Farm Club!

Our non-working farm is home to our happy animals and as animal lovers, a dream come true for us. We encourage little guests to learn about the amazing animals we have and to develop a respect and life-long love for them; how to behave quietly around them and how to handle them with sensitivity and gentleness. Our Farm Club is provided free of charge for all guests.

Daily Farm Club gives children staying here the opportunity to join in with the everyday routines of caring for the animals with supervised hands-on experiences in a safe environment. During off peak seasons we are open for educational school and pre-school visits where children from the local area can come & learn more about our animals - there will be a small charge for group visits. Simply contact us to find out the best times to come!

...friendly animals

From ponies to poultry each has their own personality and children visiting Country Ways always want to come back time and time again to see their favourites, so be warned!

Children love to learn about some of our more unusual animals, such as the alpacas and Comet our reindeer as they have very special adaptations and needs. Learning about reindeer shedding their antlers, the clicking sound they make as they walk and why alpacas are so good at protecting other livestock and the strange humming noise they make...

...create unique memories

The Farm is open at 10.00 every morning when you are welcome to join us for a farm experience. You will be able to meet all the animals, stroke some, help to feed some, collect eggs and learn about their care.

Our facebook page is kept up to date with new arrivals - in 2017 we welcomed baby miniature donkey Matilda and two miniature Shetland foals. We also bought a very special miniature shetland colt from Switzerland who will become our herd stallion one day and following a 'honeymoon' at the Somerset Reindeer Ranch, we hope our reindeer Comet will have a calf in 2018!

...educational fun,

Our two adult alpacas Ruby and Angelina are both tame and are trained to wear a halter and can be taken for walks on a lead. The two youngsters Maya and Inca are ready now to be weaned and their training will begin shortly.

Comet our tame reindeer is 7 years old and loves to be fed carrot sticks, fine green beans and mushrooms... but her absolute favourite treat is moss, specially shipped from Scandinavia - she is very sweet natured and friendly but doesn't always like to be touched.

...& wonderful experience!

With miniature ponies and donkeys, our reindeer, alpacas, ducks, chickens, geese and rabbits & a variety of wonderful wildlife including our resident Barn Owls, there is so much around us to delight all ages.

Everyone loves getting 'hands on' with the friendly animals or egg hunting & sometimes helping to lead the ponies and donkeys out to the field, it is no surprise that everyone loves to visit the farm.
