Foodie company throws open its farm doors

A popular sustainable foodie company has reopened its farm doors to the public, as it grows its offering adding new facilities for families to enjoy.

Roaming Roosters, based in Higham, Pendle, has reopened its petting farm on site, adding extra activities to the mix, including a treasure hunt, duck pond, den building area, and a bale mountain.

Simon Mellin, managing director and co-owner at Roaming Roosters said: “Our petting farm and education centre has always been extremely popular with both the local community and those travelling from further afield to come and visit us.

“The new facilities on site make us a real landmark in the area, offering families, schools, children and adults the chance to enjoy a day out, have fun, and learn more about the farming process and our animals.”

The Rooster Ranch will offer birthday party packages, which include arts and crafts, farm yard quiz, animal hunt, animal petting and a party bag, alongside dinner for each child which includes sausage rolls or pork pies, sandwiches, snacks and a drink.

In addition, the team at Roaming Roosters are liaising with local schools in the area; school groups can visit the site, listen to talks on each animal, hold the animals, take an animal quiz and get involved in an animal hunt.

Simon added: “With the bank holiday weekend, and summer just around the corner, this is the perfect time to showcase our farm, and create a place for families and the like to visit on a daily basis.” The Rooster Ranch is £3 per person, and for families of two adults, two children, £10. The new additions to the farm on site are great for the local community, making Roaming Roosters a great attraction for visitors across Lancashire and beyond.
