We are really excited to be working with Tractor Ted at the moment. Monkey absolutely loves Tractor Ted, who teaches children about farms; the machinery, animals, produce and seasons. Children learn in a fun, but very factual way and he has become a big hit here, with my tractor and big machinery obsessed son!
We wanted to let you know about their forthcoming Farm show which also incorporates the Bowood Charity Dog Show & Summer Fair – it’s held on Sunday 9th June 2013, at Bowood House, Chippenham, Wiltshire SN11 0LZ from 10am – 5pm. For Sat Nav use SN11 9NF.
It’s going to be an action packed day with lots of fun for all the family. Here is a taster of some of the things you can see when you visit:
Tractor Ted’s Little Farm – see the farm animals, experience milking time, sheep shearing, hear about bee keeping, enjoy a pony ride and watch the pigs racing. If that’s not enough, you will also be able to buy local produce and country crafts.
Tractor Ted’s Puncture Repair Centre – you will have the opportunity to watch large farm machines have their tyres repaired and re-fitted. I’m sure this is going to be a favourite with Monkey!
Tractor Ted’s Digger Spectacular – Digger Dave and friend and their JCB diggers will be entertaining everyone with 2 displays in the main ring – this will be a MUST for us.
Tractor Ted’s Baling – Les, Tractor Ted’s driver will be showing us how his tractor skills and will be available to say hello to all his fans.
Tractor Ted’s Giant Combine Harvester Event – Watch the Claas Combine Harvester in the show ring twice during the day.
