Marsh Farm is like a city farm, except it's in the country, if that makes sense.

It's a working farm where visitors can see cows being milked, sometimes sheep sheared, horses groomed, sows with tiny piglets and they have plans for goat milking too.

Anyway, that's the educational stuff. In addition to this there is a massive outdoor play area, indoor play barn, indoor soft play, a small track with electric cars, a tractor and trailer ride, a giant sandpit, bouncy castle, pony rides and donkey rides.

Go on, guess. Which bit of Marsh Farm do the children enjoy the most: education or play?

No contest, although Hannah said she liked the pigs best. There were some piglets with their mum who had been born today. Let's hear a chorus of "ahhh", or my favourite - "ahhh bacon".
