Farmer Palmer's is where young adventurers can frankly ‘let their hair down’ without older children around to stifle their enjoyment! Designed specifically for children aged 0-8years, everything here is aimed at families with little ones.
We have now reintroduced indoor play in the Little Farmer's Fun Barn. We have a NEW coloured wristband system to help us deliver several sessions throughout the day with deep cleaning during lunchtime.
Acres of adventure and bucket loads of family fun! There are different animal activities every half hour, mix these with the many dedicated and natural play areas and you've got a full day of entertainment! See the cows being milked, bottle/hand feed lambs and goat kids, tickle a pig, groom a pony, cuddle a guineapig . . . there's so much to see and do, whatever the weather! To find out more about the events on offer daily, and throughout the year, pop over to Farmer Palmer's Website.
Farmer Palmer's team understand the needs of parents and grandparents with young children; there are low level handwashing facilities, plenty of toilets/baby changing areas, high chairs and breast feeding welcome. If you were to design a children's attraction, as a parent, this is what it would be like!
Farmer Palmer's is renowned for excellent customer service, brilliant children's birthday parties and great value Annual Passes, which are highly recommended for local families.
A warm welcome awaits you! Come and make some magical memories in the beautiful Dorset countryside!
