Meet, touch and even feed farm animals at Easton Farm Park near Martlesham in Suffolk! Choose from traditional activities including pony and cart rides.
Easton Farm Park has been specially developed for families with children under 11 years of age with the focus on traditional farm activities and attractions. It’s a brilliant place to spend the day or afternoon and has excellent indoor activities in the playbarn too incase you need to shelter from any wet weather. As well as pony back and pony and cart rides your children can choose from the Family Train and a Barrel Bug ride – both of which are great fun!
Holding and Feeding
Interaction with the animals is actively encouraged at this Farm and if you time it right your family can experience touching and feeding lambs, kids, chicks and rabbits – a really great way to get them close to live nature in a wonderfully rural farmyard setting. Many of the animals are born and bred at Eastern Farm.
If the weather turns, don’t fear – Easton Farm Park is prepared! Many of the animals are undercover so you can shelter from passing showers without missing out on cooing time. If the rain looks set to stay then you can dash between the indoor attractions which really are a lot of fun – choose from the indoor soft playbarn, the coffee shop or the brand new “Go Barmy” barn, especially for the under 10s with a huge play area, indoor electric tractors and a safe toddler section.
Down by the river
Surrounding the Farm are stunning water meadows leading down to the River Deben – a great place for a family picnic and with everything so close to hand you can leave the picnic in the car in the morning and go and fetch it before heading down to the banks of the River. The animal watching doesn’t stop at the park, on the way to the river you may spot deer, otters, herons and kingfishers!
