Yesterday was national open farm Sunday! Did you know that was a thing? I didn’t!
We headed to Uncle Henry’s farm to see what was going on and meet with some friends who are celebrating their two-year-old’s birthday. We all had an amazing time!
We got to stroke some animals, see some farm machinery, go on a tractor tour and so on! We also watched a birds of prey display and buy loads of lovely local produce. There was a dog display too but we had to leave before that started as we had lunch plans with my in laws!
It was such a fun day out and so much thought and effort had been put into it. On entrance E was given some cress seeds to grow, an activity pack, a balloon, LOTS of stickers and loads of information. There was a farm quiz and loads of entertainment around. It was all free!* I am sure we can all agree if it’s a free and fun then it’s worth it with a toddler!!
E loved chatting to the Farmers and everyone we came across was happy act along about being a ‘real life farmer’ (which they of course were) To a 2 year old a farmer is practically a celebrity and they all played their role well!
Next year it’s the 11th June 2017 and we will be going again. We may even do two farms!
Lots of love
(*aside from the buying of local produce)
