Hello All!

Scary Mary here…

We have been so busy on the Wooly Farm especially now that winter is over. I am so excited that spring has finally arrived! It’s definitely one of my favourite times of the year as there is so much happening and even more to look forward to.

The double-headed snowdrops have started to appear and this is always a sign that new life is soon to come. These gorgeous flowers have been growing on the farm for over 350 years in the same spot!

Many of the animals have smelt spring in the air too, and have been busy having their babies. The Geese have been laying their eggs, and we are delighted that our black Zwartble 2 year old sheep – Spot has just had two lovely new born lambs. Lambs are so resilient; they just get up, feed from their mother and go! New chicks have arrived as well, so it’s been an absolute feast of cuteness around here.

Now that it is new-born season at the farm, bookings for mobile birthday parties are filling up fast, so don’t forget to organise a special Wooly Wards experience for your party with our mobile farm!

In other news we are all busy preparing for our big Easter event, and have started laying down some lines and rhymes for our Easter show in the animal theatre.  Come to the Easter Extravaganza at the Wooly Farm and you will get to see all the newborn cuties and enjoy a fabulous show from our amazing staff.

That’s all for now folks, talk soon!

Love Scary Mary.

Hello to Everyone & a belated New Year

We are looking forward to a busy year with lots of events both on the farm & bringing the Mobile Farm to many venues. The exciting news this week is that on February 1st we will be launching our latest themed event on the farm ‘’The Easter Extravaganza’’ running from March 23rd – March 28th. More news to come on that soon.

We are also announcing the first Wooly Ward’s Easter Camp during the holidays. If your child loves animals, this is the camp for them. Animal Care, Cookery, Arts & Crafts & Outdoor Pursuits will be some of the activities covered. Camps run the week of March 21st & March 29th.

All the animals are doing well – it’s a difficult time of year for them with the weather conditions, so well done to all of the animal care team who mind them so well. Tilly, Mary Kate, Ashley and Alphie were all scanned pregnant last week. We are so looking forward to baby kid goats soon. Lincoln our 3yr old sheep is going to have twins as is Socks who is on her first pregnancy.

Oscar the hedgehog is just back from his holidays with Vivian his partner so fingers crossed there will be new spikes very soon!!

The hens are starting to lay eggs again & the ducks are busy at it too. I have to say I love a duck egg at breakfast. We have three nursing bunnies at the moment with Bambie mothering a massive ten babies’ and I thought I was bad with seven!

Well done to team members Callum, Luke & Sean who passed their Theory Test last week & begun their driving lessons under the Wooly Driving Licence Programme.

A Happy Birthday to all of the Birthday Boys & Girls celebrating this week.

Keep Smiling.

Scary Mary.

A great day in NUI Galway!

We made our annual visit to NUI Galway yesterday for their Charity Cake Sale and Pet Farm Visit. The students loved all of the animals especially Chili and the baby bunnies!
