The Farm Trail Scavenger Hunt
We are holding a Scavenger Hunt that runs all along our Farm Trail throughout the day. Lots to find, see and do along the way!
*Events subject to change in adverse weather conditions.
Open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
We regret that we cannot welcome dogs (except assistance dogs) onto the open farm.
Please visit our Facebook page The Open Farm at Middle Farm and hit the like button for exciting news and updates.
Entry to the open farm: £5 per person (free entry for children under 3).
Set amongst 625 acres of working farmland, and nestled under the South Downs is our open farm.
Our open farm is home to our handpicked selection of friendly farm animals and British wildlife. We also offer a special ingredient that many cannot; come along and meet the cows and calves, and watch the milking of our 100-strong Jersey dairy herd.
As well as the animals, we have our outdoor play areas and famous indoor hay play barn. Whether it’s hide and seek, time trials, or who can jump the furthest, the play barn is guaranteed to keep children, and adults alike, entertained. When it’s time to wind down, take yourself on a stroll along our nature trail which meanders its way across our picturesque farm and woodland.
