Ray Bower, Lower Drayton Farm

Fun on the Farm!

** Closed this summer, apart from 'Maize Maze week' Sat 17th – Mon 26th August, hope you can join us!**
We are a family fun farm in Penkridge, near Stafford, offering lots for families to do in the countryside.
We’ve got friendly animals to look at, an adventure playground, nature trail, a woodland walk, tractor and trailer rides with Farmer Ray, and great seasonal activities always on offer.
During the summer months, you can also take on the challenge of the Maize Maze! 
Pull on your wellies and join us for some outdoor fun and adventure! We are easy to find, on the A449 between Penkridge and Stafford just a few minutes from J13 of the M6.

Take on the Maize Maze challenge down on the farm!
Sat 17th – Mon 26th August
For 10 days only this summer we’re opening the gates to our full fun farm attraction, offering families the chance to spend a day in the country, learn about farming – and take on the challenge of our Maize Maze!
The farm trailer ride will focus on all the summer activity that’s going on around the farm, whilst the nature trail and woodland walks will be bursting with summertime flora and fauna to discover.  All this plus lots of friendly animals to meet and an adventure playground where the kids can let off steam.

Due to work on our new farm attraction we are closed this summer with the exception of 'Maize Maze week' in August (date to follow)

Our plans to transform a number of existing agricultural buildings into a state-of-the-art play and education centre for families have been unveiled.

Our outdoor ‘Fun Farm’ attraction opened back in 2011, welcoming families during school holidays with a firm emphasis on educating the public about life on a working farm.

The next phase of developments include the conversion of existing agricultural and storage buildings into a new indoor play barn, animal viewing and interaction areas, new woodland walk and outdoor play areas.

We anticipate the creation of around 25 new jobs for the initial launch, with the number employed set to increase as the attraction expands in subsequent phases.

Work will start on the new attraction in the new year, with an anticipated opening date in summer 2019.

We will continue to open to visitors during school holidays up until the launch – including lamb feeding in February half term, Easter-themed activities during the Easter break and seasonal farm-related topics in summer half term.
