Where are we going today?
Oh deer - what have we here! A Deer Farm!
Seeing a deer in the wild is a "quick get the camera!" moment. Seeing a deer in the Deer Farm is a "quick, I want to go and hug it, and let it eat out of my hand!" moment!
It's a great place to bring kids to teach them about animals, and how we all interact with them.
We see them as these timid, wild creatures, where here they are so gentle natured and calm, and used to humans so are happy to be patted, stroked and fed - fight out of your hand!
You can sit among them, watch them from afar, give them a great big hug...up to you!
It's not just deer there either! They have other sweet and beautiful animals ready to play with you, including Reindeer, birds, wallabies, marmosets, mini cattle, and even a camel and bison!
If you just LOVE spending time with the animals, perhaps you might want to try and be a junior zoo keeper for the day? You can experience a unique behind the scenes look at feeding and taking care of the animals, taught by the wonderful animal loving staff. All the animals will have been hand raised, so all those mini Junior Zoo Keepers will be in safe hands. The experience is 4 hours long and unless you are siblings, they book one child at a time.
Don't forget to wear some old clothes though - they can't guarantee the animals might not try and have a nibble on your shirt!

All year round, but winter hours are weather permitting
There is certainly feed for the animals for you to buy there! You mustn't bring in outside food though, especially to feed the animals because they eat different things to you and us! .
Any Top Tips?
Feed for the animals is available for purchase at the Deer Farm at time of entry.
Some of the animals are very curious and have a habit of chewing on people's clothes, shoe laces, and even hats, so don't wear your favourites..
Can I get one of those?
There is a great gift shop with lots of items for animal lovers, as well as shirts, and gift wares. We're afraid you won't be able to take a real deer home with you though, as much as you might fall in love with them.....
Make sure you bring your camera! .

This is a awesome place.... And you can take the whole family and the cost won't set you back a arm and a leg.

To have a chance to feed the deer and watch them up close was amazing. My kids had so much fun spending time with all of the animals, we could have spent an entire day there. Looking forward to a 4th visit soon!
