COVID 19 Update

COVID 19 Update

Dear Friends,

Please read this August update carefully. While many businesses have been allowed to reopen with restrictions, we at Wooly Farm have been trying to figure out a safe way for us to reopen.

We have been in touch with all the relevant Government Departments on how we can conduct our mobile farm safely. All government guidance will need to be complied with including social distancing, numbers of people/households in gardens or at events, contact tracing, hand washing and animal contact etc.

Unfortunately these restrictions are making it next to impossible for us to provide our service in a safe way. We have explored different ways of providing our services but there are just too many variables and we don’t want our events to be a vehicle for the spread of the virus. Coupled with this, and as you will have seen on the news, the events sector has been badly hit by the pandemic. People (quite rightly) just do not want to book/attend events for fear of catching the virus. The end result is that right now, it is not financially viable for us to recommence events. We are receiving too few bookings to cover the cost of our public liability insurance! In other words we would be operating at a huge loss!

To say we are disappointed is an understatement! We love what we do – we love showing off our beautiful babies at events and entertaining you all with our silly antics!

But we now need to take stock of the current crisis and give a clear picture as to our plans. We are going to suspend all Wooly Farm activities until 2021. Hopefully a vaccine will be found by then, and at that point we will be able to operate in a safe environment. The health and safety of our staff, animals and clients comes first. We are continuing to monitor the situation and are in regular contact with the relevant bodies. If circumstances change, you can be assured that Wooly Farm will be back on the road.

Provisional bookings can be made for 2021 by emailing info@woolyfarm.ie or calling us on (087) 367 6787, however, what we can offer will continue to adapt as guidance changes. We will not be requiring our usual deposit to secure your date, so please do book your visit from Wooly Farm.

We thank you for your patience and hope to see you with our animals as soon as possible!
