Stockfest is our annual two day festival, which is action packed with family friendly fun! Each year the festival has a different theme. In 2015 we hosted ‘The Wild West’, 2016 brought the ‘Rio Carnival’ to the farm, and in 2017 we went ‘Back To The 80’s’ to celebrate the farm’s 30th birthday!
This year on 11th & 12th August, ‘Superheroes & Fairytales’ are taking over the farm to transform it into a magical, mythical wonderland!
Get your tickets**, bring along your team of little superheroes, fairies and princesses and join us for a weekend of enchantment and adventure!
