More about Farmer Parrs Animal World
It’s open all year round, with lots to see and do including large and small animals that you’d find at home and on the farm. Farmer Parrs is really easy to find being not far from Blackpool on the main road to Fleetwood, with lots of free parking.
There’s also the indoor Fylde Country Life Museum, Pottery Shop and studio, children’s play and picnic areas, pony rides and tractor rides, cafe and shop.
When you arrive at Farmer Parrs you check in at the shop where you can also grab a bite to eat, an ice cream or snack or a drink in the cafe. Follow the footpath and the first thing you find is the Fylde Country Life Museum.
Step back into the past in a huge barn, set out into rooms inside, where each one offers a window into times gone by. Smaller guests won’t have seen any of the exhibits before, but grandmas and older guardians will take a walk back in time to their own childhood and things that they remember from the early to mid 1900’s. There are ironmongers shops, cobblers and printers shops laid out to marvel at, along with old farming equipment and agricultural lives gone by. Perhaps most fascinating and nostalgic for some are the living room and kitchen sets, with furniture and domestic scenes from a long forgotten age, when today’s modern appliances and ways of doing things were a twinkle in the eye.
Head through the Museum and into the next indoor barn which is home to the events and activities that take place during the year. This is where you’ll find Santa at Christmas with his friendly deer helpers, and various other events through the seasons, including spooky goings on at Halloween when it’s time for Farmer-Parr-a-Normal! At the back of the barn you’ll find domestic pets like rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises.
Beyond the barns is a world of farm animals. Open stalls are home to pigs, sheep, goats, ponies, horses and cows, all friendly and used to the hundreds of people that they meet. You can get up close and personal to all of them, say hello, feel their fur, and make friends. Say hello to Eric the Jersey cow who loves everybody – he’ll try to nibble your clothes and give you a big lick!
As you go through the stalls, the site opens up and aviaries overlook the fields and duck ponds, which is where you’ll find birds and smaller mammals.
The site at Farmer Parrs is quite large and there’s nothing nicer than a walk around the paddocks, following the footpath and looking at the animals out in the fields. Take in the fresh air and keep your eyes open, because along with the residents who live at Farmer Parrs you’ll also see all kinds of wildlife. There are wild rabbits and all kinds of birds, in winter the pylons in the field are home to thousands of starlings as they flock in the spectacle that’s called a ‘murmuration’. Watch them swooping and diving at dusk as they roost in huge numbers for safety.
Don’t forget you can enjoy a tractor ride, pony rides, and on advertised days at the height of the season you can even ride in a full sized tank!
The season starts at Farmer Parr’s with chicks and lambs at February half term and then keeps going all through the year.
Animals at Farmer Parrs include:
Sheep, cows, pigs, horses, ponies, llamas, alpacas, rhea, goats, wallabies, deer, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, snakes, spiders, tortoise, donkeys, chipmunks, ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys, owls, peacocks and more!
The Pottery Studio and Shop at Farmer Parrs offers a ‘paint a pot’ service to farm visitors.
Choose a pot, paint it, and then have it fired for you and glazed in the studio. The Pottery Studio is a registered charity and all proceeds go to developing the service.
