It is always a pleasure to visit the farm and just before Baylham House Farm closes at the end of the season it’s going to be even more fun. For the Halloween themed autumn half term week they are open every day and every child will be able to have a go at the activities for no extra charge. See the website for full details of spooky pursuits, including pumpkin carving and the apple bobbing challenge.
It may seem that the farm is quiet at this time of year but it is now that they prepare for the lambing season next year. There are already some groups of ewes running with rams for lambs in February, while others are still waiting to meet ‘the ram of their dreams’ to lamb over Easter.
With pigs and sheep, goats and cows, chickens and ducks – the farm is a great place to entertain, educate and enthral.
Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm is six miles north west of Ipswich, off the B1113 between Great Blakenham and Needham Market. The farm is open from 10am to 5pm, Tuesday to Sunday, until the October half term when it will be open all week. With entry prices at £7 for adults, £6 for concessions, £3 for children (aged 4-16) and under four’s free, it would be difficult to find a more entertaining and better value attraction in Suffolk.
