middle farm ...

Today we visited Middle Farm, a 625 acre working family farm, which nestles at the foot of Firle Beacon on the South Downs in Sussex. As you can see I didn't bother to dress up!



Nor did the other half!



Lovely old buildings. The Skies & Scarecrow gift shop and entrance/exit to the working farm which costs £3 each for adults.



A Gloucester Old Spot. I love pigs, I was born and grew up on a farm.



A rather cute Jersey calf making the most of the sunshine, just like us.



This is a goat? Well it was in with them!



My dad had a tractor much like this back in the 1960s.



This really is the first time I have seen a turkey still with its feathers!



A majestic peacock.



Pets on the farm too. Just look at these sweet little bunnies!



This guinea pig has his own little house!

How lucky you were to grow up on a farm... I love the turkey, I'm trying to convince Pete to let me have a pet turkey..they are so damned ugly you can't help but feel sorry for them, looks like their brains have leaked out..eww! have a great Bank Holiday x

Hi,
Lovely guinea pig house, better than some student digs I have stayed in! You have been tagged. Rues on my blog hope you can take part.
Best wishes.

Sounds like a lovely day. I always loved spending time on my relatives' farms. I miss it. Your outfit was perfect, tho!

I used to love visiting the farm. Now the teens think is the uncoolest thing to do so we have to be a bit canny about getting them there.

What a fun day. I just want to pet each and every animal in your pictures, especially the bunnies! The buildings are adorable too. I wouldn't mind living somewhere that looked like that. :)

What a great day out. I would love so much to drive a tractor like that one! I always dreamed of growing up on a farm.

I still dream of owning a small holding - which was my maternal grandmothers dream too!

Looks like a fun day out to me..
Your wardrobe looks much the same as mine Louise..
and is that sun I see there? What happened to the deluge that we had on Sunday??
After my brief fling with Sussex this weekend I am totally smitten.. I would love to explore this area more and Middle Farm looks like a good place to start.
