Covid-19

We have been so delighted to feel some sense of “normality” since the return to our full day tickets and group visits, and have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming our regular members and lots of new visitors.

Here’s an overview of things to expect and a few hints to help make the most of your day…

 

  • You do not need to pre-book your tickets before your visit, however we still do recommend this to avoid disappointment during our busier times. Tickets can be bought here: https://bookings.greendragonecofarm.co.uk/

 

  • Please ensure you do not visit the farm if you show symptoms of Covid-19, have recently been in contact with someone with Covid-19 or you have been asked to isolate. We suggest keeping the NHS Test and Trace app activated on mobile phones throughout your visit.

 

  • Everything is kept super clean with disinfectant. The Soft Play is now open all day but will be cleaned every 2 hours and temporarily closed during this period.

TOP TIPS ⭐️

  • Why not enjoy a breakfast buttie at 10/11am or a 3pm arvo cake and coffee when there is likely to be less of a queue.
  • Picnics in the designated areas are invited, you can even bring a small tent and set yourself a little camp for the duration of your visit! Put your rubbish in the bin or take it home though please.
  • Remember your face coverings, although no longer be a legal requirement, we strongly support the government recommendation of continuing to wear them whilst in crowded and enclosed spaces.
  • Bring some basic First Aid supplies.
  • Plan your route in advance as there have been numerous road closures locally.
  • Please bring contactless and card payment methods (excl. Amex) as we’ve currently gone cashless.
  • Pop into the Gift Shop midway through your visit rather than leaving it to the end.
  • Wash & sanitise your hands at every opportunity.
  • It’s Britain, prepare for all weathers. Umbrella, sun tent, sun cream, hat, wellies, waterproofs etc! You can always leave them in your car and pop back if needed.
  • Follow the one-way routes and queue systems.
  • Read all the important signage.
  • Respect and listen to our friendly trained staff.

 

E.coli

As members of the National Farm Attractions Network (NFAN), we adhere to the Industry Code of Practice which provides guidelines on how children and adults should interact with animals on farm parks.

The paddocks area, where the majority of the animals are kept, is separated by a double fence from the rest of the site. There will be no animal manure under foot on any tracks or pathways in this area. Visitors are encouraged to use the washing station at the entrance to the animal area as they leave.

Expectant mothers and lambs

Expectant mothers should take care when visiting the Farm during lambing season. Please read more here.
