“Book this guy for your children’s birthday and no one will be disappointed. Not only do all the children get to interact with all the animals but the birthday boy or girl is the star of the show.”

“It was amazing and the children loved it! The party was well structured and Farmer Ian was amazing with the children and animals. I highly recommend Longdown Mobile Farm and will definitely be booking again in the near future.”
