The Farm offers several fantastic opportunites during the school holidays for those aged 8+.
[tab_item title=”Own a pony days”]
Your child will combine education with fun and hard work in a full day of horse-related activities. It is an ideal day for any youngster who doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty and wants to be around horses and ponies for a day.
You can book by the day or for a whole week (Tuesday to Friday – we rarely run Own A Pony on Mondays because the Farm is closed). Discounts apply if you book the whole week. The walk on horseback in the afternoon costs an additional £10 per child per day.
Children should arrive promptly at 10am, with a packed lunch (or money to purchase food from the Cafe) & be picked up at 4pm. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Ideal footwear for the day is wellies, jodhboots or riding boots (trainers are not appropriate).

[tab_item title=”Young farmers days”]
Your child will combine education with fun and hard work in a full day of activities on the Farm Yard. Children definitely need to like getting their hands dirty, don’t mind sweeping up in the animal pens and enjoy caring for the animals no matter what it takes and no matter what the weather!
You can book by the day or for a whole week (Tuesday to Friday – we rarely run Young Farmers on Mondays because the Farm is closed). There is a discount if you book the whole week.
Arrive at 10am or shortly afterwards, with your lunch (or money to purchase food from the Cafe) and be picked up at 4pm. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Ideal footwear are wellies or workboots but trainers are ok too (if you don’t mind them getting very messy).

[tab_item title=”Discover the farm”] This programme is a fantastic introduction to the Farm for any child. There’s something for everyone whether it is working with the animals, creating a collage, cooking up a treat or exploring the river Wandle.
There is plenty of variety in the activities so much so that a child who only wants to work with the animals might be better off on a Young Farmers programme.
Booking are usually via Merton Council’s website and nearly all children attend for the week at a cost of £80.
