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!
