We were quite disappointed with our trip to macdonalds farm with our 2 year old. Expecting something like Marsh Farm we were excited to show our child different animals and to hopefully feed them etc...however on arrival it was evident straight away that this was more of an amusement park for older children. Lots of rides and inflatables. We thought that this might just be an extra part of the place. When we entered the serving staff were obviously under staffed and were not very polite. Getting into the main part of the setting was difficult because there was only one way in and out meaning large amounts of families with prams were trying to use one small doorway. Once we got to the outside area we started looking at the animals. There was only 1 of each animal and a few goats clumped together, this we felt was cruel as they were alone. We felt we had paid alot of money to see animals on a farm and actually it seemed that there was more money spent on amusements then there had been on the animals that they advertise for you to see. All in all a nice place for older children to burn off energy outside but not a place for young children to learn about farm animals.
