Special visitors Red Squirrel and Mole will help children complete the quiz trail to find chocolate treats and meet the Easter Bunny! The Farm is delighted to have thirty one playful newborn lambs, from the recent Lambing Live event. Thirteen expectant ewes have given birth and the lambs can be bottle fed by children throughout the day. There will be a programme of daily animal events including lamb feeding, egg collecting and pony grooming. There also a potting shed for children to plant their own seeds. Over the Easter school holidays children will be able to plant cress seeds for free with a competition for the wackiest cress head designs.
The National Forest Adventure Farm is a great family day out including animal encounters and outdoor and indoor fun. Outside you can explore the Funfield with pedal go-karts, crazy golf, giant jumping pillow, mini quad bikes and mini assault course. Inside the gigantic 3000sqm play barn, there are three levels of exciting adventure play equipment featuring demon drop slides.
