At Barleylands we believe we are experts in our field at teaching people of all ages about farming, the countryside and traditional crafts.

Get ready for free range family fun at Barleylands Farm Park & Craft Village. Packed with excitement, say hello to cuddly farmyard friends, run wild in the indoor play or jump aboard the tractor and trailer ride. Plus new from March 2013, your ticket includes a ride on Derek the miniature diesel train (complete with its own railway station).

With so many things to do; join in with daily animal activities; watch the magnificent bird of prey shows or dash to the outdoor adventure play area. And for wet weather days, take refuge in the Play Barn with fast slides and a multi-level playframe. Or take on Mum and Dad in the Ball Blaster indoor arena.

Making the countryside fun is all what Barleylands is about. And for all those wannabe farmers, indulge them with a tip to the onsite Discovery Centre, home to vintage tractors and interactive exhibits.

Next to Barleylands Farm Park, you will also discover Barleylands Craft Village (a great place for gifts), bi-monthly farmers markets, a cafe and a la carte restaurant. Plus annually the site transforms into the Essex Country Show.
