We took a picnic and as the weather was perfect, we squirted on the sun cream and set off a day of animals, music and farm fun.
Having never been there before I wasn't sure what to expect but the minute we walked through the gate the vibe was fantastic. It was quite crowded, which is usually not my ideal setting, but everyone there was really nice and it gave the whole event a relaxed and comfortable feel.
There was live music in the courtyard as we walked in and there were gardens and farm area all around with all sorts of plants, fruit and veg growing.
Our friends from Avon Owls were there so the kids all held an owl of their choice and absolutely loved it, the birds are gorgeous and a real highlight in the day - I think its my turn to hold one next time!
There were a couple of donkeys and goats from Horse World so we stopped by to have a look at those after walking around the farm area and looking at all the different plants that were growing. It was a lovely, calming experience.
Another favourite for the Little People was a lady who helped them make small biodegradable pots with salad garden seeds inside. Its such a fab idea that we will definitely do again.
You take a sheet of newspaper, fold it length ways at about 3" wide so you have a long strip of paper then using a special tool she made it into a pot which we filled with soil then a couple of seeds.
The pot is planted straight into your garden planters and the paper rots away over time, such a great idea!
The other side of the farm had a big stage with live bands on and several stalls and beer tents so we finished up our trip there listening to music and having a cheeky pint while the kids danced in front of the stage.
