Animal Adoption Day

Come along to the farm to an exciting Animal Adoption Day, and choose your favourite farmyard friend to adopt and care for.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Make a real difference to our rare breed animals and receive a farmtastic package that lasts all year, with regular updates on your adoptee. You will be spoilt for choice whether to adopt Emily our gorgeous Golden Guernsey goat, Sensation our splendid Shire horse or Martha our perfect Middle White pig.

Emily is now 6 years old and loves to meet people, she especially loves a piece of carrot and you might be lucky enough to feed her some.

You will be able to stroke Sensation, learn about her horsey family at Tatton and even get to help clean some of the harness she wears whilst she is in training.

We will be letting Martha out of her pen so you will be able to get up close and personal with this very rare breed of pig, and learn about her and the piglets she has had.

Our adoption gift pack makes the perfect gift for yourself or the animal lover in your life. The gift pack will be available to buy for £35 which helps pay for the care of Emily, Sensation and Martha.
