Happy pigs at Bowland Wild Boar Park

Bowland Wild Boar Animal Park is a great day out for the family.  Having it's origins as a pig farm specialising in the raising of wild boar for meat, the park is now home to a number of different types of animal and there is something for everybody here. Ideal for school groups.
   
Bowland Wild Boar ParkHunted to extinction in the Medieval Britain, farming of wild boar began in the 1980's and populations of feral wild boar have now established themselves after some boar escaped.  Today you can see boar being farmed in free range conditions at Bowland Wild Boar Park.  Different paddocks are used for breeding, farrowing, raising young before fattening prior to slaughter.

Other breeds of pigs are raised here and there are plenty of other animals on display such as sheep, deer and Llama.

Attractions include tractor and barrel rides for children, meerkat feeding, chick stroking and walks.

Wild boar meat is sold at the farm shop and can be enjoyed in the café.
