“Absolutely fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

We had a wonderful day can't believe i didn't know about this place and I have lived in Chester 30
Years !! So much to do and see an very hands on. You can feed the animals and they have a zoo status so it's not just farm animals they have monkeys, snakes, alpaca, porcupines and so much more. The tractor ride which works out 70-90p each takes 20 mins horses do tricks, animals run after the tractor and there is a commentary and music. There are loads of rides for the children and a bouncy tale tickets are 90p each or 10 tickets for £7. Great day out we all enjoyed it so much. I am hard to please and everything wAs fab.

“Great day out for everyone.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2011

I took a group of nursery children aged between 2 and 4 years of age for a day trip to Greenacres Farm and everyone had a wonderful time. We arrived about 10.30am and started off by feeding the goats (special food is available to buy at the entrance) and then the pigs. Then we wandered over to "Pet's Corner" where there is a special area for the animals to come out and be bottle fed by (have to say that the little one's are a lot braver than me LOL) the visitors. We fed some lambs and some goats and the children loved this but not as much as when the baby rabbits and chicks came out for a cuddle. Followed closely by some adorable puppies. I think everyone wanted to take them home :)
Afterwards we went to the barn for our packed lunch where there was also a children's entertainer doing some magic tricks. There is a cafe here but we didn't use it on this visit as like I said, we all took a packed lunch. The barn is set out with long tables and seating and plenty of room and also great if it's raining outside.
After lunch we went on the tractor ride which had been booked when we arrived. The children, again, loved this. The "farmer" played Old MacDonald's Farm and the children sang along as we set off looking for some animals.
Tractor ride over and just time to go off and feed the ducks before heading home.
Overall, this is a great place for families and/or groups to go and visit and watch some of the work that goes on daily on the farm and would recommend this place to anyone.
