The Farmer Palmer Christmas experience was excellent! We visited with our 6yr old son and he thought it was fantastic! Wonderful to see the team at the park really getting into the Christmas spirit! They have clearly put a lot of effort into the decorating! Odd socks and Mrs Christmas was great fun and interactive with the kids in the Christmas kitchen! We met an Elf who showed us the toy shop and led us into a Magical forest for a photo opportunity on a couple of sleds! Whilst walking through the experience you also get a chance to see the animals in the barn which was nice! Before meeting the Big Man we met Blitzen and Comet for a Christmas sing along! Then the big moment the kids are all waiting for... seeing Farmer Christmas and his beeutiful Snow Fairy assistant and manager..it takes a lot to organise Christmas you know! Harry (our son) had a chance to have a chat with Farmer Christmas and discuss what he thinks we should leave out for him and the reindeer this Christmas Eve. With that a picture and an unexpected fist bump to seal the Christmas deal we were off to see Santa’s Head Elf to pick up a lovely present!

All in all the experience was very well thought out and it looks like it’s going from strength to strength! Well worth booking and if your to late for this year then get in early for next time!

Food served in the Hen house was delicious! Kids meal and adults meals an decent prices!
Hot choc or non alcoholic mulled wine with a gingerbread on offer at the winter kiosk was a great touch!

Thanks to all the team for the great Christmas experience!

A wonderful christmas experience, a big thank you to all the team as it was magical and memorable. The event was well organised, lots to look at, the staff were helpful especially taking photos and the wooden toy in the chimney was beautiful.
A brilliant farm park too with so many things to see and do, we love it!

loved it. Queue was dealt with really well and the kids loved waiting for the bell to go onto the next square, the panto section was really interactive and entertaining, the queue didn't actually feel like a queue at all because of the different pit stops and the staff were so good with offering to take pics so there were ones of us all together. I did wince a little at the price but on reflection, the effort from the staff and the efforts to set it all up were well worth it. I had a 5 year old and a 2 year old and the whole experience lasted around 20/25 minutes but did not feel this long at all because of the different stages and photo stops.The chimney idea at the end was also very exciting for them both and we were given the option of a gift which isn't hugely important but does mean the children really loved the gifts and are more likely to get more use out of them. Highly recommend!

We spent a wonderful day here despite the freezing weather today!
Highlights were the time in the Big barn feeding the goats and cuddling a guinea pig!
All the staff were amazing, especially the girls in the Big barn and a young lad we think is called Adam who worked solidly despite being by himself and in bitterly cold weather.
He showed us the way to the barn and we were impressed by his work ethic and impeccable manners!
Our first visit back in 20 years with our granddaughter, we used to come with her Mum and it’s still well worth a visit!
The food is lovely too

We are regulars at Farmer Palmer's and have been annual pass holders since my son was 18 months old (he has just turned 4). I just love how everything is thought of to make a day out with kids (of any age) as easy as possible. The staff always go out of their way to make us feel welcome and my son feel special - he knows many of them by name now. The food is always delicious with some lovely healthy options (unlike a lot of similar attractions). Our latest visit for Halloween lived up to and exceeded our expectations. As a family, we are not really into Halloween but wanted a half term visit. We were able to get into the spirit of it as everything was just on the fun side of 'spooky' and nothing was too over the top. It is so nice to see the team with various levels of experience working together and supporting each other to give the kids such an exciting day. We especially enjoyed the 'soak a spook' tractor ride and the pumpkin pick. It is also lovely to see Farmer Palmer himself getting involved in every aspect. Really looking forward to our Christmas visit now (and some more visits before then!)

Another wonderful day spent at the farm. There is so much to do for the kids to keep them entertained. The new dinosaur trail and maize maze is great fun. Everyone had lots of fun on the tractor going to soak a spook. It's incredible to see Farmer Palmer himself interacting with the kids as well as tiding up any litter he found. All in all a really enjoyable day.

Went to farmer parmers with my grandchildren. They loved it. Was amazed at one comment saying the barn play area could set off a child's ashma Seriously? Farms are full of hay!!!!
Pigs were very cute. I often wondered though, what happens to the male pigs once they have grown? Or shouldn't I ask? Is that another dumb question 😕

No questions are dumb and everyone’s interpretation of things is different. Such as our straw barn…
