A unique and fun, hands on experience for children and adults of all ages, Big Sheep & Little Cow Farm provide animals lovers with the chance to hold and feed the animals. Be guided around by one of the farms friendly animal handlers, starting in the Victorian Kitchen with a brief health and safety chat, before going on to meet some of the farm’s most popular characters.
Meet Bessie and her five piglets which you can scratch and pat as you watch them frolic around. Feed a hungry lamb, calf, or piglet from a bottle (seasonal) or pre-book to have a ride on one of the farm’s ponies. Finally meet some of the farm’s more unusual inhabitants, like their very own hedgehog! During school holidays and weekends, take a ride on the barrel train which is led by a tractor, taking you around the farm without getting your shoes muddy!
Give the animals a break and watch as your kids let off some steam in the indoor adventure play area ‘Wooly Jumpers’ with slides, rope swings, tunnels and more! Time for the parents to sit back and enjoy fresh, locally sourced ingredients and products at the Wooly Jumper café, including the delicious ice-cream which is made on sight.
