Our farm animals are the heart and soul of Fishers, we have a mixture of rare breeds, re-homes and rescue animals. Our aim is to provide a safe and fun environment for families to enjoy a fantastic family day out.
Meet our Farm Animals!
You can visit our horses, sheep, goats, alpacas, pigs and many more in the Animal Encounters Barn and handling paddocks. Watch them grazing and relaxing from the Tractor Ride and Barrel Bug Ride – fabulous fun for all ages!
In our animal encounters barn and around the park you will meet:
- Shire Horses
- Shetland Ponies
- Guinea Pigs
…and lots more!
Get up close and personal with the animals in our daily Animal Handling Sessions where you can meet and pet the animals. Enjoy our daily Farm Show* where you can meet the bigger animals on the farm, perfect for the whole family to enjoy!
*Seasonal – call 01403 700063 for specific dates.
Visitors, schools and all the family can meet some of our larger animals on the farm and learn all sorts of wonderful farming facts – we also ask special helpers with our bottle-feeding! Jessie the Jersey cow is often the star of the show, closely followed by Henry the Shire horse, or Pinky the Shetland Pony, make sure to give them a HUGE hello when you come and visit!
Get right up close to a variety of animals in our Animal Handling Sessions in the Animal Encounters Barn at Fishers. There’s rabbits, guinea pigs, chicks, ducklings…and even some tortoises to meet.
Pig Racing, Sheep Racing & The Shetland Grand National
Our friendly animal racing is a favourite with all our visitors! Spectators can place their bets at the Fishers Bookies and cheer their animal on as they happily race around the track and jump over hurdles towards the finish line where they are rewarded with a delicious feast! This is a great event for a family day out, as everyone can get involved!
