How to plan a perfect day out for families at Little Farmers

Who said play was just for the little ones?! There are plenty of activities loved by all ages so adults can join in with the fun too – and with the holidays just around the corner, now is the time to plan a perfect day out for families at Little Farmers!

From farm-themed adventure play to grooming the animals and picking fresh berries at PYO, finished off with a tasty meal or snack in the café, you can be sure that the whole family will sleep well the night after a trip to Little Farmers!

Read on to find out more about why Little Farmers is the ideal day out for the family in this blog…

Adventure play

All the little farmers will get to have access to their own private party room for 2.5 hours. This is their base for the day, for the kids to slurp on The  play barn and outdoor messy sand and water play area not only look good – they were expertly designed by playground specialists Timberplay Scotland to be interactive for both adults and children. So you can help your little one clamber along the climbing frame, scoop up the sand and have some fun too!

The outdoor play area is ideal for sunny days during the holidays. Book your entry vouchers now.

Meet the animals

There is nothing like a cute animal to put a smile on everyone’s face and Little Farmers animal farm is packed with them! Each day you can come along and learn at the animal talks led by Farmer George, watch them enjoy feeding time and even have a shot at grooming the adorable Shetland ponies, sheep or goats!

When you take a wander around the rest of the farm, count how many types of animals you can spot – we have Large Black pigs, pygmy goats, donkeys, Shetland Ponies, chickens, Highland Cows, Haggis and Neeps the rabbits and Wendy, our Clydesdale horse.


All of this is included in The Chuckling Chicks party package, as well as a £5 gift voucher for the birthday child. We will send you birthday invites

A perfect day out for the family is complete when you take a trip to the farm in the summertime, grab your baskets, and fill them with juicy berries.

From mid-June strawberries are the berry of choice, with ripe raspberries not long after, followed by cherries, currants, blackcurrants and gooseberries. Turn them into your favourite summer recipes or get your fingers sticky at our jam making classes! When autumn comes around, you can pick the perfect Halloween pumpkin and fresh apples from our orchard!

Keep an eye on our PYO calendar and book your entry vouchers for the summer here.


After a busy day out you are sure to have worked up an appetite so you can stop off at the Café for a snack or meal from the Little Farmers summer menu.

Now just gather up the family and head out to the farm for the perfect family day out – our friendly staff and the animals can’t wait to greet you!
