It's been a while since we last visited Pennywell, although the three older children have been on school trips for the Nativity they run at Christmas.
We arrived before the Farm opened and enjoyed a range of breakfast cereals, pain au chocolats, croissants and fresh bread with jam. But the icing on the cake was the opportunity to meet the Pennywell mascot Pippa. After breakfast there was time for a quick photo with Pippa before the Farm opened to the general public and we were able to enjoy all the activities on offer.
|Elliot did enjoy the breakfast, despite his miserable face in this photo.|
We took part in:
- egg collecting from the hens
Counting the eggs we'd all collected.
- worm charming
- pond dipping
- a hedgehog talk, where the children were able to stroke one of the hedgehogs
- a show by children's entertainer and magician Mr Phil. Both Elliot and Beatrix were invited to take part in the show, which they thoroughly enjoyed.
- goat milking
- pig racing
