Veganism and Ethics

Animal feeding experiences at Farmer Palmer’s are ‘part of the furniture’. We love what we do and so do our 80,000+ visitors who come to the farm park each year. The Animal Barn team does an incredible job delivering exciting, educational events and demonstrations every day. However, times are changing and because we want to be industry leaders, building on top of our already excellent welfare standards, we are now re-evaluating our animal activities. How can we improve even further, exceeding customer expectations and develop our animal interactions in line with the progression in Environmental Awareness?
