Kent Life Heritage Farm Park is a 28-acre working farm and visitor attraction situated in Maidstone, Kent on the site of the original Sandling Farm. It was originally part of the wider Allington Castle estate, owned by Thomas Wyatt in the mid-16th Century. Today, it is one of the few remaining places in Britain where hops are grown, harvested, dried and packed by hand in its magnificent Oast house, using only traditional techniques, at the annual Hops n Harvest Beer Festival in September.
Open throughout the year, Kent Life tells the Kent farming story and provides a fun family day out discovering more than 200 farmyard animals, indoor and outdoor play areas, and Kentish gardens and orchards. Visitors can step back in time to experience Kent’s farming heritage in the Vintage Village, which is made up of reconstructions of original rural Kent buildings that have been re-built brick by brick.
The attraction also hosts a series of seasonal special events throughout the year, catering for the whole family. Schools can take advantage of a varied schools’ programme of educational activities and interactive learning linked to the national curriculum. Bespoke experiential event packages, catering for weddings, social functions and children’s birthday parties, are also available.
