Hoo Farm Reopens for the 2013 Season with Lots of all Weather Additions to Make the Prefect Day Out (26th February 2013)

Hoo Farm will reopen its gates for the 2013 season on Saturday 16th March. Visitors on a day out will be able to see many of the old favorites such as the meerkats, foxes, ostrich, but also new areas such as the Africa Zone featuring lemurs and porcupine, the furry tail forest, crazy golf and much more undercover activities.

Hoo Farm has decided that 2013 is going to be a key year for a redesign of the farm trail including lots of new areas, new animals and many new undercover demonstrations and attractions.

The Farmyard Theatre Barn will feature a brand new programme of events including a seasonal Animal Show which will take place undercover. Visitors will get the chance to experience the fun of the farm when the weather is unpredictable. "The key to the 2013 season is to offer a full inside and outside package of activities and events’’ said Will Dorrell Head of Exotics and Demonstrations. "Previous years have seen us limited by the weather, however this year we plan to be an all-round flexible venue where families can come and not miss out just because the rain won’t stay away."

Other new attractions include "The Bizarre British Wildlife" area with the addition of otters along with the usual foxes and owls but also features other weird and wonderful creatures that can now be found in the more extreme areas of the UK.
Moving away from Britain, "The African Zone" features some of the old favourites such as the giant tortoises and meerkats but new arrivals are the Lemurs and Porcupine. This zone hopes to be a firm favourite with all members of the family.
Other new areas include the "Wallaby Woods" with a walk through the wallaby enclosure and the addition of llama walking from early summer where visitors can do exactly that.

A whole new area for 2013 is the Furry Tail forest. Visitors can take part in the New Egg Experience in a brand new undercover building, they will see the 3 little pigs and walk along the Hoollee Highstreet.

Admission prices start from £7.45 per person and children receive a free return visit included in their admission price.
