Testimonials

Joe Pace
read moreFantastic place. Plenty of space for kids to run around in, and loads of toys for them to play with too. Loads of food choices. Feeding the sheep and goats was a great experience too.

Darren Truman
read moreWe visited a couple of weeks nearly two year old Arlo absolutely loved Farmer Gows and so did we! Very impressed with the general cleanliness and the designated tables etc to keep distance. It's the most comfortable and relaxed we've been out in public since the start of lockdown.
The bale climb was a massive hit, he would have spent all day switching between that, the play park and ride on tractors if we let him! It was great to get a good amount of time with the farm animals, it didn't feel rushed or too crowded out. The time slots are great because it means no one misses out!
We will definitely be back again!

read moreA fabulous asset for Oxfordshire tourism board with so much to do and see for the whole family. Staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the farm trail, open wide spaces with plenty of picnic tables to stop, rest and enjoy the beautiful scenery in this part of the County.

read moreI recommend everything about Farmer Gows, the staff were so welcoming, we loved the hands on experience, the kids (12years and 22months) enjoyed the play parks and the tractors, the trail was lovely; we bought some goat and sheep food in the shop for the trail and the animals came running up to the fence, the lunch area was cleaned and well equipped with toys which were freshly cleaned for each table, the whole place was so clean. Can not fault anything. It was such a great day out, we will definitely be back.

read moreWe visited today on the first day they opened with their new COVID 19 restrictions in place to keep us all safe. As always the staff were totally professional and the new routine was delivered smoothly. Although its not the old experience that we all know and love, the team have adapted well and provided a great day out for the kids. We still got to meet the animals, play with some toys and got some exercise too. Thanks everyone, well be back soon!

read moreMy kids and family love Farmer Gows. Staff have always been knowledgable, friendly and accommodating to us. It reminds me of spending time on a family friends farm many years ago as a child.
Simple pleasures like toy tractors for kids, a huge hay stack barn with bails and tunnels running through them and getting to spend time with and feeding the farms animals, running around in the barn Is never rushed. It is back to basics but better for it. They also have a cafe but are happy for you to also take a picnic. Would recommend for a good 4 hours out or a school trip up-to Junior age.
Reading some reviews you cant please everyone but its a working farm and not a farm masquerading as a soft play/adventure playground cash grab (you probably know the type).

read moreSuch a great day out with the kids, the team are so friendly and great with all ages. Also they come and check up on you, make sure youve done everything and tell you when things are happening. No way that the kids can escape either! Plenty of things for all ages and the hay bales are just fab. Plus actually meeting the all the big animals and feeding them, that was so good. Food is delicious and bonus that you get to buy sausages and burgers from the farm to take home

Jodie Kenny
read moreAbsolutely loved our day out today. The handling and feeding of the animals was amazing! The tractor ride which lasted about 30 minutes was also great. Would totally recommend to anyone, great for smaller children. My almost 2 year old had a great time feeding the animals! Will definitely be returning with my oldest soon

read moreAmazing time this morning at this great family day out - they did so well with everything going on at making sure everyone felt comfortable. Amazing information given. We took our 14 month old he loved climbing on the hay bales and all the other activities. Loved petting the chicks.
