I'm a Mum of two boys living in Oxfordshire, enjoying lots of fun activities and writing about them when I get a chance.

Oxfordshire's Best Farm Parks
My kids are at the age where they absolutely love to visit a farm park. It's a great way to meet lots of different animals and most usually have lots of other activities to keep the kids happy too.
Spring is my favourite time for a family trip to a farm park with lots of great lambing events going on too. I've been to most of the fun farm parks around Oxfordshire, so thought I'd share my top recommendations.
Millets Farm Free to visit, Millets Farm have ducks to feed, inquisitive goats and some more unusual animals too including Llamas. They also have a playpark and organise lots of activities during the school holidays.
This is very much an outside day trip as they don't have a huge amount of indoor attractions. Feeding the animals is always fun and the giant hay bale and pedal tractors add a little extra fun at Farmer Gows.
Cotswold Wildlife Park If you're looking for the ultimate meet the animals experience, then you have to try the Cotswold Wildlife Park. They have lots of farm animals that you can get up and close to but you'll be bowled over by the amazing range of exotic animals from rhinos to zebras.
Roves Farm Just outside the Oxfordshire border is one of my favourites, Roves Farm. It's great when the weather is mixed as they have loads of fun indoor activities from soft play to ride on tractors. Outside, you can meet the animals, enjoy the play park and have fun on a tractor ride.
Green Dragon Eco Farm Last but not least, the lovely Green Dragon Eco Farm is within easy reach if you live to the north of Oxfordshire. They have a wildlife zone with endangered animals, a goat walkway, animal handling sessions and lambing season covers the school Easter holidays.
