Childhood would be a lot less interesting without Beatrix Potter! The animal characters she created have captivated and fed the imagination of so many children across the world, which is a joy to see first hand when children get the opportunity to meet them at Willows Farm.
Our Spring Special programme runs until 3rd June. We’ll have three sheep shearing demonstrations every day with our shepherd Tuck, who’ll be giving our flock a makeover for the warmer weather. To mark the event, we’ve put together some fun facts about sheep and shearing. (more…)
We’re very excited about our new range of nature kits, which allow you to grow butterflies from caterpillars in your own home (or school). We’ve even had a go at growing them ourselves, and it’s been incredible to watch these tiny creatures develop into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies. (more…)
We have a fantastic event- Pumpkin Festival, where every child can pick their own pumpkin. We love eating seasonal food. So, during Autumn it has to be pumpkins! Here is a delicious recipe for pumpkin muffins. We love seeing your recreations of our recipes. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #willowsfarmpics when posting photos.
We recently celebrated the 18th anniversary of our beautiful miniature Shetland pony Golly’s arrival at Willows Activity Farm. It certainly has been 18 wonderful years!
Anna and Andrew re-homed Golly from the Royal Vet College back in 1999. His Mummy had been admitted with colic when Golly was just a few weeks old.
