Old Holly Farm is a working dairy farm, located just north of Garstang on the main A6. The farm also has a small visitor attraction on site, with an indoor soft Playbarn with café area, traditional stone courtyard Café, Farm Shop and an open farm. Coolcow Ice cream is made on site using the Old Holly farms cows own milk. Visitors are able to watch the cows being milked at 4.30pm daily from the dairy viewing gallery. The farm is open 9am - 5pm, all year round (closing Christmas Day, Boxing Day, 27th December and New Years Day only). Entry to the open farm and car parking is free (exc. December), there is an admission charge of £4 per child to the indoor soft play. Please note there is a small entrance fee to the farm during December when the Reindeers come to stay. Picnics are not allowed on site. Please don't forget that Old Holly Farm is a working farm so visitors are reminded to use the hand wash facilities to keep safe. If visitors have any concerns please speak to the team at Old Holly Farm directly. The farm also offers children's parties and school visits. Please visit the farms website for details on any special events, half term activities and for further information. .

We visited here twice and the kids loved it. The soft play is great and the food is very good so I'd recommend going for lunch.

Staff were very knowledgeable and pleasant. Animals seemed very well cared for and clean. A very good schedule for the days events and the indoor soft play was a perfect finish for the children whilst staff had quick refreshment

Been a few times to Old Holly Farm as it's a good afternoon out for the family. There's no charge for walking around and seeing the animals. We went for coffee in the cafe and was spot on yet again keep up the good work.
