Health & Safety on the Farm

How to prevent catching anything at our farm!

Assume that all animals carry harmful micro-organisms but follow these guidelines and the risk is low:

Wash your hands with soap and water (really well) before eating or putting hands in mouths.

Wash toys/dummies/bottles or beakers before use if they have touched the ground.

Supervise your children when washing their hands.

Check pushchair wheels and footwear before going home, clean them and wash hands after touching them.

Don't kiss animals or let your children chew fences.

Wash your hands before you leave the farm.

Only eat in the designated area. Picnics are not permitted in the grassed play areas on the trail!

Gel hand cleaners or wipes are not a substitute for soap and water!
