my friend and myself visited The Rare Breeds Farm at Baylham, nr Ipswich, Suffolk yesterday. We took three children aged between 1 and 3.
Firstly, I need to comment on the fantastic lunch that we had. We each had a ham roll, when I complimented the staff on the quality of the food they informed me that the bread is baked fresh every day in their farm kitchen. The ham is also "made" on the farm. The ham was fresh, generously cut and generously placed in each roll. All food is all baked fresh every day in their farm kitchen. We did not have space to try one of their cakes but these looks delicious too. My expection when I ordered the lunch was at best a mediocre offering but what I actually received was far far far above my initial expectations. I will certainly go back again to sample more of their food!!!!
We spent a good 4 hours actually looking around the farm. The paths around the animal paddocks, although grass, were easy to push our buggies on and the children ran around freely all day ... and wore themselves out !!! There was a very good selection of animals to see "up close and personal". The children were each given a free bag of food with an explanation of how to feed each different type of animal. There were some small goats and lambs roaming that the children could pat and touch to feel their coats. There were hand washing facilities with warm water (I was expecting cold water!, so lovely to find it warm).
The entry fee was £6.00 each for the adults and the littlies were free. I would grade this as an excellent day out at a very reasonable price. The children loved it and were worn out by the time we left and soon all fast asleep in the car!!! All in all a lovely experience.
