As you know we have a big Tractor Ted fan in this house, and he’s still talking about last weekend’s trip to the Tractor Ted Farm Show. So we were keen to find out more about other Tractor Ted events and to learn more about Tractor Ted’s Little Farm.
The Little Farm was unveiled as a permanent attraction at Bowood House, Calne, Wiltshire, for the very first time in March 2013 for children to gain a fun understanding of the countryside. In Tractor Ted’s Barn youngsters can meet friendly farm animals such as pygmy goats, Gloucester Old Spot pigs and ewes with lambs whilst also being able to handle rabbits, guinea pigs and hens. They can also see newly hatched chicks, enjoy lots of farm games and watch Tractor Ted’s real life films. Outside they’ll enjoy riding around the mini tractor track, ball scooping in the mini digger den and play make-believe farming in the animal dens. Beside the farm is a cosy café for parents to relax in with their children.
