Millets Farm has been popular with families ever since it first opened as a PYO farm back in the mid ‘70’s and that trend has seen the site grow and grow over the decades. A family owned and run farm with many attractions on site as well as seasonal events such as The Circus coming to Millets, a Children’s Book Festival as well as seasonal craft fairs and even a Chilli Festival! Christmas time sees the Grotto open and the covered REAL Ice Rink! Open all year round, the farm has two places to eat; The Farmhouse Kitchen and The Potting Shed, a huge Garden Centre run by the Frost family, a Falconry Centre with over 90 birds as well as smaller retail outlets all of which open 7 days a week. The farm also boasts conference facilities as well as a seasonal PYO area, a summer “Maize Maze” that the farm has held for over 20 years, a “Beach” area in the summer holidays as well as a playground, animal walkway, Phoebe Woods and much more! A must on site is a visit to The Farm Shop selling home-grown items as well as an in store butchery & bakery! An indoor playbarn has been added to the site and opened in November ’17. The farm is dog friendly and only a few restrictions apply. Ample free parking incl coach parking & disabled spaces. Picnics welcome.
Millets Farm Centre was highly recommended to me via another attraction and when this happens, I know for sure it's got to be worth taking a look. On the day I visited I was taken completely by surprise by what I found and Millets is the epitome of what this book is all about. A family run business with not only families in mind, but there is something for every visitor here and one of the main things that impressed me, was this attraction is not trying to be something it's not, it really does do what it says on the tin. Gardens centers tend to be very adult orientated places, not Millets and that's why we have awarded them with our 'Family Fun' hidden gem award. With ample parking, friendly staff and a great selection of places to eat, Millets have to be on your itinerary when visiting Oxfordshire.
