Today I took my youngest to a farm that is open to tours. He LOVES animals and it was such a delight to watch his facial expression as he encountered each animal up close. It was lovely just having that one on one time together, which is rare with 2 older siblings

  • It is such a joy when you have relatives or friends on a farm. We had distant relatives who lived on farms. We were allowed to help bottle feed some lambs that had taken from their Mum for some reason. It was very upsetting when one they had rescued with its Mum died. Their kids were used to it and took it in their stride – not me. One family had some emu chicks they had rescued. Another had some joeys they were hand rearing on bottles.


  • The first time I took my son to visit his grandparents on my side, I loved seeing his reactions to the animals too. Mum and dad had a small farm so we could get up close with the animals as they were semi tame


  • That’s awesome. My daughter loves going to farms and zoos


  • storys are nice


  • It’s great to have that one on one time.


  • Sounds like awesome activity for kids :)


  • my kids have never seen a farm
