Farm open days are worth looking out for
Visited with: Child
This farm is mainly the base for a mobile farm unit for school visits and shows, but every so often they throw open their farm gates to children for a fiver each!
Their farm address may be changing soon so do check their website.
My son enjoyed donning his wellies for a tramp around the farmyard, seeing newborn goats and pigs and kittens.
We took a bumpy ride on a tractor, sitting on hay bales, around the farm and surrounding countryside. There's a play area indoors, too.
In the cafe we had hot soup as it was a chilly day, and I would love to come back for their Christmas special open day as I think they'd make it really magical.
It has the feel of a real working farm - tractors parked everywhere, chickens running around, and genuine mud!
The farm supports a charity too, so the money from the open day goes to 'Animal Touch'.
This is in a very remote spot, and not as commercial as some of the larger activity farms which makes is a very good educational experience rather than ball pits and soft play.
