Barleylands Farm Zoos
Barleylands Farm, Barleylands Rd
Barleylands Farm Centre is accessed from our large, free car park. Children of all ages can meet and feed our friendly farm animals, ride the mini tractors around the farm and let off steam in the adventure play area.
Come along and visit the chicks in the hatchery, cuddle a rabbit in the bunny barn and feed the ducks and geese on the pond. The Miniature Steam Train runs on summer Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays. Shady picnic areas can be found in our Spinney Walk or enjoy your picnic in the sunshine at the Adventure Playground, beside Reception, near the Wishing Well or in the Craft Village. Most of our picnic benches are suitable for easy access for wheelchair users. Handwashing facilities are available at the entrance/exit to the farm.
The Agricultural Museum is housed in a new farm building and shows a collection of exhibits and tools from a bygone age, depicting rural life from the 18th Century to the 20th Century. Barleylands has over 1,000 exhibits, which include a pair of Fowler steam ploughing engines, vintage tractors, corn grinding mill, coopers and cobbler's tools, various agricultural, rural and domestic implements. The potato growing and wheat growing displays are particularly interesting.
