Welcome ...
This blog has been created to allow family and friends to share in and become part of the experience of 'Down at the Farm'.
Enjoy the children, their love for each other and their open hearted wonder and excitement.
Over time you will get to know the farm through their eyes and will see how they spend their day with each other in a very rich, organic way.
Each vignette is a snapshot in time. Follow from one to another, then on to more and you can share in our unfoldment and journey.
Enjoy your visit ...

Ah the simple things in life ...

Simple seems the best for these guys, they just love the slow pace and being able to do anything they are interested in for as long as they like.

For example, today we spent 2 hours making a cake in a bucket with mud and grass and lots of other yummy things.  All the children got involved and were happy as anything for ages!

We found stirring sticks, each person adding their own flavour to this wonderful mess. We had: coriander, coconut, watermelon, cheese, tofu and all sorts of other flavours. We had a great time there under the peppercorn tree near the pigs and managed find and create something to do there for most of our day. I did suggest a few other adventures, but they were so happy, didn’t really want to leave, even when I said it was time for a picnic.

We did leave and had a yummy picnic in front of the fire in the barn, also had a cuddle with the guineapigs and a play near the duck pond and wow all of a sudden it was 12.50.

Such a great bunch to spend time with and we all really enjoyed our day ...
