Hello all!

I and everyone here at Wooly Ward’s Farm want to say a huge thank you to all our friends and visitors. 2016 was a momentous year as we had 20,000 visitors to our farm and 30,000 visitors to our Mobile Farm.

As we have so many families wishing to visit the farm, we now find ourselves in the position where we need to upgrade many facilities to give customers a better experience and to accommodate an even larger number. I’m afraid our little 300 year old farm wasn’t expecting such numbers!

For this reason, 2017 will be our year of reviewing and planning so we will not be hosting birthday parties or school tours here at the farm. I know this will disappoint many but hopefully we will see you again in 2018 for your party or school tour. I won’t know what to do with my weekends but my seven children are all very excited at the thought of spending more family time together.

However, we will be running the ever popular big events at the farm – Easter in April, the annual Teddy Bears Picnic in July, and our Halloween Extravaganza in October! We will update you with dates next month.

Of course we are still running our fabulous Mobile Farm! Our adorable animals are so excited to leave Wooly Ward’s Farm, and visit you for a change, at home or at work! Bookings are now fully open for hiring the Mobile Farm which is geared up and ready to go for any special occasion.

Wooly Ward’s Farm can’t wait to see all the Momma bears, Poppa bears and kiddie bears, and neither can all our cute critters!

See u all 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.
