What a great experience for both me and my little girl. We saw a lamb being born and then were able to keep 'checking back' on its progress for the next couple of hours we were there. She had cuddles with a chick, duck and lamb and we went on the (free) tractor ride up to the fields where older lambs were frolicking around. Great views of the South Coast from up here too - we could see the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth.
I was very impressed with the whole set up, especially given that they are only open for a few weeks a year. There were many happy, helpful volunteers. There were plenty of loos and hand-washing stations. There were some food and drink options available, reasonably priced. I would say that planning for afternoon tea and cake would work well, but only plan an actual meal if you like burgers (these were freshly cooked and were being enjoyed by others but as a veggie I didn't try them).
Note that there is a wonderful little park in the middle of Slindon (100m away) that would suit younger kids if you need to break things up a bit or have a picnic. Wristbands at the farm mean you can come and go as you please during the day.
This was well worth the £5 entrance fee (cash only). I hope we can return every year.
