A visit to an authentic farm is a unique and special experience. You can find out all about the history of farming and the differences between how it was done in the old day compared to nowadays. But probably the best part of it is to explore how it feels to be an actual farmer. A typical farmer will carry out a range of duties, including cleaning and tending to livestock, ploughing, planting and harvesting crops, tractor driving and other general handiwork.
If you are ready to get your insight into a true farmer’s life, here’s 7 amazing activities that you can experience on our farms:
