Opened in July 2019, Fermanagh Fun Farm is a social enterprise business and registered as a C.I.C (Community Interest Company). It will provide a family fun experience, learning about care and welfare for animals on a farm. Prebooked sessions are only available and next year (2020) we aim to be open to the public, so they can either pre-book or turn up on the day. As a social enterprise 100% of the profits will go back into the farm to care for the animals, to continue to expand and add attractions. Our profits will also be used to benefit the community by offering workshops about caring for animals, and educational services to schools linked to the Northern Ireland Curriculum. It will also be used to ensure all our animals are well cared for, and we continue under the Animal Welfare Act to meet their 5 freedoms. The farm is run and managed by a group of volunteers.
The farm is run by a community group called "Friends of the Farm". The group meet on a regular basis to plan next steps for the farm, using visitors feedback. The group is open to any member of the community of the age of 18, whose interested in the work of the farm.
Fermanagh Fun Farm is located on the edge of Lisbellaw Village (5 miles outside Enniskillen), 100 yards off the main Belfast to Enniskillen Road. We are easy to access using public transport, as only a 3-4 min walk from Lisbellaw Bus Station.
Like most businesses, the farm will start of small and will develop over time, according to customer demand. Currently animals on our farm include: donkeys, sheep, cows, pigs, hens, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, hens, cockerels, ducks and chicks.
As well as our animals we also have a tuck shop and indoor / outdoor seating area for having a picnic. We also have a outdoor playarea too with a sandpit, tractor climbing frame and trailer slide.
