Farmer’s Day


Children aged 8 to 14 can help the Longdown team run the Farm for a day. Under the watchful eyes of our qualified staff, young farmers will enjoy a good day’s work and lots of fun! This might include tasks such as cleaning out the pigsties, grooming ponies or mixing goat feed. In fact, doing whatever a real farmer has to do.



Book Well in Advance.

Farmer’s Days must be booked well in advance as they are very popular. They are available to children aged between 8 and 14 years. We regret that because of our insurance cover we cannot take children under 8 years.

Suitable protective clothing and footwear must be worn. Expect clothes (and child) to get dirty!

The cost is £60.00 per child for the whole day.

Please note that we will require a £20.00 deposit on the day of booking to secure a place, which is non-refundable if the booking is cancelled less than 48-hours before the Farmer’s Day.

At the end of the day each child is presented with a certificate of merit – assuming they have earned it by working very hard!
