About

The Ark Open Farm is a fantastic family day out set in 40 acres of beautiful countryside between Newtownards and Bangor.

This family run farm has been open for 30 years and promises a fun-filled family day out for all. Enjoy a wide range of farm animals and exotic residents, indoor and outdoor play areas, nature trails, cafe, and gift shop.

The Ark Open Farm is a family run business and our team consists of passionate, animal loving folks who strive to make your experience on the farm extra special.

There is something for everyone; animals, activities, lovely food and friendly people.

Events are held throughout the year so keep up to date with us on our Website or Facebook for all the details.

The Ark Open Farm is a great venue for Birthday Parties in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter with enough space for all your guests and catering available.
