Tucked away in the serene village of Farnsfield lies White Post Farm, a pastoral gem that has been captivating the hearts of families and school groups for over thirty years.
With more than 25 acres of lush Nottinghamshire landscape to explore, the farm provides an extensive day out filled with educational fun, interactive experiences, and a personal encounter with the countryside’s rhythm and creatures.
A Day at the Farm
The adventure begins the moment visitors step onto the farm, where they can meet and mingle with over 3,000 animals.
There’s a remarkable range of farmyard friends to encounter—from the soft, woolly sheep and the gentle clucking of hens to the inquisitive goats and the lazy lounging of pigs in their pens.
But it’s not just your typical farm dwellers that call White Post Farm home.
Exotic species like reptiles and an array of birds add to the farm’s diverse inhabitants, ensuring there’s always a new friend around every corner.
White Post Farm excels in providing hands-on experiences. It invites young ones and adults to engage in feeding sessions, where they can hold a bottle for the greedy goats or scatter feed for the ducks waddling by the pond.
One of the most cherished experiences is the animal holding sessions—where visitors can cradle a silky chick or stroke a bunny, fostering an emotional bond and understanding of these animals.
Learning and Education
The farm prides itself on its educational offering. Staffed by a dedicated team of animal caretakers and educators, they ensure every visitor leaves with a deeper understanding of farm life.
Regular talks and demonstrations, such as milking or shearing, provide insights into the daily care of farm animals and the importance of agriculture in our everyday lives.
No two visits to White Post Farm are the same, thanks to a calendar bursting with seasonal events.
In the spring, the farm is abuzz with the arrival of newborn lambs and the chance to witness the miracle of birth.
Summer brings outdoor picnics and the joy of young animals taking their first steps in the open fields.
Autumn is a spectacle of harvest hues, with Halloween events that are more charming than chilling.
Come winter, White Post Farm transforms into a wonderland, with festive activities that warm the soul, like meeting Santa in his grotto.
