When does the farm park open and close?

Farmer Palmer’s is open everyday from 10am – 4pm (in the Winter) and 10am – 5pm (in the Summer). We close in January each year to give the park a spruce up. For specific opening dates throughout the year please visit our Times and Prices page.

Can we bring the dog?

Sorry, we do not allow dogs into the park (except guide/assistance dogs, provided they have paperwork and are in their uniform). We do have two kennels available where you can leave your dog during your visit. We can provide a bowl of fresh water and a pad lock for you to use. You are welcome to visit your pet as many times as you like throughout the day. We have dog beds and bedding to borrow and we also sell Staglers antler dog chews in our shop, a great long lasting treat!

Is animal contact safe?

We sometime get asked if animal contact is safe? Children and animals can be unpredictable but our Animal Care and Hygiene is really important to us. Cleanliness and welfare rule at Farmer Palmer’s! For more info re hand washing and hygiene see this leaflet.

Is there Public Transport to the Farm Park

Yes! Route 40 bus from Poole to Swanage will drop you at the end of our drive way! Full bus timetables can be found on the More Bus website.

Do you allow smoking? We have a designated smoking/vaping area which has it’s own shelter called the ‘Dog House’ on the grass area, adjacent to the Duck Pond. Please use this area only for smoking/vaping.

What is the First Aid policy?

If an accident occurs please ask a member of staff at the Restaurant or Shop for access to certain minor first aid equipment for administration by yourself/an adult. Trained First Aiders are always on site or on call. There is no legal obligation for us to provide or administer First Aid to the public but our trained First Aiders will always try to help if possible. Our policy is on display and in the daily newsletter.

Can I visit the Farm if I am Pregnant?

It is advised that pregnant women do not come in to contact with the placenta of newly born lambs during the lambing season, as it is the placenta which carries the risk of Toxoplasmosis.

At Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park our ewes give birth to their lambs out in the field and are only brought in to the animal barn when completely dry, therefore it is safe to visit the farm while you are pregnant. If you have any further questions please just give us a call on 01202 622 022 or read our blog post on this topic.
