A day at the Farm

Monday, October 28, 2013

We recently spent a day at Manor Farm country park.
The day did not start well with a thunderstorm before we went, so the photos may be a bit dull as it was very cloudy.
The farm has a theme of a world war 2 farm.

A barn


American jeep

Motorbike and machinery

Shepherds hut

Farmyard ducks


Young farmyard ducks

Sheep in the pens.

Pig and piglets

This is Violet the pig with her piglets which were born as we arrived at the farm

This is Sue with her piglets, no its not my daughter who is known as Sue

She even has her name on the gate and our Sue did get ribbed about it.

There was a turkey wandering around

This chicken is called a Silkie

A farmyard rooster

Farmyard ducks and machinery

The rooster blends in with the floor tiles

Cows waiting to be milked

The milkmaids yoke

Farmyard view

The rain stayed away until lunchtime as we were sitting in the cafe, then the heavens opened and we were glad to take some shelter.

I will do another blog tomorrow with the pictures of the farmhouse where older sparkies may recognize some of the kitchen and washroom items.
I took a lot of photos.

    The weather may not have co-operated, but it still seems like you had a wonderful day and time there.....

    What a wonderful outing, Ellen. Pity about the rain, but the pics came out really well. I look forward to seeing the rest.

Love them all! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Looks like a great place to spend the day; lots of history here. Glad you didn't suffer from that horrible wind storm that London got this morning. emoticon
