Borough Farm Sheepdog & Farmyard Shows
Neighbouring Borough Farm's sheepdogs are the stars of channel Five’s ‘Mist-Sheepdog Tales'. David and his sheepdogs can be seen performing throughout the summer and there are farmyard shows too when Alfie the sheepdog attempts to rescue Jemima the Duck in the castle. With help from Mary, the fairy pig mother, Felicity the Cart Sheep, and the evil step sisters, the Farmyard Show makes a morning that you’ll remember. Great fun for all the family - our guests, young and old, simply love the shows.
