Toddle onto the farm for sunny adventures in September

Posted on September 29th, 2018

Wow what a week it turned out to be. After 3 storms in one week last week we had back to back sunshine for this week. Our lucky guests were treated to the best of September sunshine. Almost frosty mornings gave way to t-shirts and looking for sun cream by lunchtime. For those beginning to toddle around we have acres of safe space to run free, learn and play.

Toddler led adventures start here

Here on the farm we have been busy with preschool children throughout September.  This week they have braved the chilly mornings and been rewarded with something new to experience every day on the farm. As the sun rises over the valley so the animals wake, prick up their ears and come out to the sound of the tractor arriving. From egg collecting to goat feeding our little ones have enjoyed every minute. 

Contemplating Farmer Nick’s “Gently” advice.

It takes a cracked egg or two for the little ones to understand “gently” but it’s all part of farm learning.

Hand feeding the goats

Goats can’t bite unlike ponies, it takes a while for the little ones to grasp this but the thrill of plucking up the courage to hand feed them is magical.

If you have a preschool age child who might enjoy our farm this autumn, do take a look at our website for our special low season prices and deals.  It’s not just me shouting out about the fun here, this is from one of our guests in the week:
