The pricing below shows a farm’s price range for different types of visitors. It includes prices for all-day and half-day visits, playing inside or outside and any other ticket types the farm offers. If you’re bringing little ones, we define toddlers as aged 0-2yrs old but each farm defines them differently. Some split babies (0-1yrs old) and toddlers (1-3yrs old) so it’s best to check on-site before booking.

The recommendation to book in advance is down to one of two things; the farm often fills up and has to turn away people on the door or it’s cheaper to book before-hand. It’s usually the latter!
