Daisy May’s Farm feeling the pinch as visitor numbers drop – but it has plenty of festive fun lined up

A visitor farm in Elsenham is facing a bleak winter if it cannot sell enough tickets for its Christmas events.

Numbers at Daisy May’s Farm in Hall Road are down this year and owner Rachel Berry urged the public to join in their festive season of activities in December to ensure the attraction’s continued survival.

“The farm has seen a drop in visitors this year, we assume due to the weather during both the summer holidays and October half term for our Hallowe’en event,” said Rachel.

“Upon chatting to customers, it appears that the rise in the cost of living is playing a huge part too. Most families aren’t going out as much as they used to and some are opting to visit parks and other free attractions, to compensate for their rising household costs.”

The farm is holding its Winter Wonderland days on the first three weekends of December, including the Fridays (Dec 1-3, 8-10 and 15-17).

The children’s ticket price of £10 includes meeting and feeding the farm animals, the woodland wonderland, Christmas arts and crafts, festive storytime, a hot chocolate and cookie and a gift from Santa. Visitors must pay extra for Santa’s sleigh train ride and face painting.

Food and drinks are available from Ollie’s food hut and the Coffee Cabin.

Tickets costing £10 for children and £5 for adults (under-ones go free) can be booked online at www.daisymaysfarm.org.
