The farm will be running on weekends only using a pre-booked ticketing system, with a limited number of visitors. Sessions will be separated into mornings and afternoons, running from 9am to 12pm and then 1pm to 4pm.
As indoor play areas are not yet permitted to open, the farm is planning some interactive walking trails for visitors during their session, themed around the site's history, heritage, rare breed farm animals and outdoor play.
General manager, Lee Scowen, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming families back onto the site, we’ve risk-assessed all possible outcomes in order for us to be able to reopen on the weekend of July 4, in line with advice from the Government.
“In order to do so we will be capping the number of people on site at any one time, cleaning thoroughly between sessions and utilising the beautiful outdoor spaces that we have here at Sacrewell to create the wonderful experiences that our visitors are used to.”
A pop-up paella stand in the grounds of the farm will be operating on site on July 4 and 5, and takeaway refreshments will be available from the O8 cafe. Family picnic boxes are available to order on their website origin8delicafes.com
Lee added: “We hope to increase the number of days we’re open for over the following weeks, based on Government guidelines and continued risk assessments for both our staff
“Despite the current circumstances, this is still going to be a really exciting year for Sacrewell Farm with some wonderful projects in process.”
