Why choose Kidsrome?

  • Welfare of the animals is very important to us. They are comfortable with human interaction and enjoy being petted.
  • We have £10 million public liability insurance from the NFU and are happy to supply a risk assessment.
  • FARMA considers our approach to be best practice.
  • Our friendly, professional staff are CRB checked.
  • We adhere to all health & safety guidelines and regulations, always following the latest advice.
  • We manage our farm and mobile farm in accordance with DEFRA guidelines.
  • Hygiene is very important to us and we supply a handwashing unit, rather than alcoholic gels, so anyone touching the animals can wash their hands. This is in line with HSC recommendations.

In addition to the testimonials from satisfied customers you'll find on this website, we're happy to provide you with contact details of previous and current clients, who can discuss their experience of using Kidsrome.

How it started

Kidsrome began around sixteen years ago when our children joined a summer play scheme at our local church. During the scheme they did the usual activities for infant school-age children. One of the activities was based around the bible story of the animals and the ark. Being farmers, we were asked to bring some ark animals along and, of course, we said yes. So we supplied our very own travelling animal ark and realised how much pleasure the children got from the visit.

This inspired me to set about creating a mobile zoo service, which bore little resemblance to our animal ark experience. I'm proud that Kidsrome now has several mobile units, lots of satisfied customers, several jobs created and a growing business.
