Just a few days to go until our Christmas Fair! Ahead of the festivities, our staff and volunteers have been hard at working decorating the main courtyard. Many thanks to our corporate volunteer group from we-worldwide.com who spent a chilly morning helping decorate trees, hang tinsel and much much more! They certainly add a festive touch to the courtyard!

Over the next few days we’ll be making a few more additions, then just need to wait for Santa and his elves to arrive and kick off the festivities on Saturday! We hope you’ll join us then!


Hope all had a very happy Christmas! Here on the farm, our goats have been enjoying Christmas Treats of Christmas trees! The trees provide lots of fibre and offer a bit of enrichment. Our goats love a bit of forage and the trees are no exception. They were curious and cautious at first, but that didn’t last long!

We’d like to remind visitors that we do need to ensure our animals receive a balanced diet, so please refrain from feeding any trees or branches to our animals yourselves. And if you are visiting us over the holiday period, don’t forget to check our holiday opening times, which can be found here.

Our Anglo Nubian goats were the first on the scene.
