Thank you for your comments. The Home page of our website advises - 'Hands On' 11 am & 2 pm - every day 'hands on' Meet the Animals workshops where you can handle and feed our friendly farm animals. Bottle and hand fed lambs and goat kids, wriggly pigs, chicks and chickens. Young animals, like young children, enjoy balanced/timely meal times. It is difficult for us to hold back feeding sessions for visitors who have not notified us of their late arrival. Visitors arriving midway through a session may, like these guests, not get the full flavour of the farm experience. Like going to a film, the theatre or any event where there is live action it is generally better to arrive before the advertised start time so that toileting and familiarisation with the whole farm site can be clearly understood. It would perhaps seem that this family, despite walking past our adventure playground during the very popular egg collecting activity, did not spend any time in this part of the farm. Our 11am and 2pm sessions are run at a relaxed pace. Arrival 10-15 minutes before the start of the 11am and 2pm activities is very good advice. Visitors arriving midway through the morning session are also very welcome to enjoy the 2pm session.
