Our daily tractor rides to feed the animals are the highlight of a holiday at Coombe Mill for the children. It makes my day when our own children come along and help out too. I love to see them demonstrating to the younger children how to feed and handle the animals. This builds the confidence for our younger visitors and as the week goes by everyone is keen to have a go from stroking to feeding and even driving the tractor!
The morning feed fun is a great way for the children on holiday to make friends and learn from each other
After an hour and a half on the farm everyone is keen to get back for a rest and a clean up and plan the rest of the day.
What have you been up to out and about recently with the kids? Whether the garden, the park or an outing in the country, please take a camera and join me here to support fresh air and healthy outdoor fun for children.
