Fishers Farm Park celebrates 25 years

PUBLISHED: 17:15 02 July 2015 | UPDATED: 17:15 02 July 2015

Fishers Adventure Farm Park in Wisborough Green recently celebrated their 25th Year, transformed from a fruit-picking farm in 1990 to the award-winning family attraction it is today

Fishers Adventure Farm Park in Wisborough Green threw an enormous party this month to celebrate their 25th Birthday. Fishers began in June 1990 with around 6,000 people coming through its doors. It has grown enormously in the last 25 years and now welcomes around 178,000 visitors a year.

Hosted at the award-winning attraction itself, more than 200 guests arrived for the celebrations. Invitations were sent to those who had contributed to the success of Fishers over the years. Local suppliers, friends, neighbours, staff old and new and families who camped at the farm when it was a campsite back in the ‘90’s - all came along for the event.

The evening included a superb Hog Roast supplied by ‘Michael Courtney Hog Roasts’ accompanied by some fantastic music by renowned local Rock Band “The Blues Blasters”. All of the guests were invited into the farm’s ‘Barn Theatre’ to watch some live performing, amusing anecdotes and a history of the farm and it’s journey to the place it has become today.

General Manager, Melanie McAlpine, who organized the event and has been a part of the Fishers Farm team since the beginning in 1990, commented: “It was wonderful to be surrounded by so many of Fishers extended ‘family’. We shared memories, laughter and just a few tears“.

The whole team has been overwhelmed by the number of cards and congratulations they have received and wanted to say a big thank you to all who have supported and visited Fishers over the years.

Tim Rollings owner of the farm park commented: “It has been a roller coaster ride! As a small business we are really proud to have given so much fun and enjoyment to local families and also to have provided employment for so many and a structured work place for numerous delightful young people.”
