Getting the most out of your day - Matlock Farm Park

Please check the weather forecast before you set off! In winter it can be very cold and windy up on the farm so please bring warm layers and a waterproof to enjoy all the fun. We also advise wellies or sensible footwear as some areas can get muddy. In summer we advise you bring sun hats and sun cream!

An itinerary will be handed to you upon entry of different activities you can get involved in during the day. Keep this with you and check the times of what’s on – this way you can decide when to break away from the farm to enjoy the café or Rainforest play barn without missing out.

Pick up a bag of animal feed on entry to enjoy hand feeding our animals as you wander the farm park. When you are feeding our four legged, grass-eating animals please remember to keep your hand nice and flat. We strongly advise that when you are feeding pigs or donkeys, you throw the feed on the ground and do not put your hands in, as pigs and donkeys have terrible table manners and aren’t very good at sharing!

Please note that no smoking is permitted anywhere inside the farm park, the smoking area is located in the car park.

No children under sixteen are allowed into the farm park without an adult and no dogs are allowed in the farm park (apart from guide dogs).
