09:30 every morning, Farmer Syl rings his bell and shouts “Animals!” That’s your cue to grab your food waste buckets and rendez-vous at the bar before a hop, skip and a jump to the tractor for a ride to our on-site petting farm.
We’ve created a safe and nurturing petting farm that welcomes little ones to learn all about the animals. We like to give the animals as much freedom as possible (they have more roaming space than us) so we may get different visitors every day. But one thing is for sure, our friendly old horse Apache and his donkey entourage will be there waiting for the kids every day for their breakfast.
We have recently created a new farm, one more in keeping with nature and the ethos of Country Kids. It’s a Farm in the Forest. So as well helping Farmer Syl feed the pigs, goats, rabbits and chickens, there are opportunities to learn about the nature around.
Our farm is one of our most treasured areas here at Country Kids. Kids love it, as well as many Mums and Dads. Oh did, we forget to mention, everybody gets a chance to drive the tractor in the morning too. Well, almost everybody, not Mums or Dads!
