Update On The Farm!

Our Highland cows have started calving and our rare breed sheep are due to start lambing. This is a great opportunity to wander our wonderful walkways and explore the Mere Trail and hopefully witness the arrival of new life, in our beautiful countryside.

Whatever the weather, we’ve got you covered!

Don’t let the rain dampen your spirits! At our farm, the majority of activities are undercover, so you can still visit and have a great time! Come rain or shine, you can enjoy our Indoor soft play, meet our Farmyard Friends, experience Criters2U, ride the farm train, and much more. Create wonderful memories down on the farm!


Our Pygmi Goats are due to give birth this summer, along with our Dorset Sheep! Make sure you visit the lambing barn when you visit the farm!

Since 1938, Windmill Animal Farm has been the Slinger Family’s residence. Originally, we operated as dairy, cattle, and sheep farmers, delivering fresh milk to our local villagers.

In 1990, during a family holiday in Wales, we explored a farm visitor attraction, returning home brimming with ideas. Consequently, on the 1st of August 1992, we opened our gates to the public.

Presently, our farm boasts an incredible array of rare breed and exotic farm animals, along with top-notch indoor and outdoor play areas in Lancashire.

Windmill Farm has provided four generations of family farmyard enjoyment, and now, we’re eager to share it all with you.

Come and immerse yourself in the daily workings of our farm. Observe, feed, and interact with many of our splendid animals and their young.

We look forward to welcoming you 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.
