Nunny’s Farm is now open!

Following a period of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, Nunny’s Farm in Grimsby has now reopened to the public with new safety measures in place.

The community farm on Wootton Road, Grimsby is now open to the public via an appointment system.

Slots can be booked here, via Facebook. These are available in 15-minute intervals, enabling each family group or social bubble to start on the one-way route before the next appointment arrives.

A guided walk around the farm takes approximately 45 minutes, and costs £2 per person.

A one-way route is currently in place, taking visitors past all of the animals.

The recently planted orchard of heritage Lincolnshire apple trees and also past the paddocks and stabling currently being constructed ready for new animals to arrive over the next year.

Directors Neil and Joanna have worked tirelessly to ensure the survival of the farm during the coronavirus crisis.

The farm has not received any financial help.

Speaking to Gi Media, Joanna said:

“We know that the farm is an essential local asset for the children and adults in our community especially those who have struggled with isolation during the lockdown.

“We are relieved to be open and are happy to be sharing our love of the animals with everyone who visits.”

The team added that a group of volunteers on hand at all times to talk to visitors about the animals, including the recently hatched chicks and ducklings who are the current stars of the farm!

Now that Nunny’s Farm is open again, ‘On the Road’ mobile farm services are ready to resume too, providing nurseries, schools and residential homes access to the animals without the need for organised trips.

The team are currently running a competition where individuals can win an ‘On the Road’ visit for their school or nursery.

Visits to Nunny’s Farm can be arranged here, via their Facebook page.
