This is the most fabulous place. A season ticket is so cheap that I can take my 18month old as often as we like. There is so much to see and do, the staff are all so friendly and helpful and always willing to answer any questions you may have. Such wonderful demonstrations going on all the time and a wonderful cafe and shop on sight. A must see place

Usual farm things, pigs and piglets, chicks, lambs. Shire horses etc. Very interesting seeing them plough with shire horses.
The children enjoyed holding the chicks and feeding the lambs.
The cafe was lovely, and the man who served us very pleasant and went to a lot of trouble. Nice food.

We decide to visit the working farm on Easter Monday . On arrival it's was nice not to have to pay to park. We really enjoyed walking around , everything was sign posted extremely well , and plenty of toilet facilities around the site, all the staff on site were very friendly and very informative and we were able to watch some craftsman in action . We stopped for drink at the cafe again the staff really friendly but I did think a tea coffee and two flapjacks for £7 was just a tad expensive , but I suppose they have to make their money ,however there are some lovely spots for a picnic and you are able to take in some breath taking views, the farm is child friendly and encourages them to be involved if they so wish. All in all an enjoyable visit

Although it was a Good Friday we had no problems parking. Lots to see and good facilities. Food was really good and it was nice to see so many families with small children enjoying this working farm.

We visited here on Sunday which was it's 2nd day of opening in the new season, although there was nothing to give this impression as everything was so well organised. We had a marvellous day from start to finish and were very impressed. Lots of baby animals - lambs and piglets, and other animals including ducks, geese, horses, a donkey, sheep, pigs. Other highlights for us were the griddle scone making, the flax-seed planting, and watching the horses pull the plough, not forgetting the joy that we had in watching our 2 year old daughter give a bottle of milk to a very young lamb.
We took a picnic as I usually do not think that the catering is very good at attraction, however the next time that we visit here, we will eat at The School House as everything looked fantastic and it was lovely to talk to the chef and hear about how he had picked the spinach for the soup at 7am that morning. The soup looked absolutely delicious, as did the home-made pate. I did however think that the slices of cake could have been a little more generous for £2 - the victoria sponge in particular.
We loved our day here and we met such lovely, friendly, helpful people who work here. We ended up staying for 5 hrs and if we lived a little closer, would certainly have purchased an annual pass. I would highly recommend a visit to here.
