Mini Meadows Farm is our lovely children’s farm park set in 12 acres of rolling countryside on the Northamptonshire and Leicestershire border.
Come and meet our cute, not quite so cute, large and small farm animals. Learn what they eat using our colour-coded feed buckets, stroke the guinea pigs and rabbits, and if you’re lucky you may even see a chick hatching!
Go exploring on our reservoir walk, build sandcastles in our huge indoor sandpit, and have fun on our fantastic indoor and outdoor wooden play areas.
Our cafe’s coffee, homemade cakes and light lunches are delicious, and we also have picnic areas and lots of space to run off some energy. It’s a great value day out for adults and children alike, whatever the weather.
Take a look at our events page to see what’s coming up. We look forward to seeing you soon!

TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE! CLICK HERE TO BUY
Join us at Mini Meadows Farm this festive season and experience Christmas like never before. You’ll be greeted by our elves and transported into our magical world of Christmas wishes and wonder. All you need is to believe!
Let our elves lead you through the candy cane maze as you start your enchanted journey. Reaching the elf forest, all is not as it seems. Put on your special glasses made by our elves to see the magic before your eyes. Be amazed and amused in the elf village and look into their homes to see what they’re up to. But be prepared, they are very keen on elf and safety. Stop by at the sweet shop and don’t forget to also top up your adults with a festive drink.
Once you’ve refuelled, enter our distribution office to get the important work done. Write your letter to Santa and our elves will stamp and approve it and get it to him at super elf speed. You’ll even get to see how Santa plans to deliver those presents on the big day. (But shhhhh, it’s a secret!) Let the smell of gingerbread lead you into Mrs Claus’ kitchen, where she is getting very busy and needs some help decorating her gingerbread. Can you help her? Then settle down for story time as she reads you a festive tale.
PLUS! With our Full Christmas Experience on Friday-Sunday throughout December, you also get to meet Santa in his workshop. You’ll be able to chat to him and have a photo opportunity, and of course he’ll let you choose an early present to take home with you. And remember, all you need is to believe!

3. The BIG Christmas shop...wait and see
Our tractor racing circuit is in full swing for the next month, until the 20th September when the big build will start for our huge indoor play area.
