FOLLOWING GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE WE ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC BUT OPERATING ALONGSIDE A COVID RISK ASSESSMENT that has seen us introduce one way systems, additional sinks and hand washing and measures such as a ‘Clean Team’ sanitising hand contact areas and keeping the farm safe and clean.
We are NOT currently doing the daily Animal Encounter timetable with meet a reptile or goat walking. Don’t worry we are exploring a way to bring this back for the ‘new normal’ and will revisit this after the next phase of the government ‘roadmap’. Until we are sure we can re-introduce the animal handling sessions without creating additional unnecessary queues, then we will continue to take them off our daily timetable. Instead at the moment our offering is 2 amazing Falconry shows at 11am & 1pm

As you will expect, Christmas at Tattershall Farm Park will look and feel very different this year, but having spoken to Father Christmas, his helpers (East Lindsey District Council) and our Farm Park team, we’re sure we have something which will leave families feeling festive and give a little bit of (Covid Secure) normality on the run up to Christmas.
Instead our our usual Woodland Nordic Grotto and a personal meeting with Santa, we are offering a Father Christmas & Friends Parade.
On arrival, we give each family a squirt of magic elf sanitiser, get you scanned in and issue wristbands to the children (which you hand in to one of Santa’s helpers when you collect your wrapped Christmas gift.
Father Christmas will be pulled on his sleigh by a small vintage tractor. You’ll see polar bears, penguins and snowmen on your way round the farm and we’ll have a Christmas Unicorn joining in the parade too.
You can either bring your own letter for Santa from home and post it, or collect a pen and a letter from us on arrival so you can write your letter while you are with us and then post it.
You’ll get to meet Samba and Jazz our Real Reindeer – they always live on our farm, and love it when Santa is staying as they get to dress up with their jingle bells.
You will take part in a Candy Cane hunt spread out all over our Farm, and receive a small treat if you solve the clues.
Santa’s Helpers will be handing out the Christmas gifts this year.
We will have outdoor food stalls providing traditional festive fare like Hot Pork and Stuffing Baps, Soup, Freshly Baked Belgian Waffles, Hot Chocolate and Mulled Wine.
We hope that you will come and support us, our animals are missing you and by the time we re-open on the 5th we will have been closed for a total of 135 days so will be good to see some friendly faces.
Father Christmas and Friends Parade
5th, 6th, 12th, 13th and 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd and Christmas Eve
