As Jackson is now 10 months old, and a lot more inquisitive of the world around him. I thought it’d be a good idea to take him to a local farm. Ideally I would of took him to visit a proper working farm, but time and money was not on our side. Instead while we was searching for somewhere, suitable for our son, we stumbled across Windmill Hill City Farm, located in Bedminster, Bristol. This city farm is a registered charity, so it relies solely on the communities generosity. This makes it a perfect outing for families, as entry isn’t a set fee. You donate what you can afford.
I loved how interactive the farm was from reading about it, from the play area for children, to buying animal food in the gift shop, to feed the various farm animals. You could even stroke and pet the farm animals. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of hand sanitizer around the farm, plus toilet facilities near the central hub. The central hub is the centre of the farm, and is home to the café, play area, and toilets.
This was our first ever visit to the city farm. Jackson was excited to see more animals. He loves the cats and dogs, various family pets. At the city farm, Jackson got to see many farm animals including; Pigs, Goats, Sheep, Cows, Chickens and Geese. I’ll include some pictures from the day. But I didn’t take much, as we just enjoyed the day, and made memories.
All in all, it was a fun day out and helped us spend some time together as a family. We’ll be back in the future.
