Bucklebury Farm 2002
Bucklebury Farm & Deer Safari Park is a 70-acre farm in the picturesque Pang Valley. Originally the farm was purely a working farm, growing corn and housing a small flock of sheep. In 1986 six acres of strawberry fields were planted and the farm became a popular pick-your-own. In 1992 the decision was taken to diversify into the tourist industry, and the past 28 years has seen the creation of a magical farm park experience for all to enjoy. The farmyard is home to a small herd of rare breed Berkshire Pigs, pygmy and Anglo-Nubian goats, Alpacas, Donkeys, Shetland Ponies, South Devon Heifers, Belgian Blue Heifers, Lambs and Chickens! The deer park is home to Bucklebury Farm & Deer Safari Park’s extensive deer herd with four different breeds including Red deer, Sika, Fallow and Axis. Tractor rides and deer safaris offer visitors unique access to this wonderful herd. The farm’s woodland offers the chance to get away from it all with nature trails and a boardwalk over the stream and plants, flowers and wildlife to see all year round. Being a working farm, everyday is an adventure at Bucklebury Farm & Deer Safari Park with new arrivals on the farm yard throughout the year, baby lambs to bottle feed in spring, goat kids, rabbits and guinea pigs to cuddle and piglets to watch. But their visitors are also guaranteed fun in their adventure playground, on the jumping pillow, go-karts, obstacle course, den-building area and great indoor play area with its scary drop slides and soft play for little ones.

Please note that farms have certain risk factors. Animals carry forms of bacteria that can cause harm and ill health to individuals, especially the young and old as well as expected mothers. Extra care must be taken by all visitors to wash their hands, with hot water and soap, after they are in close contact or near animals; and especially before eating, drinking or smoking. It is essential that all parents and guardians of young children encourage and enforce hand washing, whilst preventing thumb sucking and nail biting whilst on site at the farm.
If Bucklebury Farm wasn’t popular enough with happy and excited children, they also have many wonderful play areas for your little adventurers to discover!
Lots of memories are made at Bucklebury Farm but for many there indoor drop slide and soft play area is forever a favourite. Enjoy a cup of coffee whilst your child amuses themselves for hours up and down the colourful slides.
