Green Dragon Farm & Eco Centre - A Review

Friday, 6 March 2015

Today we took advantage of the fact that you can currently use some of the facilities at the new Green Dragon Eco Farm in Quainton for free. The Farm opens fully on 21st March but until then you can see a few animals in the Paddocks, play in the Messy Barn and the Cafe is open.

When we arrived, we popped into the Shop and they told us which parts we could visit. We bought a bag of food for 50p and headed out to the Paddocks to see the goats and feed them. Little Miss A was actually more interested in the chickens and seemed to have a 'way' with the turkeys!

We then headed into the Cafe for some refreshments, after washing our hands of course! The whole building is a lovely space and has been very tastefully decorated. Everything in the Cafe seemed pretty reasonably priced including the hot lunch food options.

Then it was time for play. Little Miss A was in her element in the Messy Play Barn. A large space to run around, ride the ride-on tractors, enjoy the soft play and dig in the sand pits. Even though there were 3 of us there (Grandma, her friend and myself) we sometimes had a job to keep up with her!

Little Miss A could have quite happily stayed in here all day I think. The only thing to say is that it's not that warm inside the Barn. As you can see from the photos, we kept our coats on. It won't be so bad as the weather warms up.

It took us about 20 minutes to drive to the Farm so it's really not far. I think we'll definitely be paying another visit soon once it's all fully open. From what we could see, the other areas including the outdoor play area looked really great. If nothing else, we know that Little Miss A will be happy to spend time in the Messy Play Barn! There is going to be a Soft Play Barn as well which means it will be a good option even on a rainy day. The other good thing is that it's open every day of the year except Christmas Day!

From 21st March, the Green Dragon Eco Farm will cost £4.50 per child and £5.50 per adult. Under 2s are free. Annual membership is available. It's worth keeping an eye on the Farm Facebook page for details of upcoming events etc.

  1. I hadn't heard of this new farm opening and it's really interesting that it's open now for free whilst it's being 'road tested' before fully opening just before Easter
    Thanks for the heads up!

    1. Thanks Mummyshire. It will be worth visiting when they're fully open as they'll be lots more animals to see and lots more to do but until then there's enough to do and it's great that it's free. Better be quick though!

  2. Great review. W also seemed to like the chickens when we were there! X

    1. Thankyou! It was lovely to see you & W there. He really does love sand!
