Mornings on the Farm – CURRENTLY ON HOLD

There’s just something about Goats wouldn’t you agree?!

Come and join us for a morning on the farm! The more visitors we get through our gates the stronger my conviction is that there is no other animal that provokes a story, experience or opinion in everyone like the Goat! With this in mind we thought it would be nice to offer you a unique opportunity to spend a morning on the farm with our Boys.

Come spend time with these completely unique and fascinating animals, learn about how we look after our goats and get stuck in with some of the daily chores (if you want to!). There is never a dull moment with goats their natural curiosity means that they will have just as much fun sussing you out as you them!

The morning will start with brew and a bacon butty. These mornings are great for families or a group of friends, and are suitable for all ages. All you need to do is wear clothes you don’t mind being chewed and bring your sense of humour!


These mornings are flexible, to discuss options and dates please drop Lizzie a line.
