This will be a party to remember for your birthday child and all their friends. Parties get a dedicated tour guide who will make sure your child gets special attention as they meet the animals. They become farmer for the day!
The party lasts approximately 2 hours and there's time allocated for play beforehand should you wish to arrive a little earlier.
All parties include our traditional farm tour plus special activities depending on your party choice. We've a Tractor Trailor Ride and Digger Play Party a Sit-on a Pony Party, A Farmer's Games or Crafts Party and a Creepy Critter or Birds of Prey Party. YOU CHOOSE, depending on the age and interest of your child.
For the last part of the 2 hours you get your own party barn for the included birthday meal. This is kept cosy in the winter with a wood burning stove. You can also extend the duration of your party by adding a disco (certain slots only) or a visit to the Big Play Barn: see Party Prices for details.
