Fun At The Farm

Last Sunday I made a decision.....if it was raining I would offer to do a shift at work, and if it wasn't we would take the monkeys to the farm. It's safe to say the latter won! How pleased was I it wasn't raining.
Now, we have been to this particular farm before but not for a while. The last time I went was on big monkeys Preschool outing there back in June 2012. On that day it was scorching hot and a complete contrast to the cold weather we had on Sunday but like last time, the sun was shinning. 
We were lucky to get a deal on the entry price and the day there for the four of us was only £9 instead of £32, so as a treat we decided we would get lunch there and really make a day of it. 
I had heard that since being taken over the farm wasn't as good as before and had less animals but I have to say I thought there were more. Big monkey loved feeding the goats. We saw llama, alpaca, cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, birds of prey, and horses. We watched a cow being milked and then the farm assistant showed the monkeys the pail of milk, which she encouraged them to feel.....the bucket was still warm to touch.
Little monkey especially loved going on the tractor ride and we waved to Nana and Grandad from the trailer, as they live across the river from the farm. The cafe was popular and we had to wait a while for our food but it was yummy, all but pricey. After lunch big monkey had a game of crazy golf and both monkeys played in the soft play barn. Apart from being cold it was a really lovely family day out.....thank heavens it didn't rain!!
