Here on the farm we encourage children to get into nature, to help us on the farm and I mean really help. I love to watch the little ones grow in confidence over the week, where once they were scared by the pushy goats or nervous of feeding the donkey, more often than not by the last day they are mucking in with everything. The only downside in all of this is the more involved and confident they become the grubbier they get. We never like to let a little muck get in the way of a good farm holiday and have an ample supply of overalls for borrow in our reception shop. This way, Mums and Dads can relax in the sure knowledge that washing isn’t going to be the highlight of the holiday for them!
When Adventure Togs contacted me to review a set of their overalls, I was delighted. Adventure Togs was started by Catherine almost ten years ago through the need to find quality outdoor clothing for her own children. The company now supplies to schools, nurseries and playgroups throughout the UK as well as through their online shop at www.adventuretogs.co.uk.
Testing on the Farm
Our overalls really do get some serious use and I was more than happy to put an Adventure Togs set through its paces on the farm. I received the Navy and Royal all in one rain suit for age 3 and it barely found the peg in reception before it was selected for the morning feed run. It fitted our tall nearly 3 year old little farm helper a treat. With Velcro tabs at the ankles and wrists and a pull in section at the waste you can afford to go a little large and really get your money’s worth as I reckon it would cover two years of use this way. Being made of a quality waterproof fabric I’m sure your child will outgrow it before wearing it out, good news if there are siblings to hand it down to and perfect for us as it will see plenty of use here at Coombe Mill! These rain suits retail for £27.99 but if you enter the discount code SUMMER25 you will receive a 20% discount for orders over £25 on any orders on the websitebefore 31.8.13. I rather like the look of these lunchboxes for the new school term too.
No farm visit to Coombe Mill would be complete without a splash in a puddle and the ford. Handy when you can stay dry and clean too!
