We really enjoyed feeding the ponies, donkeys, sheep and the greedy goats.  We were even lucky enough to meet a newly born baby lamb!  We were surprised to find some animals not usually found on farms but thrilled all the same to meet an emu, some wallabies and fallow deer.

We learned about where our everyday foods come from, and had great fun on the bumpy tractor ride, we were sad to have to get back on the coach to go home!
