Egg Collecting, imagination and inspiration
There are endless possibilities for children and adults staying on a farm. There will be farming activities taking place during the year that you are welcome to watch and maybe help. There are eggs to collect, in spring lambs to feed and a paddock of Bethan’s ‘best friends’ to talk to. Of course there are the 220 acres of land with fields, streams and small wooded areas to explore and fire the imagination.
If you would like to bring your horse or pony along to enjoy rides accross open hill or country lanes then check Aberequine for further information on what facilities are available. For something a little bit different have a look at the Sheep Trekking and Farm Experience days page to see if there is something to wet your appitite.
In your cottage you will find an annotated Farm Trail if you would like some guidance with quizzes and questionnaires to complete, should you wish. Also in the file there is a fun activity book for young and old with hands on ways to discover the secrets of Organic farming!
