Thrift Farm is on its winter break

Much-loved local attraction Thrift Farm is now on its usual winter break.   The farm park will re-open for Easter 2020 under new management and with a new name – Thrift Activity Farm.

Homemade cake lovers will be pleased to know that the farm cafe will remain open to visitors throughout the seasonal closure of the farm park. 

The winter closure provides an opportunity for staff and service users to carry out routine maintenance and get ready for the lambing season.

Prior to the Easter re-opening, the farm will change hands from Buckinghamshire County Council to the new providers - Kids Play Ltd and Mead Open Farm.

The official handover is scheduled to take place in January 2020 - with current Thrift Farm service users and staff transferring over to the new service.

The farm park and animal enclosures will be closed to visitors from Monday 2 December 2019 until Easter 2020. For more information about Thrift Farm including cafe opening times go to
