Country Kids is the original outdoor family fun linky designed to:
“Encourage family fun outdoors, in an age where technology and screens are such a draw to a sedentary indoor life”
Welcome back if you are a regular to Country Kids and if you are new please join in. You will find plenty of inspiration for enjoying outdoor space and please do share your own adventures. We support the National Trust #50 things along with all other ideas for family fun outside.
The grass is growing and spring is here
Spring has felt a long time coming, especially on the farm. We had run out of hay for the animals and there was none to buy, all the farmers were facing the same problem with the longer than expected cold spell. Finally things have changed, the temperature is up and the grass is growing, the animals are happy and so our our holiday makers. It was even proper beach weather by the end of the week. I hope you were able to take advantage? Please come and join me with your adventures on the link up below.

I'm shocked to the core by the sad news from Louise at Little Hearts Big Lovewho has lost her eldest daughter Jessica on Sautrday Morning. Louise has supported Country Kids since it started with wonderful family adventures and I'm sure you'll join me in sending much love to the family at this time. If you are wanting to offer support to the family, we are arranging a holiday for Louise, Michael, Sophie and Peanut here at the farm when they're ready for it, just email me if you'd like to contribute (email@example.com). There is also a Just Giving page for the Little Hearts Matter charity who have supported the George family throughout Jessica's heart journey. Here is the link if you'd like to donate there.
“Tales from the farmers wife” shares life on our lovely holiday farm with Farmer Emma and our children. Step into our beautiful 30 acres and experience nature close up with farming and educational crafts in stunning North Cornwall. Family, fun and adventure start here.
