Sunderland Farm is offering an Easter deal at the moment – you can buy a family ticket and a bag of animal feed for just £8 (50% off).
Sunderland Farm is set in 28 acres of land with resident lambs, goats, piglets and ponies. The family ticket offer allows a family of four to visit the farm Monday to Thursday, or on Saturdays where they offer the chance to interact with the animals and take part in fun tasks and educational activities. Some example activities are… feeding baby calves and stroking young lambs; collecting, sorting and packing eggs in the poultry house; milking goats in the goat shed and seeing goat ice-cream being made. There are also garden and wildlife areas to explore. The farm also has a workhouse, beehives, recycling plant, dene, hatchery and a fruit maze.
The farm acts as a training centre for the local community, providing courses and apprenticeships. It is partnered with Springboard and Sunderland college and the centre helps young people who want to try their hands at a different career. The farm is a non-profit organisation and aims to help citizens to improve the quality of their lives, as well as aiming to improve the educational, social and leisure opportunities of the local area. The farm also hosts children’s birthday parties with themes including birds of prey, reptile, farmer and pony.
