Mulberry Bush’s Big Day Out!
16 May 2013
We have lots of school and nurseries coming to see us at the moment. Yesterday Mulberry Bush Day Nursery brought two classes for a guided tour.
They had a great day! Teacher Venetta Kohut told us that Vicky and Nigel our Farm Guides, told them all about the animals.
We had a brilliant day. Even the grown ups learnt lots of interesting things. We can’t wait to come back!
They held some baby animals, joined in the Goat Milking demonstration and met some creepy crawlies. They stayed all day long so the children even had time to play. I bet they were worn out!
If your school would like to book into one of our educational packages just give us a call – 01623 882977

Manx twins get a new nanny!
19 April 2013
Lambing season is now over but not before a nice surprise from the Silver Barn.
The last ewe to give birth was a Manx – a very pretty breed. Unfortunately the twins that she had could not feed properley from their mum so we had to find a solution. With no spare udders from the other new mums we turned to Geraldine, a very friendly Golden Guernsey goat.
After a short period of introduction, Geraldine fell in love with the twins and they are now a very happy family. Well done Geraldine! They never stray far from their new mum and all three sleep together in a little lamb – goat huddle.
We would like you, our visitors to suggest names for the twin lambs so please visit our facebook page to post your ideas. The family are living together in the Silver Barn where you can meet them everyday!
Hope to see you soon, down on the farm.
One at a time mummy!

Please note: This video is of live lamb birth. It’s a beautiful thing to see but it’s not for the faint-hearted
During lambing time the Silver Barn is very busy with lots of new borns everyday. It keeps our Farmers very busy as they have to make sure all the ewes and lambs are ok.
This morning Farmer Simon had to help out one of the Dorset ewes, Deirdre, when she tried to give birth to two little lambs at once. Ouch! Happily Farmer Simon was on hand to help out and both lambs were born safely. He then had another surprise as he realised Deirdre was having triplets! Cool!
We captured the moment the third lamb was born and some of our visitors were lucky enough to see the drama unfold. All three are looking fit and strong and already playing together.
There are lots of ewes still to give birth so come on down to the farm to see some of the magic of Spring for yourselves.
A Spot of Spring Cleaning!

Willow, our beautiful, Albino Burmese Python has just shed his skin so he looks shiny and new for all his visitors.
Willow shed over night using a rock in his enclosure to peel off his skin – almost in one piece. Wow! In the picture you can see what a difference it makes with his old skin compared to his vibrant new colours. He is just over 12 feet long and his nice new enclosure means he can stretch out, explore and bath in his pool.
He is proudly on display in the Reptile House, showing of his nice new skin – everyday.
Spring has Sprung!
07 March 2013
The first sign of spring here at the farm is lambing – and it has well and truly begun!
The Silver Barn is experiencing a real BABY BOOM! We now have lambs, calves and our latest arrival, a Cria, which is a baby llama. It’s a wonderful time of year with so much beautiful new life making the farm exciting and vibrant.
It means Easter is around the corner, a great chance to meet some of the babies up close. There are lots of ewe’s ready to give birth in the Silver Barn’s ‘maternity ward’ so if you are planning a visit very soon, there’s good chance you will see a birth before your very eyes! Cool!
Hope to see you all this spring,

Cool hair style, and that’s snow joke!
21 January 2013
Alpacas are from South America but ours have been enjoying some very English weather!
Our Alpacas, Rainbow and Barrow, have been happily exploring their newly snow-filled paddocks over the last few days.
They have still been very excited to see our visitors and galloped to the fence to accept the grass nuts on offer! They are beautiful animals and as you can see from Rainbow’s picture they have very cool hair styles! They are very friendy, gentle animals always ready to say hello.
The Alpacas are in the paddocks along with lots of other four-legged friends all ready to meet you. We are open every single day so pop down to meet some of our fabulous farm characters!
Hope to see you soon,
Ben & Holly & Archie!

Ben and Holly met hundreds of their fans today, here at the Farm.
One of their fans was lucky enough to bottle feed our baby goats – Marley, Matilda and Hagrid. They all did a great job. Archie (He’s the one in the middle) is from Eastwood and was clearly a natural at feeding the goats! Well done Archie!
We all had such a good day and Ben and Holly were lots of fun (and a little mischievous! )
Hope to see you all down on the farm soon to celebrate Christmas with us!
Beautiful Baby Bunnies!

Baby rabbits are among the very cutest animals here at the Farm.
We have a whole host of baby rabbits in our Silver barn, running around and playing happily together.
These little ones are all for sale and in need of good homes so if you would like one we are now taking reservations. We have both Mini Lops and Netherland Dwarves and they are just six weeks old.
Simply call 01623 883312 and talk to our Pet Shop team.
