Farmer Palmer's Farm Park, Poole

4.5
Farmer Palmer's Farm Park caters to the under 8 crowd. A mix of indoor and outdoor attractions emphasizes nature and the farming life. You can start with the “deer safari” enjoyed from atop a tractor trailer. Woodland walks, pig racing, straw tunnels, and flight shows by Alan the Owl should also be on your list. Little ones will have access to calm, barnyard animals and may be able to feed them, depending on the time of day. Many exhibits are seasonal, so be sure to check with the visitors’ center to see what will be available during your trip.

  • A wonderful local attraction. Best visited in fine weather but very good even in cold or wet weather (I.e. at Christmas ). Can get very busy!  more »
  • grand children loved it (age 2 & 4)- loads to do and see from feeding lambs to sit n ride toys, to woodland walk and hay bale slides . a bit pricey but well worth a visit we spent approx 4 hrs there -...  more »
  • Visited this Spring with my Grandchildren, they liked feeding the lambs and goats. Watching a cow being milked was fascinating and they loved the tractor ride. The café was good value to.  more »

  • Thank you for the fab bump to baby pass, i will definitely be making the most of the next 3 months. Love the lambs, just a shame i can't take one home! All the staff were super friendly and there was a lovely atmosphere. Will be strongly considering an annual pass when this one runs out.
  • I haven't been to Farmer Palmer's for years, and I enjoyed it so much. Although the weather was bad, my grandchildren still had a wonderful time. The staff were so nice, friendly and helpful, and the animals all looked very well looked after. It was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday, and I will definitely be back for another visit, even without the children 😃
  • Had a really nice experience here, arrived early during opening. The animals seemed to have been just waking up but it wasn’t long until they were interacting. Its a small farm but such a great experience to be able to see the animals so close and be able to feed goats and hold gineau pigs I got to hold crunchy and pet nutmeg. Along with that you can ride a tractor and see cow milking. All the animals are kept after really well with nice coats and chickens big in size. Definitely worth it. Loved my time there. Parking is available on site as well.
  • The farm itself is pretty good had everything been open although being the winter months and things being closed it was just average, however the pricing remains the same as peak times. Following a pretty rude reply by owner: So, things that weren't available were: Tractor ride (even though owner suggested otherwise) Woodland walk Deer safari Pig racing Outdoor bouncy castle Pony rides Basically what was open was soft play, the indoor animals and a few farm animals. My frustration was as my son is
  • Fabulous place for young and old alike. We have been pass holders for the last 3 years - such amazing value...we go at least once a week. Makes it amazing value over the year. The staff are amazing - friendly and helpful and will always go the extra mile to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their visit. Food prices are reasonable in the Hen House Restaurant with good variety (even catering for allergy sufferers). Overall, a lovely interactive experience every time we go...bottle feeding lambs, cuddling guinea pigs and watching the cow being milked. Can't recommend Farmer Palmer's enough. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
