Archie’s Farm


There are so many fun and educational activities for everyone to take part in. From animal talks, animal handling, or den building, you will create the best of memories. The team goes the extra mile to create a magical atmosphere. They tailor for individuals needs. You will even get given targets and someone is always on hand to give directions and help out when needed. I wish I had attended these kinds of classes when I was younger! In the maths class, children are given a budget and they need to build and design a mini farm. Such a great way to learn, right? In science class, children get to go on a hunt. And not just any hunt! A bug hunt! During this adventure, they will learn about bug's habitats and behaviours. And it is all down to their own efforts in the search! In the Art class, children go and find some natural elements laying on the forest's floor. They get to create their very own Art with whatever they manage to collect. The English class is so creative too. Children get to go on a treasure hunt, creating words and trying to imagine life as a small creature. With highly trained professionals, every single teacher really goes the extra mile to deliver the highest quality of learning experience. *


I stumbled upon Archie’s Farm completely by accident and after being told about it third hand by other attractions and after all my research on the site, I knew I had to have it in this chapter! This small petting farm may be small in size, but it has an absolutely huge personality and along with Archie the donkey, you’ll be glad you discovered it. I think in some ways, Buxton can be quite an adult type of place, so with Archie’s Farm being on what is the outskirts of the town, it really has become quite a popular place to entertain the under 10’s. However, I would go as far as to say, even the over 10’s are just as entertained as the younger members of the family and if were being completely honest, even though happy children make for happy adults, even mums and dads love Archie’s Farm, so what are you waiting for?
