Family activity farms are a great way to spend the day with your loved ones. Children are able to discover and learn about various animals and the operation of a farm whilst enjoying outdoor activities at the same time.
When deciding to visit the family fun farm you may be faced with the dilemma of deciding when would be the best time to visit. Activity farms are great to go to all year round and will often have different events taking place in line with each of the different seasons. Many fun farms will have a calendar of events, listing the activities that are taking place each month.
Holidays and events that are often incorporated into the activity farm calendar include; Lambing season, which takes place during February, a major event within farm life where visitors are encouraged to learn about the lambing process and how baby lambs are cared for and fed. Easter is also another fun holiday celebrated around this time and many hold their own Easter egg hunts along with other exciting activities for both adults and children.
During spring time, farm activities will centre around the preparation of the farm and its animals for the months ahead. These activities include sheep shearing, planting new crops and flowers and general farm maintenance.
Summer is a peak time for family activity farms and is a key time for visitors during the summer school holidays. As a result most activity farms will hold different events and activities to take part in throughout the holidays. During September there will also be events taking place to highlight the harvest season which are aimed at educating children about this important time during the farming year.
Halloween is another great time to visit a family activity farm as there will be many spook-tacular events taking place. Pumpkin carving, creepy mazes and face-painting are all popular activities for fun farms at Halloween.
To end the year and celebrate Christmas in style with your children, you can often find great activities to take part in at the family activity farm. With visits to Santa, live nativity scenes, reindeer rides and much more, Christmas at the farm is a magical way to spend your day.
