what makes...
Greenstead Farm such a special place?

Greenstead Family Barn Cafe

Our cafe / restaurant with its rustic surroundings is a must try! Our dedicated team of chefs use a selected group of local suppliers to create an exciting, high quality menu with seasonal recipes and English classics with a modern twist.

Children’s Soft Play Centre

We are very excited to announce the opening of our brand new soft play centre. Our commitment to growing Greenstead Farm to provide new and exciting areas for children to enjoy the visit.

The Post Office

There is no need to visit the local town centre and worry about parking and walking to the Post Office when we have a full range of Post Office services, including free banking for the majority of high street banks, right here!

Greenstead Animal Feeds

Greenstead Animal Feeds has grown and developed since its opening in February 2008, and we now offer a thoroughly diverse range of products. We stock a variety of feed and accessories for horses and pets.

Tiggy's Barn

Tiggy's Barn is a fantastic opportunity for children to get close to the animals, feed them and learn more about their habitats. You will see all sorts of animals wandering around - can you name them all?

Carousel (kid's clothing & toys)

Carousel Pre-loved Boutique has a fantastic range of both new and pre-loved children's clothes, toys, furniture, maternity wear, baby equipment and textiles!

Country Walks

Using the farm as your base, take in the beautiful Essex countryside on one of our routes - walking as far as Halstead and back if the mood takes you! Be sure to return for a well earned cup of tea and a slice of Kat's homemade cake before you head home.

The Barn Nursery School

The nursery school is situated in a newly converted barn at Greenstead Farm and is run by qualified teachers Victoria Percival & Jess Allen who between them have over 25 years' experience teaching and leading Early Years' units within schools.

Our History

Greenstead Farm is still very much a working farm to this day and is owned by Chris Butler and his wife, Tania. The Butler family have been farming in this area for generations and even have links to Whitehall and the Government!
