At Aldenham Country Park we have an open children's educational farm. It is a working farm with a wide variety of animals from small to large, including birds, poultry, alpacas, geese, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, goats, sheep, pigs and cows.
Dogs are welcome on the farm, however they must stay on the lead and be kept under control at all times.
Activities on the farm
- Feed the animals! - You can purchase animal feed from the Farm Shop - £3 for 1 bag, or £5 for 3 bags. Please respect the signs next to each of the animal pens to ensure the correct food is given to the right animals.
- Pet the animals! - At 10.30am and1.30pm (subject to change) you can get to know, and pet some of our smaller animals on Lower Farm. (Free with Farm Entry)
- Play Barn and The Snug - Have fun in our newly refurbished Play Barn features a colourful soft play area, ride-on tractors, and a bouncy castle! Or relax in The Snug Room
- Egg collecting - Every day at 12:00, join the farmer on a tour around the farm looking at our different breeds of chickens, then go inside the layer chickens' coop to collect a tray of eggs. Each egg collector then gets to choose 6 of their eggs to take home! £9.95 per child and an accompanying adult - book online below
Our Egg Collecting sessions run throughout the year, and we also have seasonal activities during school holidays and during different farming seasons, so keep an eye out for new workshops and sessions on the website and on Facebook!
