Get ready for free range family fun at Barleylands Farm Park. Packed with excitement there’s so much to do whatever the weather. Say hello to farmyard friends big and small, meet birds of prey, run wild in the indoor play or jump aboard the tractor & trailer ride and join in changing daily activities.

New for 2014! With the brand new indoor animal barn you can now get even closer to the animals and join in hands on activities. From February half term this will include animal bottle feeding every day! A huge indoor sand pit is also new to the farm, next to the ball blasting arena.

Daily timetabled activities in the farm park vary and can include bird of prey flying shows, hilarious ‘Lamb National’ sheep racing, cooking in the Barleylands Kitchen, petting cute guinea pigs and bunnies and more. Plus you’ll find extra special events every school holiday including babies galore at Easter and spooky happenings for Halloween.

On sunny days head to the outdoor adventure areas complete with an enormous jumping pillow, zip wire, climbs and slides to explore. Children can even take to mini tractors to transport themselves around the farm park! Interested in the history of farming? Head to Farmer Peter’s Discovery Centre to see a host of vintage tractors, machines and interactive exhibits.

Next to Barleylands Farm Park, you’ll also discover Barleylands Craft Village. A great place for unusual handmade gifts and seeing crafter in action it also hosts bi-monthly farmers markets, and boasts an Italian cafe and an a la carte restaurant. Plus annually the site transforms into the Essex Country Show which will include appearances from Peppa Pig in 2014.

Barleylands is at Barleylands Road, Billericay, Essex, CM11 2UD. For more information visit www.barleylands.co.uk or call 01268 532253
