Naturally the most important thing to consider when moving or displaying animals is the welfare. With this in mind all we ask for is that you provide a suitable space (see picture), away from loud noise, access to a water supply, parking for our truck and trailer and if you can, some temporary shelter. It’s always useful if we can park close to wherever we are setting up too.

All the children who came just fell in love with the animals, especially the llama! I can not recommend The Mini Farm highly enough. Such a professional service and just lovely people. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“Thank you to Jess and Millie for such a wonderful farm experience! The range of animals to choose from was fantastic and didn't disappoint on the day. The mini pony 'Bella' was a beauty and the children adored her. We had the mini farm over a 4 hour period and the ladies were on hand the entire time to answer the children's questions and support petting the animals. The experience at our school truly was 5 star! The farm left no mess behind and we could not even tell the animals had been walked through one of our Nursery classrooms into the outdoor area! We will definitely book again. Thank you.”
– Lydia Beer

“Great service from start to finish. Hired the Mini Farm for a corporate event, where office workers were invited to come down during lunch to de-stress by greeting the animals. Booking was smooth and all communication before and up to the event was responded to quickly. On the day of the event, the team arrived promptly and set quickly and were friendly to all guests. Animals were well looked after throughout. Would highly recommend the mini farm for any future event and hope to work with them again in the future.”

The Jockey Club

The whole idea behind the mobile farm by The Mini Farm, is that our customers have a great time whilst meeting the animals. Because our animals are so used to contact, they just love being stroked and petted.

Security and welfare of the animals is important, that’s why we bring all our own enclosures, and a ground sheet to stop any unnecessary mess. We want to create a real life farm at your event.
