Farm Trail


Welcome to Hall Farm’s exciting new farm trail which was opened on Friday 20th June 2014 by the Olympic gymnast and ‘Dancing on Ice’ star, Beth Tweddle, MBE. Our farm trail is a wonderful walk for everyone. There’s Dilly the Digger to clamber on, and be sure to look out for the Hall Farm tyre monster! For those a little less energetic, there are lovely spots to stop and stare, relax, and take in the beautiful Dedham Vale surroundings. Entry to the farm trail is free, but you might wish to buy some animal food from the shop before you set out on your walk. The geese are particularly partial to the bread chunks!

Schools and Groups

We very much welcome schools and groups to our farm trail. It provides a fantastic, healthy education. We would be happy to arrange talks from John Barrie, the Owner and Farmer of Hall Farm and also Sheila the Sheep Shearer. There’s so much to take in on our farm trail – the vintage farm machinery, the wildlife, how we farm in Suffolk, stories about the seasons and fun tales of the quirky farm animals! We can also provide food and drinks for whatever your requirements might be. Please call Hall Farm Café Restaurant for more information about bringing your school or group to our farm trail.
