Fancy being a Farmer or Pony Owner for the Day?

Framed-pig

Your child can work alongside a member of our Farm Staff, helping to feed and muck out our animals and ponies!

The day will start earlier than our normal opening hours at 9.00am.

Please note: your child will be working alongside a member of staff. Parents, please be advised that you cannot accompany your child on this experience, however you are welcome to stay on the Farm and enjoy our Cafe facilities. If your child is not happy to spend the day with a member of our staff, then this experience is not for them!

We will provide Farmers and Pony Owners with lunch which they can enjoy in the cafe. Parents are welcome to meet them for lunch!

Please ensure that your child/children is suitably dressed in old clothing, suitable for the weather. If hot, sun-cream and hats. If cold and wet, waterproofs and layers.

Footwear should be sturdy walking boots, yard boots or wellies.

To book, please email us at info@blackberry-farm.co.uk  to find out more information.
