A Little Foreword

About Us

Welcome to the family-run Lillingstone Pick Your Own farm. Nestled in stunning countryside between Milton Keynes, Buckingham, and Northampton, you’ll find us in Lillingstone Dayrell, Buckinghamshire.

In 2018 my wife, Faye, and I decided to open the farm gates to the public for seasonal pick-your-own adventures and events. I’m a first-generation farmer growing a variety of combinable crops for cereals and animal feed, along with rearing cattle and sheep. Faye is a primary school teacher in Milton Keynes, a country girl and a wonderful mother.

Our events are inspired by both of our passions: farming and education. As parents ourselves, we realise that time spent outside in the fresh air and enjoying the simple things in life, can bring great enjoyment to all. We love seeing others enjoy making memories on the farm which will last a lifetime!

Many thanks, and we hope to see you soon.
Farmer Tom

What's On?

Exploring the Farm

Experience an unforgettable day as Christmas (and Mother Christmas!) comes to Lillingstone Pick Your Own!

We invite you to explore our Christmas Tree forest and Pick Your Own Christmas Tree from an incredible selection of premium Nordman Fir trees.

Want to embrace the festivities even more? No problem! Our farm is fully in the spirit, with tractor (sleigh!) rides, Christmas gift shop, a refreshment cart serving Christmas-themed beverages, Mother Chritsmas’ grotto and plenty more, there’s something for all the family.

Sound like a perfect day out? We’d love to welcome you to the farm. We’re nestled between Milton Keynes and Northampton.

Our farm is open to everyone this Christmas time, so no need to book. However, if you’d like to visit Mother Christmas, we do ask you book tickets in advance.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

As Seen On...

We were delighted to welcome the Cbeebies film crew along with Kyra, Khloe and their family. They had great fun picking their pumpkins, enjoying a pony pamper and pony ride and navigating their way through our Maize Maze! Watch them enjoy their family day out with us here!

Welcoming the Channel 5 film crew alongside presenter JB Gill, Farmer Tom & Mike get stuck in to helping our newborn lambs settle into their home and talk about the spirit of spring’s renewal and the joy of working with livestock.

Sound like fun?

Book Your Visit

To allow us to manage the Farm’s capacity and stagger arrivals, we ask that all guests pre-book their visit with us.

Photography Notice

The farm makes for a stunning setting for photoshoots; therefore we ask professional photographers who visit us during opening hours to buy a “professional photography ticket” (this can be purchased when booking their tickets online. If they are photographing clients, admission must also be purchased for these). Alternatively, photographers can hire the patch out for exclusive use between opening hours, this can be arranged via email to organise a suitable day and time.
