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


tractors


American jeep




Motorbike and machinery


Shepherds hut

Farmyard ducks


Piglets


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

The rooster blends in with the floor tiles


Cows waiting to be milked

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.
