Any animal lover will enjoy a visit the Hillstown Farm.

We’re planning to hold a Meet-the-Animals session for visiting children which will include meeting our llamas and chickens. We will also have a variety of other activities such as trailer rides, barrel train rides, fun games and competitions for the children. Then we’ll have a little something for the grown-ups in the form of our ‘big farmer eating contest’. Please like us on Facebook at Hillstown Farm Shop for regular updates on what we’re planning – we will be open all day on Saturday 14th June and open for schools all week.

It sounds brilliant! Hillstown Farm is on the main road from Randalstown to Ahoghill near Whitesides Corner. Click here to visit Hillstown Farm Shop’s website.
