All the best, Farmer Matt 

Windmill Animal Farm has been the home of the Slinger Family since 1938. We started off as dairy, cattle and sheep farmers and also delivered fresh milk to our local villagers.

Then in 1990, whilst on a family holiday in Wales, we visited a farm visitor attraction. We returned home with some great ideas and opened our gates to the public on the 1st August 1992.

Now our farm is home to an amazing range of rare breed and exotic farm animals and some of the best indoor and outdoor play areas in Lancashire.

Windmill Farm has given us four generations of family farmyard fun and now, we want to share it all with you.

Come and experience everyday working life on our farm and watch, feed and touch many of our wonderful animals and their young.

We hope to see you all soon.

A lovely day out for little ones with lots for them to do. From holding small animals, bottling feeding lambs to train rides round the farm plus little diggers and tractor activities to do. Have a big play area indoors which is perfect for parents to relax and watch the children have fun.
