Hardys Animal Farm in Ingoldmells, Skegness is a real life working farm where you can get close to the animals and see how they are reared on a modern farm. There is lots to do whatever the weather, with many of the livestock areas under cover, a large outdoor Adventure Play Fort and the huge Haystacks Indoor Playbarn which is linked to the Tea Rooms so you can enjoy a bite to eat or a cup of fresh coffee whilst the kids run off their energy. Also in Haystacks is a toddlers play pit where the little ones can play with soft shapes and farm animals in a secure and safe environment.
Hardys Animal Farm
The main farm is set in over 7 acres of countryside, just 10 minutes walk from Ingoldmells Beach. There is a fully glazed pig breeding unit where you can see the whole lifecycle of how pigs are born and reared to RSPCA Freedom standards. In good weather, the whole family can enjoy a Cart Ride around the Farm with Fergie the Tractor. With two adventure playgrounds, an outdoor and indoor area with pedal tractors, there is plenty of space for the kids to run around whilst parents relax in our award winning licensed tearooms with a hot drink or a bite to eat. We have piglets being born almost every week and through June and July many of the pygmy goats will be giving birth... so why not bring your kids to see their kids this summer!
The daily schedule of events encourages children to have a real hands on experience under the guidance of our knowledgeable team, as well as allowing the public to see what happens during the farming year. Easter lambing, hatching of chicks and sheep shearing are just a few of our events as well as the famous tractor weekends which run twice per year in June & July, which gives all the family the opportunity to sit in and see how the farms combine harvester and tractors work. Our website and Facebook page details all upcoming events and special offers. They are open every day
