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.

Scary Mary & her family would like to thank everyone who visited the farm over the past week & enjoyed the Halloween Experience. We had as much fun as much fun as everyone else & hope to see you back next year! Now its time for sleep!!

Only 2 days to go!

Only 2 days to go until we open the gates for a full week of Halloween fun! We are all busy carving pumpkins and decorating the farm. Tickets are nearly booked out so book now!

Pumpkin Harvesting well underway in Fingal

It’s that time of year again when families nationwide are planning to decorate their homes with a pumpkin.

But for farmer Denise Buckley in Lispopple Swords, the yard is full of over 2000 newly harvested pumpkins ready to be delivered to Wooly Ward’s Farm for pumpkin carving over Halloween.

Denise is one of only two growers in North County Dublin who plant acres of pumpkins each year. This year the harvest is plentiful with the pumpkins having a great size. Denise puts it down to the mild weather conditions we have had over the growing season.

Just down the road from Denise, Mary Ward & her family (who happens to be a cousin of Denise’s husband) runs Wooly Ward’s Farm.

Wooly Ward’s Farm opened up in 2011 & offers visitors young & old guided activity tours of the farm throughout the year. Thousands of visitors have come in through the gates this year for school tours & days out & they are now expecting in the region of 5000 visitors over the week of Halloween.

Mary (known as Scary Mary at the farm) is looking forward to a fun packed Halloween Experience this year. “Apart from pumpkin carving, we have Owls from Newgrange Falconry, Reptiles, The House of Horrors, The Fuineamh Drum that was at Electric Picnic, our pantomime show – The Terrible Toothache staring Dracula & the three Witches – Mena, Mina & Mo and of course chocolate apple decorating as well”

Denise also supplies the 2000 apples needed for the chocolate apples & Scary Mary is delighted that she can guarantee her visitors home grown local produce from her cousins farm!
