For a great children's birthday party idea or school holidays idea hire a farm to come to your place. The wonderful crew from Kindifarm will bring their lambs, goats,a very hungry calf, a noisy piglet, sheep, ducks, cheeky chickens and oh so soft rabbits to your venue. Children and adults alike will love patting and feeding them for hours.
The greatest joy is when you get to feed a greedy little three week old lamb from a baby bottle. The farmer will hold he or she and you hold the bottle very tightly as they nuzzle away. The calf is the funniest as he bustles the other animals out of the way to get to the bucket of grainy feed. The sheep and goats busily do their own thing whilst the chestnut brown piglet is by far the noisiest. Wanting to be heard, he squeaks loudly when his food is served and he dives into the milky mix of oats with his snout and hooves.
The visit is complete with a sheep shearing demonstration and the children get to keep their own sample of wool. One last pat and a mandatory washing of hands and the farm animals waddle, walk and stroll out the gate. A perfect way to be on the farm without the long drive to get there.
