Whats On

Make friends in our Encounter Room

Learn, laugh and love every moment.

Every day whatever the weather,  there are activities taking place in our Encounter Room or out and about around the farm – all supervised by a friendly member of our Animal Care team.

 

These are fun, educational and wherever possible hands on.

 

Meet rabbits and guinea pigs in our Furry Friends Encounter.

 

Learn about reptiles, meet (and hold) our snakes, lizards, stroke Spike our Bearded Dragon and touch our Tortoises.

 

Some days you can even help us to feed our Ferrets, walk our Goats or bottle feed our baby calves!

We have Hawks, Owls, Vultures, Falcons and even a Bald Eagle and a Raven too.
 
All our birds are either in our flying team, or in training to join our flying team, so they get exercised and flown every single day of the week.
 
Head over at 10.15am where you’ll also have the chance to hold one of these majestic creatures on a glove, and of course take a selfie!

Flying Demonstrations take place at 11.00am, 1pm and 3pm and with showcase the natural flying or hunting styles of each of our different birds (schedule is weather dependent as some birds might like it windy, others prefer more still weather)
