Little Fant Farm is a quaint little heritage cottage farm, nestled within the picturesque Medway Valley Fruit Orchards and Maidstone countryside.

As a small working farm they grow as much produce within their 16 acres of land as they can, to sell, cook and bake with. Each season sees a new opportunity for picking your own fresh fruits and vegetables including pumpkins, pears and plums – you can even rent your own pear tree!

Meet the animals that call the farm their home, including chickens, ducks, geese, pigs, lambs and the 2 adopted Shetland ponies, Pumpkin and Orlando.

The farm makes for a peaceful afternoon out for the whole family, walk around the farm, see the resident animals and kitchen garden then relax in the Tea Barn paddock with a nice cup of tea and farm made cakes and savoury treats.
