    I’m so jealous, I worked on a farm as a kid from 10 until I was 14 (was there for the horses and the riding school but it soon expanded). It was brilliant, I learnt to drive (Landrover, tractor, HGV), I learnt to care for horses, cows, pigs, sheep and hens. It’s long hours, in all weather’s but it was freedom and I loved it. I’d love that for my children but it would take a lottery win and a steep learning curve to get it.

  2. I grew up on a farm, I can remember doing all these things and more as a kid. It’s the best experience ever for children and I wish my kids have the chance to experience the same.
    Being chased across the yard by a rooster around 5 years old is a fond memory. The bloody thing got me and pecked my forehead when I tripped!
    Unfortunately my dad passed away in April and my mum had to sell up the farm.

    We do have some of dads chickens in our garden now and my girls adore them!

    Your kids will remember these experiences for ever xx
