We recently visited The Rare Breeds Farm over the Easter holidays. It was fun doing the Easter Bunny Hunt for a small chocolate prize with our young son. We enjoyed the Easter themed panto and also the tractor ride up through the farm. It was a bitterly cold day, but there are play areas indoors and outdoors so suits whatever the British weather throws at Kent.
The friendly animals were out before lunch and after lunch, and there were lots of baby ones for the children and adults to stroke and coo over. Some young lambs and kids were being bottle fed and the children enjoyed helping the farm hands.
There was an unusual African Hedgehog to hold and feel, and the exotic animals to admire in their enclosures.
We take a picnic to enjoy as and when we feel hungry, but making sure we wash our hands as often as needed and especially before eating after all we had been touching farm animals.
There are play areas for children of all ages, and the mysterious wood is a hit for the older children, or childish adults! Piggy racing has started again for the summer and is a must.
And the best thing about visiting The Rare Breeds farm is that it is a charity and provides employment for special needs people too.
