Book an alpaca walk with us (booking 48 hours in advance only) and experience the beautiful calmness of the Alpacas and the stunning vineyards, farmland and countryside as you walk them on an around our farm and vines.   The whole experience is approximately 1 hour, you will arrive and check in at reception where you will be warmly met and greeted and taken to one of our Alpaca handlers.  Here you will be given a short health and safety briefing and you will also have the opportunity to learn more about these amazing animals and where they come from.  You will also be able to ask any questions you may have about the animals or the experience. Once you have been partnered with your new alpaca chum your walk will begin – don’t forget to get your Alpaca Selfie and tag us in all your photos! Cost: £25.00 per Adult & £15.00 per child (under 18’s). Under 2’s are free but we can only allow one under 2 per 1 paying adult due to the fact that the supervising adult must hold the child’s hand as well as the alpaca. Please note that every child under 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Price includes admission to the farm.

Pig Races!

Our brand new Race Track is now open and we currently have seven adorable young ginger Tamworth pigelts running for you in the Daily Pig Races!

They are all full of energy and tonnes of personality, so when you visit us make sure you find your favourite, and cheer them on!

We have: Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Gunther!!! Look out for their "Racing Names" on the board on the Race Track before they start and the Farm Staff will tell you the winner at the end of each race!

Races are daily at 11:30am and 2:30pm (at Weekends and during School Holidays) and at 2:30pm only Monday - Friday during Term Time, so get down to the track to cheer on your favourite Piggie - look out for the board which shows the F.R.I.E.N.D.S 'racing names!'

Our infamous Pig Races have been featured on both BBC3’s Don’t Tell the Bride in 2014 as well as Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me. They prove a big hit on the television as well as with our guests. Make sure you check our Daily Activity Timetable below before you visit so you don't miss it!

Tractor Rides on Cholderton Charlie!

“Cholderton Charlie” is our wonderful Fordson Major tractor and the star of the show!

Tractor rides run twice a day at Weekends and during School Holidays at 12pm and 3pm and at 12pm only Monday - Friday during Term Time. Tractor Rides are an additional £1 per person and under 2's ride for free!

Please call before you visit to ensure the Tractor Rides are operating on the day of your visit. Some days he is running and some days he isn't (mechanical issues can be common) so check before you visit if it's something you're really keen to do!

Originally designed and built in 1955 (so he's now over 60 years old!), he’s been providing tractor rides for us with his trusty trailer for over 30 years now, so understandably he can be temperamental at times, especially when it comes to warming his engine up during the chilly winter months!

Animal Handling Sessions

Animal food is available to purchase in the shop upon arrival (£1 per bag) and throughout the day so you can feed the animals carfeully yourselves but we also run our Animal Handling Sessions once or twice a day (depending on the season), and is the perfect opportunity for guest's to get up close and personal with some of our most loved animals!

From chicks, rabbits and guinea pigs to our brand new tortoises, little lambs and goats, it gives you and your little ones some quality time and hands on experiences with our lovely animals.

Animals may vary between sessions but if there is an animal you would particularly like a cuddle with, then please let us know, and we will do our best to help!
