PAST EVENT – Join us on 22nd September for an Open Day and Networking Exhibition at White Post Farm.

Originally a working pig farm, White Post Farm first opened its doors as a farm park on June 21st 1988, and has been one of the East Midlands top tourist attractions ever since!

The farm has seen many highs, and several lows, over the last 34 years, and now the future is looking brighter than ever with many new exhibits in development. Much of this is due to the farm obtaining a zoo license at the start of 2020, a dream which grew after the falconry centre became a permanent onsite fixture in 2019.

2020 brought its own challenges, but the farm was able to develop in other areas such as gaining a captive audience on social media, and expanding the educational offerings.

Bringing us to 2022, the team are preparing for the first new animals for the zoo collection – from a brand-new reptile house, to welcoming a pair of crocodiles, the future of White Post Farm has never looked more exciting.
