Down at the Farm

Take a tractor ride around this fun farm to meet the cows and you will hear the bleating of sheep, barking prairie dogs and hoots of snowy owls.  Children can pet and stroke the animals in the farmyard and there is even a chance to be a mini zoo keeper. Seasonal activities include helping to feed the spring lambs and meeting the reindeer at Christmas.

There's more than just the animals to entertain the family at Down at the Farm; take a bumpy barrel train ride, jump on bouncy pillows and slide down huge inflatable slides and learn how to ride quad bikes.  It is a great place to learn about animals and also have an amazing amount of fun taking part in activities that are not the usual everyday routine, such as washing a pig!
