At Thrift Farm there is a great deal to do and see. Spread over a 52 acre working farm our attractions include the Farm Park, café, garden centre and shop.

There is an animal adoption scheme which includes free entry to the Farm Park on Adopter Day plus a goody bag and much more besides.

In addition, there is a poultry boarding service, so if you go on holiday your chickens can too.

Why not visit the café? Serving delicious homemade food and drinks at great prices. Treat yourself to a sumptuous afternoon tea or a slice of freshly baked cake, or simply drop in for a cappuccino. Kid’s lunchboxes are available to eat in or take out to the Farm Park.

You are welcome to bring a picnic and linger as long as you wish, as there are picnic tables sited right next to the children's activity play area.

Throughout the year there are special events too, so follow the Facebook page for details of the next one.

In the garden centre you’ll find a variety of shrubs, perennials, bedding flowers, herbs and hanging baskets. The gift shop sells delicious free range eggs, from the chickens, ducks and geese at the farm, a range of toys, cards and gifts at amazing prices, plus feeders, bowls, guinea pig and rabbit food, hay and much more.

Children's birthday parties can be held at Thrift Farm with party packages available from just £8.50 per child.
