Lotmead Farm is a National Award winning, family friendly activity farm just outside Swindon and the perfect place for a relaxing summer’s day out.
Known for our fabulous ‘pick your own’ strawberries, fresh fruit and vegetables, you are welcome to come and visit us any time during the week from 9.30am throughout the summer months until October.
Established in the 1950s as a traditional dairy farm, Lotmead opened its gates to pick your own visitors in the mid-1980s and has since grown to include some great family attractions and themed events plus the everyday activities of a real working farm with all sorts of fascinating things to discover and learn.
LOTS TO DO
We’ve acres of space to run around with lots to see and do. There’s a Nature Trail that leads to a small lake, a Small Animal Enclosure especially for younger children, a Play Area with climbing frames, swings and slides and of course the farm itself which includes watching the cows being milked every afternoon at the Dairy Parlour.
Please note: these activities carry a small entrance fee. For details and family discounts visit our ‘Lots to Do‘ page.
You can also enjoy some great Themed Weekend Events before the school summer holidays – check out our ‘Events’ page for details and times.
PICK YOUR OWN
As well as strawberries, you’ll find a great choice of seasonal soft fruits and vegetables ready for picking and normally always cheaper than typical supermarket prices. This year, we have changed the way you pay for your strawberries – please go to our ‘Pick Your Own’ page for further details.
We are also very proud to be to have won the FARMA ‘Pick Your Own Farm of the Year’ in 2016 which is a great honour and endorsement to the quality and choice of our produce.
