What a lovely little farm this is! Very easy to find and good value for money - only a couple of quid per adult. Fairly small parking area at the front, however, there is an overflow car park near by which is easily sign posted. You purchase the tickets (sticker badges) inside the little shop area which also sells food... More

Thank you for your review Jeanette. What a shame it rained when you were visiting, you will have to come back again on a dry day. We do horse rides every weekend throughout the year, also during Knowsley school holidays and Bank Holidays - same applies to the Small Animal Pettings. We hope you will come back and see us...

My eldest daughter (3) loves coming here. Being allowed to get so close to the animals is really good, especially being allowed to feed the goats and chickens (you have to pay for the feed, but it's not expensive). It's not a big site, but there are plenty of animals to take in. Personal favourites are the pigs, who never... More

Thank you for your review Neil D - your comment about the pigs made us laugh out loud. There is a lot of mud which our pigs seem to particularly enjoy wallowing in, as every good pig should really! We hope you come back and see us soon More

Excellent idea, a farm in an urban area, so local kids can learn about these things. Easy to find (sign posted) and enjoyable day out with plenty to see and do.

We've been taking our children here for a few years. It's a lovely place to visit. At times there is horse riding available which they love. There is a petting area, you sit on hay bales and staff bring small animals to pet. There is feed on sale, a gift shop, organic meat, veg, plants to buy. A couple of... More

I visit this farm regular with my two nieces and it is such a cute little farm! Considering it's quite small there is still so much to do! You can ride on the horses, but food to feed the animals, go into a little petting part where you can stroke and hold the little animals. My favourite animals are meerkats... More

What a lovely little place to spend a few hours with little ones. We went with family who were visiting for the weekend and a 2 year old. Loved the outdoor picnic facilities and how accessible it was as my dad can't walk very well. Enjoyed feeding the animals up close and the little one enjoyed the park and the... More
