Visited today with my partner and our two young children (3 and 5) after racking our brains for something to do in the holidays Quick google search threw up this as an option and we thought 'why not?' Booked online to save a few pennies (always a good idea) and away we went! I can honestly say this is one... More

Oh my goodness! We have just returned home from a day at Farmer Gow's and I can't thank them enough for such a great day. I visited with my partner and 3 and 5 year old (who has learning difficulties and can be difficult). The staff were AMAZING with all the children, we arrived just in time for the animal... More

Arrived about 10.30 and went through to the animal area where there were were hay bails to sit on, there... More

When living near Farringdon we were regulars at Farmer Gows. Our toddler loved seeing the animals and feeding the baby lambs. Really lovely to see them up close. The hay maze is good as our the little tractors. The meat is fantastic and they do gluten free sausages :0)

Excellent day out with the little ones. The kids and adults throughly enjoyed themselves and the cafe prices were excellent as was the food. Will definitely visit again.

We visited Farmer Gow's for a birthday party with our toddler and baby and we all had a great time. The staff were so friendly and helpful and our (usually shy) daughter was completely at ease with them. They continually spoke to her and encouraged her to take part, and this friendly manner meant she was relaxed and got the... More

We celebrated our son’s 3rd birthday at Farmer Gow’s and invited a number of his friends to his party. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and were very well looked after. The children had a great time handling 3-day-old chicks, feeding piglets, and bottle-feeding lambs and kid goats, then we went outside and fed the cows and collected eggs.... More

A special day out feeding & handling young animals in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. Our grand-daughter was enchanted and loved every moment of it, which meant that we could relish her enthusiasm making it even more enjoyable. Reasonably priced, it was an excellent opportunity to get a feel of a working farm.....and have a lot of fun too.

We didn't manage to see it all as we had to get home but what we did see was great. If you're looking for a glossy farm experience then this is not the place, but if like us, you prefer your farm visits more authentic and a bit rustic then this is the place to go! The toys are all... More
