Meet The Animals at CountryTastic
This year you can meet our farmyard friends including sheep, goats, pigs and cattle plus there are many familiar pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs waiting to be stroked. Head to the stables to meet very friendly ponies and donkeys.
We are very lucky that our local farmers come out in force to support CountryTastic by bringing their animals along to the event and teaching you all about them.
Parade of Livestock
A highlight for many, the Parade of Livestock is a fun informative parade where you can ask questions about all the animals and learn the difference between the breeds.
Wag and Bone Ring
