Please note: Our goat feeding experiences have finished for the 2023 season. Check back early in 2024 for the new goat feeding season. Or you can buy a gift voucher now and book in next year when we add the dates.
Enhance your day out at Folly Farm with our goat feeding experience – a one-off experience that includes a cuddly toy and a personalised certificate! If you purchase day entry with your goat feeding experience you can save up to £8.95 on our standard admission prices with our special discounted experience day ticket.
What happens on this experience?
It’s an exclusive opportunity to get up close to our goat kids, make up their bottles of milk and bottle feed them. You’ll be accompanied by a Jolly Farmer, and you’ll be standing inside our central farm animal pen in our Jolly Barn.
You’ll be welcomed by one of our Jolly Farmers and after a short briefing you’ll enter the pen. Our Jolly Farmers will provide you with bottles of pre-prepared milk and you’ll then give our goats their feed! Get ready to welcome some bouncy, hungry kids and prepare yourselves for what may be a messy feed – spilt milk and, because these babies aren’t potty trained, maybe even a bit of wee and goat poo!
This is also your chance to ask our expert animal care staff all about our goat herd. What milk do we feed them? How long is a goat kid a kid?
Your experience will last at least 20 minutes. It includes a souvenir cuddly toy goat and a certificate signed by your Jolly Farmer to take home so you can remember your special day.
Important: Pregnant women, or anyone who thinks they could be pregnant, should not take part in the experience or be the supervising adult.
