Good Friday ( March 30th ) OPEN FARM DAY


Guided walking tours of our working farm from 11am lasting about 45 minutes.

Last tour 3:30pm, tours will depart throughout the day, no need to book.

We are trying a new format trying to avoid large groups and there will be four tour guides instead of two - bear with us !

Refreshments available from 11am. BBQ from noon till 2:30pm. Egg collecting and other free activities.

There will be a disinfectant foot dip, please wear waterproof footwear.

Mostly the tours are on concrete but not everywhere is suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs, some buildings have limited access.

No dogs please.

Free parking but we would appreciate a donation of £3 per adult and £1 per child to cover expenses.

If you have any questions about the day - just ask.

We look forward to showing you around. Hopefully there will be lambs, piglets and calves about as well as the older farm animals.




Garr House Farm is a family run farm just outside Colchester and we have been keeping stock here for over 35 years. Since August 2000 we have been successfully retailing meat through Wigborough Traditional Meats.

Our farming is sustainable with a low carbon footprint and welfare friendly.

All pigs, lambs and calves are born and raised on this farm. If you would like to have a look round - just ask.
