Family Days Out

The Day The Farm Came To Town

We are very lucky that the town we live in has lots to offer for the kids to do (even though lots of people still moan that there is nothing to do lol).
Flitwick Rufus Centre had arranged for Ark Farm to come and visit for the day. The day started with a big group picnic with lots of activities scattered about the grounds for the older kids, despite the overly friendly wasps the picnic was lovely and everyone enjoyed chatting and watching the kids play. Here is Willow tucking in to her grub!

We then headed over to the next field where Ark Farm had set up lots to see. There was a pen holding pygmy goats, a kune kune pig, geese, chickens, ducks, sheep, a dexter cow and even the friendly farm dog (a beautiful black labrador). There was a set of hay bales for the kids (and some very eager adults) to sit on andhold guinea pigs and look at some quails, and there was also a story/rhyme area with puppets and masks….

… After a fab few hours, it was time for the tired animals (and some equally tired children) to go home. Willow just HAD to wave goodbye to EVERY animal as they were loaded up in to the trailer.

Ooooh, and the best thing we saw all day? This…….

  1. Hi

    Looks like you had a lovely day out. I’ve really enjoyed taking my daughter to farm days this summer, she is still quite young but loves seeing the different animals.

    I hope you don’t mind me sharing but I’ve written a post on saving money on family days out here: http://www.daytripfinder.co.uk/blog/cheaper-family-days-out-guide
