ANNUAL\MONTHLY PASS HOLDERS
We will add the time we are closed on to your pass. In this time of difficulty, we understand if you need to cancel your pass. However, while the farm is closed we will have no income, the payments will help look after the animals and help secure a future for the farm. We thank you for your loyalty.

We just want to say this is not just a business to us this is our family and our staff’s livelihoods. We are so truly heartbroken to have to make this decision by a situation that is totally out of our control.
