It’s party time as we celebrate our 35th ‘Folly-versary’!
Can you believe we first opened our doors on 17th July 1988? We’ve certainly come a long way since our days as a working dairy farm, where guests could watch the cows getting milked in the parlour.
When it came to diversifying – our Founding Directors, Glyn and Anne Williams, certainly didn’t hold back.
Throw in Europe’s biggest undercover vintage fairground, over 700 species of exotic, endangered (or simply unusual) zoo animals, a Pembrokeshire Big Wheel, Go Kart race track, Land Train tractor ride, huge array of themed adventure play areas and a five star Holiday Park with luxury lodges, hot tubs and quirky glamping – and you get an idea of how busy we’ve been over the years. With plenty of laughter, hard work, reinvestment and awards along the way!
That same vision and drive that led our directors to open their doors back in 1988 has certainly remained in the family who are still very much at the helm – and has helped inspire our fantastic Folly Farm team, to create the award winning attraction you know and love today.
We love hearing stories from our guests who visited as a child and now visit with their own children or grandchildren. With a long standing commitment to reinvesting and offering something new for our guests each year, you can see just how farm we’ve come since the early days.
To celebrate our Folly-versary – staff (and animals) will be tucking into some yummy treats! We’ve also had a beautiful birthday cake made by the fabulously talented Cake Fairy, Pembs.
