From September to March, Lorraine  dedicates her time to Small Animal Road Shows. She will come out to schools, nurseries, nursing homes, playgroups, anywhere you ask. 


Our Creepy Crawly Loft is full of reptiles, minibeasts and some cuddly animals too so children can get up close with something a bit different and see animals they may have never seen before.


The Ark Farm is home to approximately two hundred animals of all kinds - cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, goats, donkeys, alpacas, ponies and many more. All are so tame and friendly.
