A few week-ends ago, just before the snow we decided to visit Green dragon rare breeds farm and eco centre near Quainton in Buckinghamshire. Tempted by an advertisement on Facebook and prompted by the fact ‘kids go free’ with a paying adult in January (Making it £18 for 4 of us) and wanting to do something in the fresh air. We were really glad we did as we had a great few hours out hour.
The farm is fairly small but well-kept and offers plenty of hands – on experiences, talks and displays. We were very impressed by the staff, quite often you visit family attractions, where the staff are unenthusiastic, grumpy and put in minimum effort. This was far from the case, all the staff here at the farm were happy, chatty and informative, which is a real credit to them especially as it was absolutely freezing, a few hail storms and bitter in the wind. It was obvious that the staff enjoyed there jobs, all were really informative, friendly and answered our question with great knowledge.
All the animals were out in the animal paddocks and barn, looked well looked after and were active, Despite it being freezing. The boys enjoyed grooming a Shetland pony, holding a cockroach, watching a bird of prey show, digging in the sand pit for dinosaur bones, riding a pedal go-kart and playing in the soft play. Apart from the farm animals, there is an indoor messy play barn, wildlife zone, exotic pets corner, peddle Go-karts, outdoor play area, indoor soft play area, picnic shelter, café and shop.
If your Local, in my own personal opinion it is definitely worth a visit to this lovely well run farm for a couple of hours especially those with younger children. Depending on older children’s interest, some may find it to small or not big enough to hold there interest. This is my own bias review/opinion based on our own personal experience of a few hours there. We had a great few hours out, enjoying family time and was so impressed by the staff.
