Fun on the Farm
Posted on May 19, 2015 | By smoorewoolsery
We had an enjoyable day at Ashcroft Farm; many thanks to Mr Pennington, Gita, Jackie, and Bob and Vicky Meeson. After a snack in the barn, we learnt about how one day old chicks are reared to become fully grown hens.
Crossing the fields, we found one of the sources of the River Torridge and followed the course of the river to the bridge, distributing ping pong balls on the way, observing how they travelled along.
In the afternoon, many creatures were dipped from the pond including newts, numerous tadpoles, water beetles, fleas and snails.
