Northamptonshire Family Fun Farms

Kids love a farm trip and we are lucky to have some fab places to visit in Northamptonshire.

My top 3 to visit are Mini Meadows, West Lodge Rural Centre and Rookery Open farm.

Naseby Road, NN6 6HZ
Mini Meadows Farm

Open everyday (including every bank holiday)
Opening hours: 10am – 5pm

I love this little farm with lots of animals to feed, Guinea pigs to cuddle, outdoor play area and indoor huge sand pit.  The farm also has a new cafĂ© which is lovely.  Our hens were purchased here so if you fancy having some pet chickens this is definitely the place. It is amazing value for money and my kids love it.
