Top 10 things every farm should have

This weekend’s low was a day trip to Mini and Maxi Moo’s Adventure Land in Morpeth. What a disappointment (see the tripadvisor reviews if you don’t believe me!). It was that bad that I’m trying to rework my memory of it – so that it doesn’t count as my first official farm trip of the year. I did get to take some pictures of some happy animal faces tho. I like big, happy animal grins. And Winston Churchill quotes.

Happy Horse Face

“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man”

Snuffly Pig Face

“I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”

Specifically, these are the top 10 things that every farm should have;

  • Animal feed – there’s nothing better than goat froth all over your hands in the cold, winter months
  • Homemade cakes – nom nom nom
  • Animal petting (carefully-supervised-by-experienced-staff-animal-petting, that is)
  • Picnic barns where you’re allowed to bring your own food, sit on hay and SAVE MONEY
  • A shop that sells pencils with the farm’s name on for for less than one British pound (for my collection)
  • Happy animals (boring stuff like spacious enclosures/ nutritious food/ smiley faces are in this category)
  • A zoo license – so they can include ‘unusual’ animals. Mostly meerkats – maybe some wallabies – but definitely meerkats
  • Cafes that have funny animal themed names
  • Puns – farmtastic fun headlines
  • Finally homemade jam (or preserves if you’re posh) on sale – preferably lemon curd, please
