Wroxham Barns Junior Farm

We are currently holidaying in Norfolk and yesterday we decided to visit Wroxham BarnsΒ Junior Farm as it was a beautiful sunny day and Bella is completely obsessed with animals so we knew she would enjoy herself. We have visited Wroxham Barns for lunch once before when we were visiting family but didn’t actually go into the farm.

When we arrived the car park was particularly busy but when we actually got into the farm it was surprisingly much quieter than we expected. The entry fee is Β£6.25 per adult and under 2s go free. We were given wrist bands so we could come and go as we pleased which I thought was a great idea as it meant we go and have lunch then come back if we wished. There is also the option to purchase a paper bag of animal food for 50p so you can feed the animals as you go around the farm, we decided to do this and chose a bag of food for the big animals rather than for the poultry. Although make sure you read the signs and don’t feed it to the Pygmy goats like my husband did, as they are on special diets πŸ˜‰

The farm is fairly small but big enough to keep Bella interested the whole way around. All of the animals were super friendly and as soon as you came near they would bound over as they knew you had food for them! We saw various breeds of goats, sheep, cows, donkies, ponies, a couple of different breeds of pigs including extremely cute micro pigs! There was a also lots of different poultry animals including chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese. Our favourites were probably the pygmy goats and the micro pigs who we genuinely would have taken home with us if we could!

Overall we really enjoyed our visit to the farm, Bella loved feeding the animals herself and I’m sure we will return next time we are in the area.

    Oh lovely photography! The boys absolutely adore farms and cows in this house, they are very much into visiting the play farms around our area too! H x

      Thanks lovely! Bella loves animals and is lucky enough to go to a nursery on a working farm so she gets to see lots of different ones every week! xo
