As the Highway Hill site is situated right next to a working farm, we are lucky enough to be accompanied by a variety of animals, including geese, pygmy goats, horses, donkeys, rabbits, guinea pigs and even alpacas! With so many personalities on site, it would be a shame to keep them locked away from the general public. All of the animals are friendly and trained to work with adults and children of varying abilities, and welcome being touched and played with (with permission from Farmer Dave of course!).
Our on-site petting farm is run by our associate Dave Buscombe of Dave and Ewe, and doubles as a site for his animal handling sessions, for children and adults, including those with autism and special needs, which can be held both as group and individual sessions. Dave has already hosted group school sessions in the farm with big plans for the future of 2018.
