The perfect venue for a fantastic day out, the whole family can enjoy.

Here at the farm we have a magnificent variety of animals and birds. You will have the opportunity to feed, touch and interact with the animals or just relax on the decking overlooking the duck pool with its tranquil waterfall.

The Hayrack Cafe is a welcoming place, open daily serving a delicious range of freshly prepared 'home-style' snacks and cooked meals. The childrens menu is always popular. We also serve an impressive selection of tempting home bakes, cakes and biscuits plus a large selection of the famous 'Kellys Ice Cream'.

Our outdoor decking area is the perfect place to relax and watch your little ones amuse themselves on our fun filled adventure playground which will keep them occupied for hours!
