Did you know that there's a hidden gem of a destination for families in the CH64 area?

Welcome to Willaston Community Farm in Heath Lane, just off Hooton Road.  It's a little-trumpeted delight, fun, welcoming and featuring lots of amusing signs and innovative ideas. You'll find a menagerie of goats, pigs, geese, ducks, rescued battery hens, ponies, peacocks, cats and even emus! 

Willaston Community Farm - Fun, Free and For the CommunityA friendly welcome with fun signs awaits.

There's no entry charge and, once there, you can get fresh eggs in exchange for a donation, with all proceeds going back into the care of the animals at the farm.

And that's not all....

Children will love the opportunity to see the animals and birds.  Have a wander round, or book an interactive session by calling 0151 327 8911 or messaging the farm via their Facebook page.

Willaston Community Farm - Fun, Free and For the CommunityPeppa and Chelsea will be happy to see you, along with the new batch of ducklings.

The petting farm side of this community enterprise will be expanding soon to include pony days, camps and parties.  These will be a variety of opportunities to interact with the ponies, from simply meeting them, all the way through to an overnight stay, including grooming, mucking out and feeding. A new stables area has been developed to facilitate these activities, near the farm's Pond, with its imaginatively named 'Canary Wharf' viewing platform.

And there's more....

Marsh Nurseries moved from Parkgate to Willaston Community Farm recently and all their beautiful indoor and outdoor plants are now available to purchase, along with compost and pots.  In addition, the team offer a full-service plants and flowers service to local businesses. So if you'd like your pots, hanging baskets, seasonal displays and even Christmas trees all taken care of, give Paul Prosser a call on 0151 336 4078.

Willaston Community Farm - Fun, Free and For the CommunitySigns of the times - it's all happening at Willaston Community Farm

Paul Jackson, who bought the land some 15 years ago, has a strong sense of community, seeing the project as good for the area, residents and staff. To that end, the Farm is in the process of becoming a Community Interest Company. Paul and the team also all support other local businesses as much as possible.  Most importantly, they believe in 'keeping it real' for children - giving our young people the opportunity to step away from smartphones and tablets and enjoy being out in the fresh air.

Willaston Community Farm - Fun, Free and For the CommunityGoing potty...Mayor of Neston, Cllr Pat Kynaston, visited recently.

AboutMyArea and Neston Life will be keeping you updated as the range activities available at the farm continue to develop.  In the meantime, why not go and have a look around at what's already there. It's fun, it's free and it's for the community.

Willaston Community Farm endeavours to keep most activities free of charge, but some may be run in exchange for a donation, which will go towards the continuing rescue work and running costs of the farm. For more details... 

Contact the team, including Paul Jackson, Rachael Johnson and Peter Duff on 0151 327 8911 and Paul Prosser on 0151 336 4068.

Open 7 days a week, 10am to 6pm (Summer hours)
