Came here with my young daughter on easter monday. First of all, they sell animal feed, but no animals actually want to be fed. In fact there was loads of hens, but in terms of goats/sheep etc to be fed with the feed there was about 8. None of which showed any interest in the food. Pig looked in a... More

There's always plenty of animals on show and the arnt caged in, with plenty of room in the enclosures. Animal petting is available along with horse riding at a small extra cost.... More

well we went to acorn farm today 21.05.2015, and we thought it was farmtastic, only £2.50 for adults and £1.50, the bags of feed for 50p really make the day, there is every farm animal and surprises like meercats, the play area and picnic area is impressive and the shop is reasonable priced too

Had an amazing day. We started the day off by going to the local "Kirkby town centre" where we went to a cafe and had a lovely breakfast. We then drove the 5 minute journey to the farm. Lots of animals to see and the kids were abkle to feed them. Very cheap day out and great value for money.... More

We visited acorn farm for Mother's Day. We had a brilliant day out which was cheap as chips. Well worth going in to the half hour, small animal petting area for a small charge. We had our lunch in the cafe. It gets busy in there at lunch times.

Been here on a number of times. Great for a low cost family day out, Cheap too. Lovely café on site that is cheap enough. Picnic facilities if you wish to keep the cost down. We have bought some beautiful hanging baskets here in the past.
