Roaming Roosters' farm doors are thrown open this summer

With traditional farming techniques at the forefront of the business, a Pendle company is once again opening its farm doors to entertain and educate its customers.

Roaming Roosters, based in Higham has reopened its popular farm, inviting children and their parents to meet a variety of animals.

The idea is to provide entertainment for children during the school holidays, but also to educate them on the process from farm to fork and where their meat comes from.

The farm will be open to visitors from 10am to 3pm Thursday to Sunday until the end of the summer holidays, giving visitors the chance to meet the pigs, piglets, sheep, chicks and baby goat Rosie, free.

“Our farm has always been extremely popular, so we thought it’d be a great idea to open it again this summer,” said Paul White, business development manager at Roaming Roosters.

“Parents love bringing their children along to interact with the animals, but also to understand and talk to them about where their food comes from.”

“We continually strive to educate our customers, and this is another avenue which allows us to do this. Families are welcome to come and spend time with the animals; we’ll have staff on hand to answer any questions and provide further information about what we do.” Alongside the farm re-opening, the Old Spot bistro, farm shop and Hayloft coffee shop on site will be open as usual.
