What began as a zoo with a fairground attached has evolved into an exciting yet eccentric family-run park.
Mr Birch, 29, is the son of a fairground showman and spent his formative years touring fair sites around Yorkshire.
Mr Breeze said he hoped to find an alternative site for the fairground in the local area.
The fun of the fairground also came to life at this year's fair, with an impressive exhibition of showman's engines.
Attractions will include a fairground , five-a-side football, food and stalls.
Staff have begun moving the remaining animals out of its zoo and mothballing the fairground .
Other family attractions include a fairground , vintage car display, trade stands and helicopter rides.
