Welcome to Glebe Farm, a family friendly visitor attraction set in the picturesque village of Astbury, south Cheshire.
There’s something for the whole family at Glebe Farm; coffee shop, farm shop, butcher’s, fishmonger’s and an interesting selection of independently owned shops and businesses, nestled in the farm’s barns and outbuildings.
There’s a children’s play area and tractor rides at weekends and during the summer.
And not forgetting the star attraction – the animals; Alpaca, Donkeys, Ponies, Goats and more, which are kept in the paddocks, fields and pens around the farm.
All with free entry and free parking.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Please read our latest Covid-19 visitor information below to help you plan and enjoy your visit safely.
Covid – 19 update
Updated 5th November 2020
So here we are in lockdown 2.
It’s taken us a little while to put together our Covid-19 update as we are in an unusual situation here at Glebe Farm with our combo of Animal Attraction / Play Area / Shops / Cafe and more…..
Although we didn’t want to find ourselves in this situation again, having been through lockdown once, we, and all our shops and businesses here at Glebe Farm, are so much better prepared this time. It is an awful situation for some of our service businesses which must close, however most of our shops have been able to find ways for you to be able to continue to shop local!
Visitors should only come to the farm for essential shopping or by prior arrangement for Click and Collect or pre-agreed appointments.
What that means in practice is that all essential shops remain OPEN –
Glebe Farm Shop
Glebe Farm Butchers
Select Fresh Fish
You may visit these shops as usual, and they each have their own order and delivery services in place. They have all put out Facebook posts explaining how you can order from them so please contact them directly for more information – they are the experts 😊
Queuing outdoors in the winter is no fun so we now have a covered area between the farm shop and the fishmonger’s to make waiting a bit more comfortable for those busy times.
All other shops are closed for drop in shopping, however many are operating an online order service or can be contacted by their social media for delivery or Click and Collect.
Please see the EXPLORE page of our website for contact details for all our businesses. We will be sharing posts from our shops on our Facebook feed and Stories, so keep an eye out!
VISITING GLEBE FARM
Unlike most visitor attractions who have been forced to close, we cannot close our gates to visitors, however, please be aware that this is a lockdown and we are all being advised not to socialise in groups.
Our play area is currently out of bounds as the drainage is being worked on. We will review whether we can, or should, re-open it once the work is completed.
The animal barn is closed to visitors and we have withdrawn the sale of animal feed during lockdown.
Our café is closed during lockdown, for indoor dining and takeaway.
We’re sorry it’s such a long post, there’s a lot that goes on at the farm! We will update you during lockdown and also share animal stories with you, so you don’t miss out on your “animal fix”. Let us know which animals you’d like us to show you.
Stay safe everyone!
