What’s on at the Family Farm...  

Enchanted Woodland Colouring Competition - Our craft room will be set up and ready for any budding artists to colour in a masterpiece to enter in our daily colouring competition. The Family Farm team will announce a winner each day on their Facebook page so keep your eyes peeled for the chance to win free return entry (for one child) and a free bag of animal food!

We'd also recommend bringing a change of clothes and a towel for the little ones.
