We adventured out to Ouseburn Charity and Community farm.
We parked on lime street, which was a £1 for an hour. The maximum parking is 4 hours and if you have a blue badge, you can park free.
You have to pay via card on the machines, However, the sign states that if you need to pay by cash; you can do this over at the Ouseburn trust.
The farm free entry but they hugely relay on donations, even if you paid a pound per person. As a charity, they rely on their visitors’ donations to help care for our animals and work with vulnerable adults. It really makes an difference and you must book beforehand.
On arrival, there is a sign in desk, they will take your name and tick you off. Entry will be via the farm car park where you can sign in at the meet and greet point.
There is hand sanitiser and also a outdoor sink for you to wash your hands too.
You must observe the rule of 6/family bubbles.
The toilets were open and so was the shop. We got some animal feeding packs from the shop, these were a pound each, you had to pay via card.
They have the food packs available for the pigs, goats and chickens. The girls loved feeding the animals and made the experience even better.
You can also purchase farm produce, plants, toys, gifts, books and prints from the shop.
It’s only a small farm but it was such a nice day out, the girls enjoyed it. They got to see sheep, cows, pigs, bunnies, chickens, and much more. You had to come out the site to go around to see the cow and sheep.
They often run regular event schedule which includes animal petting and feeding sessions, drawing classes and child- friendly activities to entertain and educate during school holidays.
A leaflet with a map or more signage would of been great to help us navigate this but we just sort of followed everyone else. Staff were really helpful too when it come to asking questions and directions.
They booking slots are only an hour long but you have plenty of time to get around the farm with it only being a small one.
I feel this farm is so much better, when you first want to take your child to the farm but they’ve never experienced the environment before.
Ouseburn Farm is also family friendly and it’s easily accessible for both pushchairs and wheelchairs.
The scenery of Ouseburn is beautiful too, great for a walk around after. They are so close to the horse stables and seven stories.
There is plenty of places around to eat and drink too.
