January – November: Entry to the open farm is FREE.
December: During the Reindeers stay at our farm, there will be an entrance charge per person to our open farm. Customers are asked to pay in the Farm Shop, where they can also purchase their playbarn entry (playbarn prices remain unchanged).
Please note: we work incredibly hard to protect the free entry to the open farm, and remind customers that only food and drink bought on site is consumed on site. This includes the car-park, animal paddocks and outside play area, and all year round. We will politely ask anyone with their own food and drink to put it away. This policy is in place all year round.
