Baby Chicks at Come To Good Farm
     
 

Some activities are seasonal in nature, like watching eggs hatching in the incubator, holding ducklings and chicks or bottle-feeding lambs, but the ducks and chickens always need to be fed and the eggs collected – something children of all ages enjoy.

At the appropriate time of year we offer bespoke lambing and chicken breaks where we aim to share more than 40 years of experience with anyone who is looking to learn more about these things. Please contact us if you would like further information about these breaks. They can be tailored to your specific needs.
