With the suggestion of an August heatwave on the way, Middle Farm is promising to be the perfect family day out this August.

For the rest of the summer holidays, the West Firle farm, near Lewes has is offering fun for all the family. The renowned Open Farm will be available daily, featuring animal meet and greets, feeding time, interesting educational talks about the working farm, and entertaining animal training displays.

On the last Wednesday of the month, the final Big Wednesday will round off an enjoyable August of farm fun. On Wednesday 25th August, things get magical with a special magic performance from children’s party entertainers Fairy Dust Events. There are two instalments of the interactive show, 12pm – 12:45pm and 1:15pm – 2:00pm. After the shows there will be magic hats and wands decorating and the chance to explore the farm.

Ellie Stiles, Open Farm Supervisor at Middle Farm, said, “Our Big Wednesday events have been really popular so far, and we’d love people to join us for the last week. The magic show is the perfect way to round things off, and we’re really lucky to have Fairy Dust Events joining us.

All of the other family favourites are still available throughout the week, including our Open Farm daily event timetable where you can meet the animals and watch them feed, the award-winning Farm Shop and Cider Barn, plus our beautiful Plant Shop and Tea Room.

We’ve had lots of happy guests so far this summer, all telling us that their visit was the perfect chance for their young ones to learn more about the animals, see what happens on a working farm, and enjoy some much-needed time outdoors. We hope you can join us.”

Middle Farm is open seven days a week, and entry to the open farm is £6. Tickets to the Big Wednesday events are £7 each and includes everything going on that day and can be booked online at www.middlefarm.com. Under 3s and carers go free.
