Farmer Gow’s is a working livestock farm providing public access to farming and the countryside.As a mixed livestock farm – with sheep, cattle, pigs, goats, chickens, ferrets, turkeys and ducks – there’s lots to see and do, and lots of fun to enjoy.
The farm’s speciality ‘Meet the Animals’ are interactive, ‘hands on’ feeding and handling sessions held daily throughout the year. They are an absolute delight. Every month there are new young animals to feed and handle – plus some old favourites. ‘Hands On’ is synonymous with Farmer Gow’s – but friendly, family orientated, supportive staff are also a very important part of the farm’s welcome.
Address: The farm is situated on the B4508 between the villages of Longcot and Fernham, SN7 7PR
