Once upon a time DD wanted to be a farmer, sadly she no longer does, but it was still a fun day out (despite the rain) and we enjoyed watching the sheep shearing and the carriage driving, as well as the birds of prey (I covet a Harris Hawk)

I didn't take any pictures of the pigs though. They use rather intensive methods, farrowing crates (they looked awful) and dock the youngsters tails as they are kept indoors and so bite and fight. It was the only sad bit of the day, the pig sheds.
All in all it was a fun day, the food was great and Dd bought a new school bag. I wasn't aware that the college taught so many courses either!
