Attraction Information

Come and take part in a feeding frenzy at White Elm Petting Farm, and let your little ones feed over 100 animals.

Grab a bucket at the entrance and your family will feel like celebrities. The animals will be lining up to meet you, and as you strut down that red carpet they’ll be sure to say thank you with a nay, a quack, or even an oink! All pellets are made from grass so they're super healthy.

After you’ve fed and pet the animals make your way over to the outdoor play area, and you’ll find a climbing frame, see-saw, and digger pit with sit on diggers. But if it’s too cold to be outside you can visit the indoor play barn. Where you’ll discover a soft play area, plenty of learning toys and a snack shack perfect for nibbles.
