Church Farm in Stow Bardolph, england

Today we went to Church Farm in Stow Bardolph, Norfolk, U.K.. It’s around 1.5 hours drive from where we live.

We first went to visit the animals in the barn as they are the nearest to the entrance. For some if the animals you can climb into the first pen to get a closer look and pet them.

There is a larger outdoor petting area just outside the barn. When we were there we saw some chickens and rabbits. They were walking around in the fenced field and we can go in and pet them.

Opposite it is another outdoor petting area for sheep.

More animals can be found in this larger semi-open barn. Same as the first semi-open barn we saw, some of the pens have an extra pen area for your to get a closer look of them.

We went back outside to visit more animals.

There is a huge playground with various play equipment. J loved it. There is also a football pitch near the tractor ride.

We brought lunch in the cafe and sat outside on the picnic table.

We watched the pig race which was super fun. All the kids were literally running along with the pigs! The pigs were running in their own track while the kids ran outside the track.
We had several animal encounters. In the picture J was holding a rat. He also got to hold guinea pig and pet a horse.

It was a really beautiful day.

We loved the tractor ride. Lovely way to take a look at the whole farm. We were very lucky to get the first seat and got a closer look at all the amazing parts of a real tractor.
Some quiet time at the sand pit.

We really enjoyed the farm seeing all the animals and we love all the activities provided. The farm is spacious. All equipment is well maintained.
