Suitable for all ages
Venue type: Outdoor
Shortwood Family Farm offers an authentic farm experience for the whole family where you can experience the sights, sounds, and even the smells of a traditional working farm. So get your wellies on and prepare for an enjoyable day with the family where you can frolic in the Herefordshire countryside!
In the mornings at 10:00, and again at 13:30, you can join in the animal feeding tour, where you will be taken around the farmyard by one of their enthusiastic guides to meet and make friends with the animals and cuddle baby animals such as chicks or guinea pigs!
You can also feed the pigs (and watch them racing!), hand milk a cow, collect eggs, and even bottle feed the lambs (in season). The tours take about 2 hours, you can ask as many questions as you like, and all the animal food is free! If you prefer to walk around the farm at your own pace, you can download free guides from their website through our link.
This is a genuine operating farm with free range pigs wallowing happily in the mud, lovely cows to milk, strutting cockerels, butting goats and more! There are also some lovely donkeys and miniature Shetland ponies to meet. The kids will absolutely love it, especially if there is a new batch of calves, kittens or piglets available for stroking! The admission price includes the feeding tour, entry into a farm exhibition, plus a tractor ride, weather permitting.
