Parties on the farm

On the day of your party, please arrive 15 minutes before the time your party starts. Your child’s presents will be collected from as guests arrive and stored in the party room for collection after the party.

If you have ordered a birthday cake or party bags, these will be in the party room ready for your arrival. If you are planning to bring your own birthday cake, this can also be left in the party room - if you’re bringing your own cake, please remember to bring your own candles and matches, along with a cake knife and serviettes if cutting for party bags.

The children’s party tea usually includes: selection of sandwiches (jam, ham and cheese), sausage rolls, cheesy rolls, crisps, a selection of fruit and vegetable sticks, mini fairy cakes, ice cream tubs, biscuits, plus jugs of water and squash. You can also upgrade to a hot food option for the children, as well as platters of food for your adult guests. We are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements, including allergies – please let us know about this when making the booking.

Each party guest is welcome to bring one adult. This is in addition to the four adults accompanying the birthday child. Please be aware that any party guests arriving with siblings or additional adults not included on the booking will be charged the full entrance price. Accompanying adults are required to stay with the party at all times and all children, in particular childcare and toileting, remain the responsibility of the adults in the party group for the duration of the party. 

For morning parties, you and your guests are welcome to stay on the farm after the party, until we close at 5pm.
