On the Farm......

Once upon a time a young man went to England all the way from Africa to study at Uni.  He had to work to cover his board and lodging and one day he went to work on a turkey and wheat farm and happened to fall in love with the farmers daughter. 
 
Lucky for me they live and work on the farm and now there is a wonderful little grandiegirl Maddy in the family too....... and she took Hubz and I on a tour.....
 
out through the gate....

past the barns.....

.... and the big machines.....

through the hay bales......

.... the turkeys came to have a look at us......

..... admired the fields of winter wheat.....


..... found some puddles to splash in on the way....

...... farmhouse accommodation.....


..... best use of a haybale is for sliding down.....


.... and we had some time at the playground too.....

 
Lovely farm tour... thanks to Maddy......
 
Righto, Gotto Go..... Maddy loves storytime......
