Today we visited St Augstines Farm for the first time and I wanted to get a post live as soon as I could. We absolutely loved our day there. St Augustines Farm is situated along the A38 in Arlingham as you head towards Gloucester. A little more out of the way if you’re Bristol based but really easily accessible from the A38 and M5. It opens at 10am Friday and Saturday during term time and Friday – Monday during the school holidays.
St Augustines Farm is a working farm and you’re really made to feel part of that during your day there. You can get involved with feeding the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens, watch the calves have their milk, even hold and feed the guinea pigs they have on the farm. There is a chicken coop that you can wonder around in as well as a “rabbit shed” with free roaming rabbits. You can purchase food for the animals from the reception.
As well as the farm animals there are also barns filled with toys/tractors/activities and two large outdoor play areas. There is also a water play area at the top of the farm that Arthur enjoyed building dams in and letting the boats through. There are tractor rides chargeable at £1.50 per person that run throughout the day.
No questions were too much trouble for the staff at St Augustines Farm; they answered the endless questions from children with ease and enthusiasm.
The farm has a small café selling various hot and cold food and snacks as well as hot drinks and ice cream. There is also a little on site shop with a few toys and gifts available to purchase. When we visited today the farm were doing a “bug bingo” and Arthur won a mini puzzle as a result.
