“Okay but not really a real farm shop is it?”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Looking around what is for sale ..Most of the stuff in here is commercially mass produced stuff, not local traders and farmers produce.. butchers is okay but when I asked the butcher where the beef was from he was evasive - so would question whether the meat was local and outdoor..

“Fantastic place to visit”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is such a great place to visit - and they have activities on all through the year so theres always something to keep the children entertained - alongside the animals (goats, sheep, pigs, cows, donkeys, chickens etc) The food is just fantastic, you'll never lack for quality here!

“Great time!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Came today with my parents & 4 kids! We had a brill time. The tractor ride to the pumpkin patch was fun, even though the queue was long it didn't take long at all for our turn. The kids each picked & then carved a pumpkin. Great fun & reasonably priced too.

“A lovely local attraction”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Just been to farmer Copley's for the first time for their annual pumpkin festival.We had a really lovely afternoon, my 3 year old loved choosing her own pumpkin and then painting it, entrance was free and prices for the pumpkins and painting activity were reasonable.
There were a few animals pig's, goats, sheep and chickens and a lovely cafe, however the service was quite slow took almost 15 minuets just for one hot drink and two cold ones. We loved the tractor ride to and from the pumpkin field.
There is also a massive corn maize and play park which looked great fun but we had a very tired little one so didn't partake on this occasion but will go back another day .
All in all a lovely afternoon with the family.

“Good quality food, and good value deals”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Combined with the farm shop the cafe has some excellent food, although this is definitely not the cheapest place to get a hot sandwich. Check out the daily specials which are very good value, proper hot meal and dessert etc.
