Easter Egg Hunt at Farmer Palmers

Easter weekend was definitely a full on family adventure weekend for us. Clara’s mum had very kindly given us vouchers for our local farm, so we decided to attend the Easter Egg Hunt at Farmer Palmers. We always love visiting Farmer Palmers as it’s got the right amount of activities to keep M busy for the day.

With an indoor play area, hay bale slide section, bouncy castles as well as animals, there is always something M can enjoy. When we first arrived M headed straight for the ride on tractor trailers. I love watching him on these as when we visited a couple of years ago for the Easter Egg Hunt he was too small to pedal the tractors and now he flies about on them. Next up it was the go karts which he still needs a little help with, so I was happy to assist as you can see from the picture below. We won’t win any races, but we have fun.

As M grows he becomes more and more interested in the animals, it’s really lovely to see. Our favourite animals this visit were the pigs. They were fighting for space together and made cute little snuffly noises as they snuggled.

After some lunch and some cuddles with a guinea pig it was time for the Easter Egg Hunt. The set up was different to the last time we attended an Easter Egg Hunt at Farmer Palmers, but seemed much less busy than previous years. Which was actually a bonus as we knew as soon as they said go, there was going to be a mad rush onto the field and we didn’t want M getting pushed out of the way. Luckily there was no big rush and M was happy to search among the grass.

I was quite impressed with M’s collection once the Easter egg hunt was over. This year the announcer made sure no grown ups collected the eggs, so M found all his eggs on his own with us just guiding him towards some possible egg locations.

If you find yourself in Dorset around Easter next year I highly recommend a visit. It’s such a lovely little farm with a restaurant on site in case you forget your picnic.

    Farmer Palmers always looks like a fab day out and it’s clear they really don’t scrimp on their Easter Egg Hunt! Every time you visit M looks like he’s having a wonderful time exploring all the different play areas and activities. It’s fab that he’s getting more and more interested in animals too, I bet you’ll be heading back to see the animals again soon!

    Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.
