A picnic at the farm

Today is another beautiful day down south. We decided to take full advantage of the nice weather and have a little picnic at Staunton Farm. Hubby kindly dropped us off on his way into work.

We sat in the lunch area eating our lunches and enjoying the antics of the chickens pecking for crumbs around our feet. Every so often you can hear a bell ring, the bell announces a new lamb is being born and you can go and watch in the barn. 
We decided not to watch any deliveries but did visit the newly born lambs shortly after. 
(I was careful to make sure I didn't touch anything and the girls had a good hand washing afterwards too)

It's not just lambs being born on the farm. This lovely litter of piglets were recently born to. Tiny pink piglets have to be the most amusing creatures to watch. I think we could have stayed all day watching them play and frolic.

 We stayed at the farm for almost three hours in the end, only deciding to walk home once Baby D's legs needed a rest in her buggy.  
Our only purchase was an ice cold bottle of water to share from the shop on the walk back. We were all hot and thirsty so I couldn't resist.

  1. sounds like a good time was had by all.

  2. Sounds like you had a great day! I agree little piglets are funny, my eldest son had a birthday at a farm park when he was much younger. A little piglet was brought out to the children when they were sat in a circle, huge fun was had by all x

  3. Its great to get out and about. Its a good experience for children to know about animals.
