Great for the children

This is a family day out with those interested in showing small children and older animals close up with chance to stroke and have hands on feeding with staff supervision

Lovely day out nice walks, have heard its closing early in 2017 what a pity, It shouldn't be allowed to close, perhaps make an entry charge, I regularly take my grandchildren & put donations in the fund box provided. Maybe the need for donations should be made more obvious.

Liek the title says it's great for a family or couples day out. The farm is small but charming. They have all the farm animals and you can learn about the farm life. There is also a playground on site so kids can jump and play around.

This is a good place to relax, with or without children, who will love the playground, situated alongside the farm. There is a small tea shop and plenty of space to wander around the various pens. Anyone wishing to spend time exploring the area, can walk through the park to Marston Green, or just as far as the end of... More

We took 6 children here, ages 3 to 7, they all had a great time. There is a good sized play area, a small free farm and a few walks where you can see the planes taking off from Birmingham International. Would have been an entirely free trip out if we hadn't had tea and cake at the little cafe.... More
