A village south of Reading, on the way to Wokingham.  Lockey Farm is convienently situated right by The Bull Public House, on the road towards Sindlesham. We are a very traditional farm letting the animals grow naturally without fertilisers or chemicals. Supplying our own meats, we use a family run abattoir just 12 miles away in Farnborough. So from field to fork the meat has very low food miles. Lockey Farm is a popular site with free entry. We don't charge for visiting our farm. We have kids outdoor play equipment including toy tractors swings and a big climbing frame.  We arrange lots of activites to co-inside with the school holidays and the working farm year.  We also have a very well stocked Farm shop with Butchers and deli counters as well as other local products including Beers ciders and wine.
