Easton Farm Park, Easton
Easton Farm Park is situated in the pretty village of Easton. We caught up with the owner, Fi Siddall to find out more about her business.
Can you tell us a little bit about your the farm park?
Easton Farm Park is a family run visitor attraction which has been entertaining and educating children and families about life in the countryside since 1974. The farm is set amongst a selection of stunning Victorian buildings in the heart of the Deben river valley, and children can participate in hands on activities such as pony rides, egg collecting, hugging bunnies and lots more. There is a café serving delicious home cooked food as well as an exciting adventure playground and indoor soft play area.
What makes it unique?
As a small visitor attraction with an amazing team of enthusiastic staff, we are able to offer a warm and friendly experience across the farm. We have a schedule of daily activities all included in the entry fee, including pony rides, train rides, barrel bug, egg collecting, meet the animals, hug a bunny and more. For those for whom a day on the farm is just not enough, we have a range of accommodation on site, including holiday cottages, glamping pods and a large campsite with modern family friendly facilities.
What’s not to be missed when visiting the farm?
There are so many things! Meet the Animals, which takes place every day, is a sight to behold. Get up close and personal with a Shetland pony, pygmy goat, Hilda the Kune Kune pig and even Tinkerbelle, one of our wonderful sheep who we have hand-reared. A stroll around our Green Trail down to the river Deben is an immersion in all that is lovely about the Suffolk countryside. We are proud that we have been breeding the rare and beautiful Suffolk Punch horse for the last 40 years and are keen to share with our visitors this iconic part of Suffolk’s agricultural history.
Can you give us a random fact about the farm park?
There are a few! Our café was originally built to house turkey poults (baby turkeys), and from there to hosting Farmers’ Markets, music gigs and now has a new life as the Willow Barn Café. Our beautiful Green Trail walks down to the river are the official flood plain for the village of Easton. All livestock is taken off the meadows as we head into winter to allow the river to safely flood the meadows and leave the village safe and dry.
After visiting, where would you recommend to go lunch?
You don’t even need to leave the village to find one of the best eateries in Suffolk. A visit to Easton isn’t complete without a trip to the White Horse Inn nestled in the middle of the village.
What is your favourite thing to do in Suffolk on your day off?
If I’m not walking the dogs around the unspoilt footpaths on the farm, we like to head down to Thorpeness with the children for a trip on the Meare, which usually ends in a soaking, followed by ice creams at the Meare Tearooms and a dip in the sea.
