Frequently asked questions…

How many children can I invite? We ask for a minimum of ten but there are no maximum numbers.(Although your food choice is dependent on numbers)

Do adults have to pay? The birthday child’s parents and 2 grandparents are free. One parent per child is also free. Extra parents and siblings who are not part of the party are £5.75. If you are not paying for any extra adults please ensure that the attending adults are aware they will need to pay on entry, however this is also stated on the invitations.

I have some babies coming – do they pay? If children are taking part in the activities, eating food and having party bags then they are charged at the usual party price.If they are under three, tagging along and not included in the party then they will be free.

What do you need to book? We require a non refundable £50 deposit to book the date. The remainder can be paid on the day. We will send you a link to our online shop once we have discussed the date.

Can I bring my own party bags? Yes that’s no problem if you have booked a silver party. The gold already includes party bags. Some people book the gold & still bring extra party bags.

What about decorations and balloons? You are welcome to bring extra decorations if you wish. Some parents bring a large balloon for the birthday child’s chair, others bring balloons for each child and many parents just stick to the farm party decorations. Its whatever you feel comfortable with. If you do bring extra decorations please remember to bring sellotape etc for our staff to put them up. (The only thing we cant accommodate is Pinatas!)

When do you need to know definite numbers? We email you the Monday before the party to ask for numbers and menu choices and its preferred to have final numbers by the Wednesday for food ordering purposes.

What happens if children don’t turn up? We only charge for the children who we start catering for on the day.(we do however ask for a minimum of ten to be paid for on the day).

My child has food allergies… We can cater for most situations but please give us as much information as possible to ensure we cater correctly.

When do we choose our animal activities? Please tell us the Monday before the party with your party names and menu choices. If you have no preference for animal activities we will usually do groom the donkey, bottle feed, pig washing and rabbit cuddling.

What is in the party bags? Our party bags are farm themed and have a selection of toys, bouncy balls, bubbles etc. You can add to them with sweets or extras if you wish.

Where do the children eat? The children eat in our farm themed party area in our barn. We have music and disco lights. Our staff will cut your cake and put it into the party bags for you. Parents can take a back seat and enjoy the party with the children, knowing we are looking after everything!

Would you like tea and coffee for the adults?
We can provide unlimited filter coffee and tea in our party area for £20, please ask on booking. Guests are also welcome to buy tea and coffee in the cafe individually.

What time do we arrive on the day?Usually around 10 minutes before the party starts. Our staff will tick off the children’s names as they come in and we will also take your cake and candles. If the weather is good people will meet in the playground. We ask parents to collect presents from guests if possible.

What about the weather? Here at the farm we live by the weather, we are always watching it and we will know what it will be like when you come. Rain never stops our parties from happening as our barns are undercover. All we ask is that you leave your best party clothes at home, dress for the day and get stuck in!

Some lovely feedback from our customers…

“Hi just want to say a big thank you to you all for giving my daughter and her friends an excellent party. Everyone from the parents to the children had a fabulous time and couldn’t fault anything. Even the weather was nice. Would definitely recommend to anyone”.

“I just wanted to email to say thank you for an amazing party. Anna and her friends (not to mention the adults) loved the party and all of the activities. Everyone was so friendly and patient and answering questions. Anna was thrilled to hold a guinea pig as she loves them and the sheer amount of stuff the kids got to do was great please pass on my thanks and happiness!”

“I just wanted to send you a quick email, to thank you very much for a fantastic party. Emma and all her friends had a great time and the comments from the parents and children were fantastic!! I found the staff very efficient, friendly and professional”.

“Thank you very much for Adams party. We all had a brilliant day and everything was organised perfectly. The staff who showed the children the animals were very knowledgeable and kept the children’s interest. The barrel ride went down really well. Food was good and exactly as we had ordered. Being able to play on the park for the rest of the day was really useful and gave us time to catch up with family and friends who had come to help celebrate Adams birthday!.

Birthdays are special and we look forward to making yours a day to remember!
