BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND


Sat 25th– Mon 28th May

Sat 25th– Mon 28th May (ONLY)

Autumn may seem a long way ahead, but on farms all over the country crops are being planted and nurtured for Autumn harvest – including the Lower Drayton Farm pumpkin patch!

Visit us over the bank holiday weekend and every child can plant their own pumpkin seed in our pumpkin patch – if you come back to see us during Halloween half term, you can hunt for the pumpkin you planted!

As well as planting a pumpkin, visitors will be able to enjoy a spring-themed quiz trail and craft activity, meet our friendly animals, hop on Farmer Ray’s the fun and educational farm trailer ride, bottle feed our orphan lambs, spot spring flora and fauna on the nature trail and let off steam on the adventure playground. There’s also the family-friendly Staffs Fest music festival happening on the same weekend and you’ll be able to browse the music tents and street food stalls as part of your entry fee to the farm (until 5pm, access to music festival after this time will require you to purchase wristbands). PLEASE NOTE: The attraction will not be open for the rest of summer half term week

Why not join us for a fun-packed day in the countryside for all the family?

Refreshments

Our on-site coffee bar offers drinks, refreshments, snacks and ice cream, while our outdoor food wagon serves hot food.

Clothing and footwear

Please remember we are a working farm and our pathways are grass not concrete, so bring footwear suitable for the weather. Wellies are always welcome and on sunny days don’t forget to bring a ready stock of sun cream and a sun hat. We also suggest packing a warmer layer or lightweight waterproofs in the car whatever the weather – you’ll be spending most of your time outdoors, and it’s always worth planning for every eventuality with the great British weather.

Facilities

Toilets and baby nappy changing facilities are available on site.

Accessiblity

We welcome visitors in wheelchairs and with pushchairs to Lower Drayton Farm, but please note that the attraction is on grass and some paths on the nature trail may be unsuitable for wheelchair access. Disabled parking is situated close to reception.

No dogs

Sorry, as Lower Drayton Farm is a working farm we can’t allow visitors to bring their dogs on site.
We understand that dogs are part of the family and don’t want to spoil your fun – however, dogs can spread neosporosis contamination; a parasitic infection that can lead to abortion and stillbirth in cattle. We therefore urge visitors to please leave their dogs at home as it’s dangerous to leave them in cars for even a few minutes in warm weather. Thanks for your understanding.

Special events

Special events take place at the farm regularly throughout the year, from Country Fairs through to music festivals, Spooktacular Fireworks displays and our ‘Winter Wonderfarm’ experience. Additional charge applies for entry to these events over and above the entry fee for the fun farm attraction.

Throughout the year, the fun farm itself also hosts special themed days – additional attractions like animal experiences (meet the meerkats / falconry) and seasonal activities like Easter Egg Hunts, Pond dipping, nature trails and special crafts all of which may be subject to additional charge.
