As the new Education Officer at Chatsworth, it is really good to see the farmyard so busy with summer visitors. I went to see the Young Farmers Discovery Day in full swing yesterday. It was a real treat to see the children getting hands on with a range of practical farming activities. We collected eggs and met the new chicks, groomed the beautiful Shire horse, Naomi, cleaned out a variety of animal pens and helped with the animal handling sessions. There are also Young Farmers Plus days where older children get to help with milking, move the farm animals to their paddocks at the end of the day, make feeds and do more cleaning out. A real farming experience with lots of good information from the farm staff. I learned a lot.
