  • The Ark open farm is a wonderful family day trip. Bring your own picnic, there are plenty of picnic tables or buy food from the farm cafe. It also caters for birthday parties and school outings. Children will get the chance to pet, handle and feed animals; rabbits, kids goats, chicks, tarantulas. There are toilets and plenty of hand washing stations and a gift shop. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
