Rumleys Open Farm Birthday Parties:

Rumleys Open Farm is the ideal location for your birthday party or any other special event such as Communions, Confirmations or Family party.

Birthday parties at Rumley’s farm offer children and parents the opportunity to experience a real working farm. Children will get the opportunity to feed and hold animals – both cuddly and large as well as a very varied collection of fowl -animals that children would normally never get close to.

The main birthday attraction is our tractor tour around the complete farm with a number of stop off activities to find out about the animals, feed them and discover how the farm works. All activities will be tailored to the age group of the party. While this is definitely a big hit with the children it is our experience that adults enjoy the trip as much as the children.

They provide a safe and entertaining environment for which to hold your party.
