Farm Christmas Fair – 8th December 2018
The Farm’s annual Christmas Fair will run from 11am-4pm on Saturday 8th December. Entry to the Farm will be free as usual but we’ll be charging for our activities to raise much needed unrestricted income to keep the Farm running all year round.
Our farmyard is set to be transformed with local craft stalls selling all sorts of Christmas gift ideas. The ever popular Peach Brandy sold by the local Church stall will be in attendance. Get there early!
Warm up in our river room and get creative making your own Christmas wreath.
The bar will be serving mulled wine and warm spiced apple juice and we’ll have home-made soup on sale.
Christmas Tree Sale
Our real Christmas Tree sale will be back by extremely popular demand. We have three sizes on sale to fit all budgets (and bus rides home!). Based on our sellout year last year we suggest you arrive at 11am to avoid disappointment. For more information about our trees click here.
Father Christmas will be back this year taking orders from excited kids. His elves have promised to keep him supplied with mince pies and ensure every child gets a present. (£4 per child).
Support the Farm by buying a strip of raffle tickets on sale in the Farm Shop (£1 per strip). Winners will be drawn at 4pm at the Fair. Huge thanks to all the local organisations who have given fantastic raffle prizes – we’ll be listing them all here shortly so you can see what’s up for grabs!
Our Plot to Shop group will be running fair games such as Hook the (tinsel-clad) Duck and Hoop the Reindeer (a staff member in a onesie, not a real reindeer!). We’ll also have a wonderfully talented facepainter in the plant room!
The whole Farm will be open as usual so you can wonder around and say hello to all our animals and purchase bags of feed from the shop to feed the goats, sheep, pigs and poultry.
In addition our livestock team will be creating a special area where you can go in with our smaller animals – including rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, turkeys, chickens etc – for cuddles and strokes! (£1 entry).
We’ll also be offering donkey rides on the lovely Alice and Hermione along the Thames (£2 a ride for under 8’s).
