25th to 26th Nov
Get in the Christmas spirit, and shop early for your friends and family at our Christmas Gift Market in the Benson Barn.
Find locally crafted items, fun and creative gifts, toys, sweets and other edible goodies in our sparkly, festively decorated barn at the Rare Breeds Centre.
Bundle up in your woollies and shop for your little ones while they're off exploring the farm with another family member, or just enjoy some festive browsing in the barn. Don't miss our pumpkin spice and gingerbread lattes and sweet treats in the Granary Restaurant! You can also win some lovely prizes in our raffle and tombola organised to benefit our charity, Canterbury Oast Trust, which supports adults with learning disability. There will also be a Name the Bear Contest to raise funds for the people we support in our accommodation services at the Rare Breeds Centre.
The Benson Barn is near the car park, and is not part of the farm experience, so there's no entry fee and no parking fee either! If you'd like to explore the farm, regular admission pricing applies.
Visit the Granary Restaurant for mulled wine and Christmas treats. Stallholders will be offering:
