Welcome to Old Holly Farm. We are a family run, working organic dairy farm and you can find us in Garstang, Lancashire. We are open from 9am – 5pm daily, with FREE entry to the open farm and parking. We have a fab indoor soft play, a traditional stone courtyard café serving homemade food, treat yourself to a Coolcow ice cream from our farm shop, or come along and meet our traditional farm animals. We also host children’s parties, educational trips and have special events throughout the year. Please note: as we do not charge entry to our open farm we do not allow picnics on site (please see our FAQ page for more info).
