Can I visit the Farm if I am Pregnant?

It is advised that pregnant women do not come in to contact with the placenta of newly born lambs during the lambing season, as it is the placenta which carries the risk of Toxoplasmosis.

At Attell Farm Park our ewes give birth to their lambs out in the field and are only brought in to the animal barn when completely dry, therefore it is safe to visit the farm while you are pregnant.

We have a full daily timetable of Animal Events and Demonstrations for you to enjoy. The timetable includes lots of opportunities to feed our animals, but please do not feed them outside of these set demonstration times. Our animals have a carefully balanced diet and it’s not good for them to ‘snack’ in between meals.

Please remember that Human food is not suitable for them.

Can I bring a picnic?

Yes! We have a range of picnic tables in the farm park, with little ones for the children too!

Can I book in a group or School?
