There’s farmyard fun for the whole family at Longdown Activity Farm. Join in with a daily schedule of hands-on activities that include bottle-feeding kid goats and calves, the Animal Encounter Barn, and duck feeding (social distancing rules will apply). There are lots of friendly animals to meet including donkeys, alpacas, cute chicks, Pygmy goats, Kunekune pigs, cows, and many more.

Explore in and around the farmyard buildings, there’s so much to see and do. Don’t miss the brilliantly bumpy tractor and trailer ride, which is free of charge (ground conditions permitting).
