Information about visiting us during COVID-19

Autumnal days at Baylham House Farm It is always a pleasure to visit the farm and this year you’re going to be able to do so for even longer.  Not many visitors know what goes on at Baylham as the days get shorter so this year we’re giving you the opportunity to come and find out.  Wrap up warm and dry, stick your wellies on and come and have a wander. Come and see the breeding groups of sheep with their rams getting ready for lambs next Easter, the billy goats with the nannys for kids in May.  The yard will gradually fill with the pigs and cattle coming in to their winter quarters so you can get close and personal with all your favourite animals. After the October half term, from 2ndNovember, the farm will be open from 10am to 4pm, Friday to Sunday until further notice.
Halloween Half Term Fun
October half term update-
To ensure we can offer a covid secure day out and work environment we have taken the decision to do Halloween a bit differently this year.
Unfortunately we are not able to offer pumpkin carving or our spooky games area. We will however have a spooky themed quiz, with a small gift as a prize, as well as a few Halloween themed games around the farm.
As ever each child will receive a free bag of animal food upon entry.
Normal entry prices apply, no need to book in advance and we would ask that all visitors please follow the government guidelines and do not visit if you are feeling unwell.
Our shop and cafe remain closed so we are only able to offer hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks, for takeaway only.  There is seating outside and some under cover so if you wish to eat while you are here please bring a picnic. We are not able to offer our close animal encounters, such as goat grooming, to avoid clustering of visitors but you are still able to meet and feed all our animals and if you are lucky you may meet Suzanne's piglets as they wander the farm. We have, though, improved access around the lake in the form of a new nature trail which we hope you will enjoy. We look forward to welcoming you back. Thank you! Baylham House Farm

In addition to all the new born lambs, we've also had a litter of piglets born to our Large Black Ella last week & fellow Large Black Nina is due to have another litter any time this week.  There may even be the opportunity for visitors to see both lambs and the piglets being born. The farm will also be offering unique, hands on, animal encounters with visitors being able to meet, feed and cuddle Mr T, Diblet and Woolly the sheep, as well as Grace, Boy George and Gwendolyn the Golden Guernsey Goats.  The Bunny Barn will also be open, with the Baylham Bunnies on hand for cuddles and photo opportunities. As well as plenty of animals to meet and feed, the farm also has a variety of play areas, as well as a den building activity.  For grown-ups, you can relax in the café with a light lunch or one of the delicious homemade cakes. The farm is open every day, except for Mondays, from 10am – 5pm.
