keep the yard running and all the animals at the farm happy. It’s not all hard work though, you might learn all about handling small animals, or maybe take the ferrets for a walk around the yard!
Maya, aged eight, said: “I like Young Farmers because as well as meeting big animals and mucking out you get to play with small animals” and Poppy, aged nine, said: “I loved Young Farmers because we learned about farm animals and how a farm really works, we saw what goes on behind the scenes at the Farm and met new and interesting people”.

About Own A Pony Days
Find out what it takes to Own a Pony for the day. From mucking out in the morning to feeding and grooming during the day. Each morning there will be a different themed activity, subjects vary but could be tacking up to ride or plaiting for competition. In the afternoon the children go out for a half hour ride ride followed by a fun horse themed quiz and games. All Own a Pony participants will receive a certificate and rosette on completion of the day.
