In January we have lots of work to do on the farm, so are only open on Saturdays and Sundays. The Sheep are on Customer Woolfare Training, the Meerkats are learning Manners, and the Goats are still eating everything, while Old Macdonald is improving the facilities for you. That is why we are not open from Mondays to Fridays until February 4th, but come at weekends and we look forward to seeing you. Now read on for what you can look forward to in 2008!
