Opened in July 2019, Fermanagh Fun Farm is a social enterprise business and registered as a C.I.C (Community Interest Company). It provides a family fun experience, learning about care and welfare of animals on a farm. 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, giant rabbits, hamsters, peacocks, silkie hens, guinea fowl birds, cockerels, ducks, highland cows, alpacas and meerkats. Seasonally we have young animals on site too such as lambs and chicks in the spring.
As well as our animals we also have a tearoom, indoor play area and outdoor playground. We also have picnic areas should families wish to bring their own food.
