Things to do at Green Dragon Eco Farm review
Vicky says – This is my favourite local open farm. I’ve been visiting ever since it opened some years ago and we’ve never had a bad visit. It has the perfect balance of price and facilities. There is a good variety and number of animals on the farm.
You have your typical farm animals such as sheep, cows, goats and pigs, some of which you can feed by hand. There’s not just one or two of each though, there are loads. They’ve also got some less typical animals including a chameleon, bearded dragon and stick insects.
They do regular sessions where you can hold some of these animals. There’s also rabbits, horses, donkeys, chickens and ducks. The “farm animals” part of Green Dragon is very large and there’s a walk you can do around the perimeter which takes a fair amount of time to do.
Last year they opened their wildlife zone. This is excellent and has animals such as the red squirrel, reindeer, lynx, wallabies, silver fox and lots of birds. They’re now able to do flying shows with the birds and they’re using the zone as a conservation area.
Non-animal related facilities outside are go-karts, ride-on tractors, a really good adventure playground, toddler playground, a bouncing pillow and massive sand-pits. Inside there’s a sandpit with a dinosaur fossil hidden in the sand and a soft play frame. This isn’t a massive frame but it’s clean and the kids enjoy it.
Please note – Most places may still require you to pre-book online in advance. Some venues also still have certain areas closed for safety reasons. Please check their website and/or social media pages before visiting.
