The optional farmland walk covers fields so wellies or stout footwear is required to participate in this activity. Unfortunately as the walk crosses fields and uneven ground it is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs.
If any women are pregnant they should also be aware of the risks of being around farm animals, in particular lambs and sheep. Whilst we don’t lamb any sheep on site there will be young lambs within the paddocks and women should be aware of the risks involved and make their own decision as whether to attend this event or not.

Please note that this is a family ticket and admits the whole family to the event. However only 1 adult over the age of 18 and with a valid UK driving licence, from the group can participate in the tractor driving experience.
