Brimham Rocks Adventure Farm

Nestled just below the Iconic Brimham Rocks on the southern fringe of the Nidderdale AONB, is Brimham Rocks Adventure Farm.

A real working farm which allows people through the farm gate to learn about all things farming and countryside.
Although the farm has only been open to visitors a short while it’s not a new venture for the farming couple behind it; it’s an extension of their commitment to connecting farming and education.

On site we offer spacious indoor and outdoor play areas, a café serving home cooked food and delicious cakes, outdoor viewing areas to see the animals and an indoor petting barn with a large variety of friendly animals.

We are open Wednesday to Sunday term time in accordance with NYCC dates and 7 days during the school holidays.

We offer term time weekly “Little Farmer” Sessions on Wednesdays and Thursday mornings from 10.30am -12.30pm designed for toddlers, allowing them to meet the animals, do a craft, have story time, snack and more.

We have themed fun educational activities each half term. This can be anything from sowing and growing your own fruit and flowers to wild bird feed making.

It’s always worth checking our Facebook page for up to date information.
