Highfields Happy Hens

Highfields Happy Hens


All the fun of the farm at your finger tips!

Highfields Happy Hens is an open farm set within the beautiful South Derbyshire countryside.

Come and take a leisurely walk around the farm and take in the peace and tranquility of the countryside - after your walk - why not have a cuppa (or more!) in our tea room!

On your way round have some fun on our chain walk, hop scotch and trampoline and if you've still got some energy left at the end – try out our play area (age restrictions apply) or our bouncy castle (available March to October weather permitting) or try out Henrietta's Tractor School!

There are lots of rest places and picnic benches on the way round so why not try our 'Tea Room Alfresco Menu' or bring a picnic and make the most of your visit.

We are once again at the beginning of a new school year, new students desperate for a place to be somewhere they 'fit'. Coffee time at 11.00am each morning is a joy - the table surrounded by young faces learning to laugh and we end with a prayer time which is a new experience for them.

The farm is struggling - small farms are not viable and with our added overheads and rules and regulations, we simply need a miracle - someone to take over and take it forward. Beryl and I, after 35 years need to hand it on!
