There’s so much to do at Mead Open Farm, whatever the weather! As well as all the animals, the Farm has two huge jumping pillows, an adventure playground, Go-Karts and Crazy Golf, as well as a fantastic sandpit called Digger Village.
It’s a fun-packed day out for kids offering loads of different environments for children to play, swing, climb, balance, slide and ride! Come and see Bedfordshire’s favourite children’s farm for yourselves!
Giant’s Rock Climbing Wall, Sky Trail and Sky Tykes High Ropes and Tractor and Trailer Rides will be open from April-October.
Enter a land of treetop towers, wibbly wobbly bridges and long slippery tube slides at Mead Open Farm’s fantastic Topsy Turvy Towers Outdoor Adventure Play area! Ideal for hide and seek or just climbing, sliding and clambering, it provides the perfect place for children to have fun and be active! With a separate area just for under 5’s, there’s entertainment for all ages, and plenty of picnic tables for the grown-ups to keep a watchful eye out while enjoying a hot drink and snack from The Grain Store Kitchen or a picnic.
Just like all the other activities at Mead Open Farm, John Deere Go-Karts is included in your entry fee at Mead Open Farm: making days out with us amazing value. Always popular, our outdoor John Deere Go-Karts are great fun! Put yourself in the driving seat and race your family, friends and new friends too! (Height restriction applies.)

Boiiiing! Be prepared to get bouncy on our two gigantic jumping pillows. Mead Open Farm have two brightly coloured, fun-packed, inflatable pillows where children of all ages can bounce to their hearts content. With one pillow just for under fives and one for older children everyone can join in the fun at their own pace! Children will love seeing how high they can bounce. It’s great exercise and much more entertaining than a trampoline. Please note socks are required to play on the pillows and they cannot be used when wet.
If you thought having a car full of sand and buckets and spades was just for beach holidays, think again. Mead Open Farm’s sand and water play area – called Shaggy’s Cove – offers a taste of desert island beach not far from land-locked Leighton Buzzard. Children love to dig and build in sand, and when you add water to the mix, it’s the perfect recipe for hours of entertainment! Pirate-themed Shaggy’s Cove features a water pump, bamboo channels for water to pour down, buckets on a pulley and lots and lots of sand. We provide buckets and spades – you provide the creativity!
Start your engines…Shaggy’s On Road Adventure is open during weekends and school holidays! Zoom around in Mini Outlanders on our specially built track and manoeuvre round bends. It’s just £3.50 extra for 3 laps of the course (payable on the day) and is so much fun!

With live commentary provided by the farmer who is driving the tractor, sit back, hold on tight and see how many different animals you can spot in the fields.
