Acorn Farm is an award-winning, family-friendly attraction in Kirkby, Merseyside. We are open 7 days a week 10am-4pm and there is always loads to see and do! Whatever the weather, Acorn Farm offers a great value, fun day out for everyone – our admission prices are £3.50 for adults and £2.50 for children! We have a wide range of animals here at the farm, many of which you can feed and stroke. Our animals include our ram, sheep, cows, goats, pigs, horses and chickens, small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs and even meerkats!

Reasonable priced lovely setting woodland walk play areas and although car parks were full the farm wasn't packed my three grandsons and my daughter had a lovely few hours plenty of places to have our picnic and lots of lovely animals to feed and stroke. I felt sorry for the sheep Roddy who likes to headbutt all on his own in the field he was cute.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a lovely review :) Unfortunately Roddy can not be in a field with the ewes as they have just lambed and if he was in a field with another ram they would fight. He is a happy chap having lots of feed from our lovely visitors. We hope to see you again soon. Rebecca Project Administrator

Fair prices, would be happy to pay more. Not too overcrowded and animals are all happy and well looked after.

I love visiting Acorn Farm with my Grandchildren. Such a lovely place, staff are friendly and helpful. The cafe food is great quality both children's and adult menus, the sandwiches are well filled and chicken goujons are delicious. Cheap entry prices means its accessible for any budget. Will be visiting again very soon.

Very much enjoyed feeding and petting all the animals. Never seen Babydoll sheep before and loved how cute and friendly they were and how they wag their tail when you scratch under their chins! Very cheap and good selection in the cafe

We had a great family day out on Saturday at the farm. All staff so friendly and welcoming. In particular the lovely girls at the horse stables. They were just great and so attentive with the children. Amazing day out.

It was a lovely afternoon with my two daughters and then I needed to sit down so we went to the cafe but all I could over hear was a dispute with a little older lady with glasses and a chef I think, about low kitchen staff. But management didn’t sort this out so food took long to be prepared and some customers were complaining to the chef, some were shouting at her but they kept it professional and tried their best.
I used to be a manager in a cafe and I know how stressful it can be.
Even though the long wait, the food was lovely.
The cafe staff were lovely despite the stress, with a smile on their face.
The kids had a lot of fun feeding the animals. We will probably come here for an afternoon trip again.
The couple of staff at the petting area were really polite and the kids loved the rabbit!
I would recommend this farm for a little family trip.

It’s been a while since we visited and we’ve missed coming to Acorn Farm. Such a great place to visit. Very reasonably priced and great value. For two teens aged 15 & 16 plus me who was in desperate need of some animal therapy, plus two lots of food for the chickens etc, & the sheep etc, plus tickets for the petting area, it cost less than £15.
Acorn Farm has a lovely warm relaxing feel to it. You can walk around at your leisure while still social distancing.
Catherine was so lovely and helpful. We wanted to see the piglets who where in the shed with their mum so Catherine got them to come out. What a treat - 11 cute piglets in various colours.
She also showed us the ducklings whom we got to stroke. We felt like VIP’s!! Catherine was really friendly and patient.
The cafe was lovely too with reasonably priced snacks and drinks. We enjoyed coffee, tea, pop, a sausage roll, ginger cake which was so nice and a rocky road for £8!!
We will most definitely be back. Thank you Acorn farm. 🤗

Such a lovely farm! Very well priced at only £3 entry and £1.50 per bag of food. The piglets and baby goats were absolutely adorable but our favourites had to be the babydoll sheep - super friendly and woolly! So 10/10 for the farm, but unfortunately our experience was slightly spoiled by a rude customer assistant in the shop.

The young girl serving us was absolutely lovely, but when my mum went to pay for our ice cream unfortunately her payment didn’t go through (which anyone who works in retail knows is a common experience and could be due to any number of factors), but another shop assistant (older lady with glasses) took it upon herself to loudly say “DECLINED, PAYMENT NOT TAKEN” multiple times while waving the receipt in our face. As if this wasn’t rude enough, the same shop assistant then started complaining about the paper roll for the card machine running out, as if it was my mums fault she didn’t have more paper for the machine?? My poor mum was really apologetic as she didn’t know what was wrong with her card, but even as my card eventually worked the woman kept going on about my mums declined payment in such a rude way drawing loads of attention to us as more customers were coming in, so my mum was obviously mortified and then upset on the way home.
Working in retail myself I would never react this way to embarrass customers or even speak to anyone this way in general. Technical issues with bank cards happen all the time, so this was just an absurd and appalling way to handle the situation. Overall a lovely farm and the fresh eggs and ice cream are amazing, just wish the customer service matched!
