Windmill Animal Farm
Fish Lane, Burscough, Lancashire. L40 1UQ Tel: 01704 892282
The farm is open 7 days a week from 10am till 5pm.
Windmill Animal Farm was first opened to the public in 1992 and offers visitors the chance to experience the every day running of an actual working farm whilst still having the chance to watch, feed, touch and play with the animals.
As well as beautiful and unusual animals to see, the farm has three marvellous children’s play areas. The indoor play barn, one of the largest in the North West, the new outdoor play area by the main farm complex and the second new outdoor play area by Lake View, which can be reached by the beautiful miniature train that crosses the farm. Pedal tractors can be ridden around the farm by the children, who are most welcome to bottle feed the lambs at the appropriate time of the year.
The farm is set within many acres of grounds with what used to be a derelict Windmill from which the farm gets its name.
The animals on the farm have been acquired from different parts of the country with a mixture of breeds ranging from the Scottish Highland cattle to the Jacob sheep which originate from the Spanish mainland. Other breeds of animals can be seen on the farm such as cows, goats, pigs, rabbits, shire horses and shetland ponies.
School parties are welcome to the farm throughout the year and education guided tours are available on the animals and the chance to see and learn about the rearing of these animals and their varied lives
