About Mini Meadows

Set in 12 acres of the rolling Northamptonshire countryside in the village of Welford, is Mini Meadows Farm, a specialist breeder of rare and unusual poultry (and hybrid egg laying machines).

We now have a lovely little children’s farm boasting a large array of cute, not so cute, small and not so small farm animals, so come and see what we have to show you.

Visitors both young an old get enormous pleasure from meeting our animals. For many it’s a way of transforming pictures they see in books into a living experience..

We think our little farm is great but don’t just take our word for it. Here are the last the three reviews from Trip Advisor…

“Great day out” 5 Star rating

Just the best day out, children loved it, friendly owners who involve the children with the animals and great value for money.

“Brilliant!!” 5 Star rating

Best selection of animals and play in Northants, beautiful surroundings and colour-coded animal food for extra entertainment… And all at a fantastic price. Can’t ask for more!

“Great for the kiddies” 5 Star rating

Great value for money and fun visit. In fact I would suggest the best value for money experienced in Northants.

Holiday care for your hens..

Of course, the best place for your birds whilst you are on holiday is in their own home and environment, keeping stress levels to a minimum. Unfortunately, this is not always possible, so we can offer the second best thing, a ‘home-from-home’ for your birds, when you are away.

In order to protect our birds and yours they will be dusted on arrival, with an anti-mite powder.

Birds are kept in ‘owner groups’ in secure houses and runs which are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between visiting groups of birds. Birds will NOT be let out to free range whilst in our care. Bedding will be changed at least twice a week.

We will provide all food (layers pellets and mixed corn), grit and fresh water. You are welcome to leave a supply of your own feed/treats for use, if you prefer.

Cost just £1 per hen/day
