The beautiful weather and promise of a fun, free day out for the family brought hundreds of visitors to our lovely Burns Penlan Farm in Kidwelly on Sunday June 7th.
The event was part of Open Farm Sunday, which saw farms across the UK open their doors to members of the public, giving them the opportunity to learn about farming, meet animals and enjoy various activities.
Activities for children included feeding the lambs, milking pretend cow Miss Daisy and meeting some newborn chicks. There were also vintage tractors to climb on, craft activites and fun games to play.
Visitors also got the chance to meet insects from Dr Beynon’s Bug Farm and then eat some cricket cookies from the Grub Kitchen!
Other attractions included farm walks, a guided bird watching walk, conservation stands and a warm welcome from the residents of Parc y Bocs - chickens, cows, sheep, pigs and a herd of alpacas!
Our Farm Secretary Rowan Flindall-Shayle said: “We were amazed at the turn out for Open Farm Sunday this year. It’s fantastic to be able to provide an enjoyable day out for visitors where they can learn about a working farm right on their doorstep”.
Burns Penlan Farm and Burns Pet Nutrition would like to thank all the visitors and everyone involved for making the day such a great success.
