I have no doubt that Rare Breeds is one of my favourite places,
Butterflies, Tractor rides and even pig races.
I’d been before and absolutely loved that day
So was excited last Sunday as we made our way.
Our first stop of the morning was the petting farm.
Lots of friendly and tame animals wandering a barn.
My absolute favourite was the Nubian Goat,
But the piglets and rooster also get my vote.
The animals and their babies were the the cutest I’ve seen,
All well looked after, very happy; cute and clean.
The piglets were suckling their huge proud mum,
Whilst the cheeky goats were skipping curiously, having mischievous fun.
After a hour in the farm we fancied a bite to eat,
Finding the picnic area with ample tables, umbrellas and lots of seat.
We scoffed our sandwiches knowing there was still lots to see,
Managing to quickly fit in a cup of steaming hot tea!
After eating we went for a stroll in the deep dark wood,
a fox saw us strolling and thought we looked good….
Finding the Mysterious Marsh, taking me back to my sweet childhood.
We clambered across beams and swung through trees,
Before stopping for photographs of the bluebells which swayed in the breeze.
Following the assault course we went for a walk,
Passing beautiful ponds and birds that would all loudly squawk.
We hopped on a tractor on the way back,
Bopping along rapidly down a mud track.
Back in the farm, we stopped again to refuel,
A icecream for each of us, keeping us cool.
Feeling nice and refreshed we headed to the birds of prey,
Followed by pig racing to end our marvellous day.
Seasonally the farm has birds and butterflies too,
Which passed very gracefully as they all happily flew.
The farm also boasts with a huge soft play,
Plus a barn with more toys making it a full and very packed day!
I absolutely loved my day at Rare Breeds,
Full of adventure, variety and suitable for all needs.
