Fun on the Farm!

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.

lamb feeding
Work due to start on huge new indoor play area!

Due to work scheduled to start soon we won’t be hosting the Winter Wonderfarm event this year – however, we will be open again during school holidays in 2019 – including lamb feeding in Feb Half Term. Watch this space for details!

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.
