Gather your herd and join us on Sunday 8th July for a day of fun activities on our special working farm. Come Rain or Shine it’s Farm Fayre time!
Our annual Farm Fayre event sponsored by Gripple is back with some fantastic new additions to keep your little ones busy throughout the day. Our NEW festival garden has a jam packed schedule of free activities including infant yoga, a mini mid-day rave with a special piggy guest, story time, sing and sign, performing arts workshops and even sensory sessions with a professional harpist courtesy of the very popular concerteenies! Help us decorate the garden by making giant flowers and butterflies to hang in the trees and plant in the ground! The festival garden will provide a magical experience where art, music and literature are entwined in a safe and beautiful outdoor space.
Peruse up to 70 local craft and farmers market stalls in our lambing barn whilst listening to the funky sounds of local groups such as the popular Birkdale Soul Band and Girls High Pop choir. Say hello to the exotic animals coming on the day and be sure to take the kids for a pony ride in the ménage.
The field will once again come alive (be sure to wear suitable footwear to the farm!) NEW for this year a pop up beach… yes on the farm! If the sun is shining you can chill out in a deckchair and let your little ones get creative building sand castles. There will be lots of street food and a pop up bar serving local ales, gins and bubbles PLUS a new main stage with live entertainment and a community arena with local dance groups performing.
Our large ‘GO OUTDOORS’ area will be bursting with FREE forest school activities such as den building, mud kitchen, fire lighting and creative art. Arborist Tree Care will be here demonstrating what amazing things can be done with a tree trunk, and you can sit and listen to our Whirlow farmer giving talks about the animals who live here, the workings of our farm and look at the various rare breeds and machinery on display. Static birds and a falconry show shouldn’t be missed and you can test your driving skills on our ‘have a go’ mini landies and book a test drive on a SUZUKI while cooing over the Mont'y of Sheffield stunning range on display.
Our outdoor play area will of course be open; we will have the usual rides and slides and face painting; and archaeological activities taking place around the farm plus much more!

We hope you will join us for the truly exciting family day out.
