Overview

This long established farm animal petting attraction, here at prickly ball farm we rescue, rehabilitate, and release our native hedgehog back to the wild once they are fit and well, All the good work that we do here is all self funded, so your entrance fee is directly supporting our hedgehog care. We have a cafe serving fresh barista coffee, many teas also serving breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas and an amazing selection of cake!!!!!! The cafe can be used without paying an entrance.

My daughter loved it. Small but did all the activities and stayed most of the day. The sun was out which was a bonus.
