We were lucky enough to visit Boundary Farm again today. We last visited in February so were very interested to see how big the lambs are now. We had a wonderful afternoon and the children were so well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
We saw the lambs and the ewes in the field as the lambs are old enough to eat grass now. We did see a few lambs that have been hand reared that are still in the barn and we got to stoke one, she was so soft!
We got to stroke the cows and they even licked us! We saw the silage that the cows eat during the winter and we heard how it was produced in the summer when the grass is cut.
We planted pumpkin seeds ready for the autumn and we have brought them back to school to grow! Finally we visited the milking parlour and learnt how the cows are milked and we even got to feel the suction.
We were lucky with the weather which just held off too! Once again Farmer Richard and Rachel were fantastic with the children and provided an exciting and memorable experience.
