Meet Rascal - NEW ARRIVAL!
On Easter Sunday 2021 we welcomed 'Rascal' to the farm park. We are very pleased that he has settled in very well and is enjoying the company of all the other horses. He may not be as big as the heavies but he sure does make up for it in character! We look forward to you meeting him this season!
NEW for 2021 - Dorset Horses, Adventure Play
Despite the many challenges the farm park faces due to Covid-19, we felt that we could not allow it stand in the way of delivering you the best day out we possibly can. We look forward to children embracing their sense of adventure with outdoor recreation during 2021 after months of isolation. Let's hope we have a brighter year ahead!
Suffolk Punch - Critically Endangered
Sadly, there are now less than 300 Suffolk Punches registered in the UK. The Suffolk Punch is the oldest breed of heavy horse to exist in its present form. It is vitally important that we not only look after the few which remain today and support the conservation of the Heavy Horse but also raise awareness.
