Lambs at Farmer Gow's


Farmer Gow's has been welcoming families for many years.  Animals are central to this unique ‘hands on’ learning through activity farm.  Four large barns contain all weather activities and picnic areas.

You can handle tiny chicks, bottle and hand feed lambs and goat kids, tickle the piggies and collect freshly laid eggs.  The farm is the 'favourite place on earth' for lots of our young visitors'.

Daily workshop ~ Meet the Chicks, Meet the Animals Meet the Fowl are held daily throughout the year.  See the farm’s Home page for timings to help plan your visit.  There are always lambs and kids to bottle feed.  Pigs, cows and goats to hand feed.  Eggs to collect and chicks to handle.

Then there are pedal tractors to drive, bales to climb, an adventure play area and an indoor activity area for under 5’s.  From April – October (weather dependant) there are trailer rides which take you across the farm to feed the sheep or pigs.  Every visit is a unique experience.  The farm lies within the Vale of White Horse at Uffingham.
