Low Barns: Kids in the Country

In the heart of the Tyne Valley, Low Barns, a mixed livestock farm, sits right on the edge of the river Tyne and, although only a short distance from the market town of Hexham, it sometimes feels like a whole other world! As part of the Countryside Stewardship scheme, we are proud of our environmental conservation features such as species rich hedgerows, wildlife ponds, mixed woodlands filled with wildlife and wildflowers, and a beetle bank perfect for studying minibeasts. On the farm, we will be pleased to introduce you to many of the animals which call here home. From the cattle to the sheep and ponies to the chickens and ducks, there are many different animals to learn about and lots of opportunities to get hands on!
