Calling all animal lovers this summer!

Barleylands Farm Park is seeking animal lovers to come down and meet all the animals this summer, enjoy an action-packed day filled with animal encounters!

With more animal encounters and hands on experiences than ever before, the school holidays just aren’t long enough to fit it all in!

Each week at Barleylands, throughout the summer, you’ll find new animal encounters and craft activities will be unveiled, meaning it’s worth coming weekly, just to make sure you don’t miss out on all the wholesome family fun on offer.

Animal adventures include donkey grooming, animal races, lamb bottle feeding, reptile talks and the magnificent Imperial Birds of Prey flying display shows. Not to forget bird spotting in the aviary, pony pampering, visiting Annie and Flora the Highland Cattle in their new home, holding our cute and fluffy baby chicks and meeting the range of animals around the farm.

Barleylands Farm Park Manager, Charlotte Goodman, commented: “The summer holidays at Barleylands are going to be the best yet!  We’ve got so many exciting hands on activities and encounters taking place on the farm – with a strong focus this year on getting up close to the animals.  Come and see our new Eagle at Imperial Birds of Prey, pamper the ponies, meet our new chicks, watch the animal races and so much more.”

Charlotte added:  “Why not get a Barleylands Annual Pass, to make the most of summer on the farm and enjoy all the usual Barleylands favourites as well as our fun summer programme?  An annual pass lets you come back time after time, with everything included in the price.  It is one of the best times down on the farm and a great way to make the most of the school holidays and enjoy some hands on fun! So make sure you come and pay us a visit or two!”

With a host of craft activities also taking place, including making windmills, seed planting, biscuit decorating and face painting, the fun begins when you arrive, and best of all its all included in the price!

Don’t forget our huge range of indoor and outdoor activities including our popular bouncy pillow, ball blaster zone and tractor rides.
