Children's Birthday Parties

Purple Pear Farm is a working farm with ducks, geese, chickens, pigs, guinea pigs, goats, cows and ponies for children to feed and pet. Children can wander through the market gardens and see food as seasonal produce.
The parties are beautiful, natural and preservative free, low sugar, with activities based around what is happening on the farm. Included are farm walks, animal feeding, stories, a craft activity and a small take home gift.
Your child and their guests receive home cooked, mainly organic morning or afternoon tea.
