Seeing the kids faces light up as they hand feed the sheep in the morning is one of the simple pleasures of a rural life that you can’t find anywhere else, and it makes for a holiday experience that will stay with them for the rest of their life. In fact, we could say it is second only to picking a freshly laid egg in the morning to eat for breakfast - or maybe riding around the farmyard on a tractor and trailer. Perhaps it is as memorable as the first time they walked and groomed a pony, or bottle fed an orphaned baby lamb. The truth is, a holiday to a working farm is so full of these little moments that will last a lifetime, you might find it a little difficult to keep track!
At Devon farms, we have collected the best and brightest working farms for you to visit, so that you can not only be guaranteed an authentic farming experience, but also a great quality holiday too. So why not browse our hand-picked collection today, and give your kids the holiday of a lifetime this season?
