Our purpose built passenger trailer is towed with a huge John Deere Tractor by one of our farmers. You will go uphill to the top of the farm on our tractor track. On the way there are animals in the fields for you to look at, but once at the top you will be greeted by our donkeys who will be enjoying their day off from giving rides to the children. The donkeys all congregate around the trailer and you will be given slices of bread or carrots to feed the donkeys with. This can be enjoyed by adults and children alike and if you also like to look at the beautiful surroundings, you can see right over to Manchester City Centre, the Hilton Hotel being the tallest building on the horizon.

The ride itself takes approximately 15 minutes. The going is slow but bumpy. A proper Tractor experience!

Times of the tractor rides can vary, but at weekends and school holidays they will generally be around these times:

11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm (April – October)

Term Time Midweek

12pm and 2.30pm
