Activities on Longdown Activity Farm start at 10.30am with bottle-feeding the calves.
Throughout the day, children will get ample opportunity to meet the animals during activities such as bottle-feeding kid goats and small animal handling with rabbits, chicks, guinea pigs and sometimes even piglets!
Don't forget to see the cute Kune Kune pigs and hand feed the friendly ducks. There are plenty of other farm animals around the farm to meet:horses, donkeys and cows to name but a few.
Our 5 indoor and outdoor play areas will keep the children amused along with ride-on toys and our popular bumpy tractor and trailer ride (ground conditions permitting).
Pony rides during holidays and at weekends for under 8s. (Extra charge. Height and weight restrictions apply.)
Don't forget to check our website for details of our fabulous event schedule, which runs throughout the year.

We do strongly suggest you contact Longdown Activity Farm before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
