Come along to the petting farm in the Jolly Barn, where even the smallest children can see and touch some of our best-loved animals.
The Jolly Barn was once the farm’s dairy parlour, but now it’s a firm favourite with families. Part of our farm park, it’s the perfect place to introduce your little ones to farm animals for the first time.
Who’s in the Jolly Barn?
You’ll find almost every farm animal you can think of. From ferrets and fancy mice to miniature ponies, shire horses, donkeys and goats. They’re all in the Jolly Barn. And, of course, no farm would be complete without lambs, hens and chicks. You can also milk the cows – our lifelike plastic models!
Over the road, there’s Percy’s Piggery plus llamas, alpacas and more goats and sheep. So we have plenty of space for lots of children to enjoy. They’ll also learn something, too – about how these animals live, and the rare breeds we keep.
During our hands-on activities we supervise everyone carefully to keep them safe while they’re having fun. And we look after hygiene too, with plenty of hand-washing facilities. So you don’t have to worry.
