Welcome to Rain Hayne & Shine Farmyard where we offer “A Farmtastic Day Out” with plenty of hands on experiences with friendly farm animals in a natural, rustic farm setting.

We offer a fun-filled day for animal lovers of all ages, educational tours, a playgroup and birthday parties.

We also offer a MOBILE FARM service to come to YOU!


The farm will reopen on the 7th Nov 2020 10am – 4pm

Opening days are Sat to Wednesday (closed Thurs and Friday)

Please pre book tickets on line.

Some things are different at the farm. Currently our indoor areas are closed due to Covid 19 restrictions (patting pen shed and party rooms) but we have set up 2 additional outdoor patting pen areas. There will be time limits in some areas and it may be necessary to queue and wait.

Unfortunately at present we are unable to offer horse or pony rides.
