BECOME A FARMER FOR THE DAY!
2024 DATES ARE NOW AVAILABLE TO BOOK
Bookings no longer taken by telephone, please follow the simple instructions below.
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 collecting the morning eggs, preparing the feed/milk bottles for the goats and calves and helping with the animal feeding activities during the day. In fact, doing whatever a real farmer has to do. At the end of the day each child is presented with a certificate of merit – assuming they have earned it by working very hard!
We will do our best to secure your first choice date, but please note that due to demand, your preferred date may not be available, in which case, a small choice of alternative dates will be offered.
IMPORTANT: Please note that vouchers are non-refundable and must be redeemed during the season named on the voucher.
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 £75.00 per child for the whole 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!
A note for parents and carers:
So that your child has the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in their Farmer’s Day experience, we politely ask that once you have dropped them off and settled them in that your child is left to enjoy the day on their own alongside our capable team who will ensure that the little farmer is safe and well-cared for.
We ask that you arrive promptly at 5pm to collect your child at the end of their busy day.
