What’s on at the Family Farm... 

Meet the Wentworth Easter Bunny - Our very own Easter bunny will be making an appearance in the farmyard at 11.45 am each day, so why not hop along and say hi and even get a photo!  

The Wentworth Easter Bunny will also be helping out with our daily egg & spoon race at 1.30 pm so if you’re visiting in the afternoon, they’ll still be an opportunity to say hello.

Easter Colouring Competition - Our craft room will be set up and ready for any budding artists to colour in a masterpiece to enter in our daily Easter colouring competition. The Family Farm team will announce a winner each day on their Facebook page so keep your eyes peeled for the chance to win free return entry (for one child) and a free bag of animal food! 

World Civet Day Thursday 4th April - In addition to our Easter activities, the Family Farm will also be celebrating the civet species throughout the school holidays in honour of the first ever World Civet Day which is taking place on Thursday 4th April. 

Civets are small cat-like animals native to Asia and Africa and World Civet Day has been set up by the Civet Project Foundation to raise awareness of the species and the threats that they are facing – particularly their exploitation in the production of civet coffee. 

If you’re visiting us over the Easter period, be sure to stop by our Asian palm civet enclosure where we’ll have some civet-themed games and educational resources as well as our usual daily feed & talk, so you can learn more about these wonderful animals and how you can play your part to protect them. 

The feed & talk with Puk, our Asian palm civet, starts at 11.30 am daily.

Opening Times: 10 am – 4.30 pm daily (last entry 4 pm).
