Do you offer family pass?
YES, you can pre purchase a family pass for two adults and two children.
Do you take animals that need a home? (e.g. rabbits, rooster, sheep etc.)
At Animal Land our mission is to provide our animals with the room and environment they need to ensure they live a happy and comfortable life. We care deeply for all our animals so sadly we are unable to accept the many requests we receive to adopt additional animals to the farm, as we simply do not have sufficient space to accommodate them.
The sad truth is, if we attempt to provide sanctuary for every single animal that came our way, the reality is we would be of no service to either the animals in our care or the not so fortunate animals for whom we are an advocate. The physical, financial, logistical and emotional duty would cripple us and diminish the care we were able to provide the hundreds of animals we already care for.
Do I have to book before I come?
While it’s not mandatory to book it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you book to avoid disappointment.
This is because we have strict limits on the amount of visitors on-site, to ensure everyone enjoys a hands on farm experience.
