“My children love visiting Glebe Farm, Astbury. It’s free admission and there’s loads to do to fill a morning: farm animals to pet, ride on cars and tractors to play on in the barn, an outside play area plus tractor rides around the farm (for £1 per person).
The farm shop cafe sells coffees, sandwiches and cakes. They do use nuts in some of their cakes. Whenever I have asked if they can cater for my son, they always stress they “cannot guarantee a nut free meal as there are nuts in the kitchen”. We’ve eaten there a couple of times and I have ordered him the children’s board minus the cake (so just sandwiches, fruit, Pombear crisps and Robinsons fruit shoot), which the cafe staff agreed to make up for him on a clean board, with clean utensils etc.
Slightly disappointing this summer, in that there were no nut free ice creams available. They sell ice cream by the scoop and also have a freezer full of lollies. Last year you could always count on finding a Twister from Walls, however this year there were only lollies labelled “may contain nuts”. Saying that, the farm shop did have Kinnerton chocolate lollies, so my son was able to have a safe treat!”
