Background Longdown Activity Farm is a farm created by Farmer Bryan. The farm was originally named ‘Longdown Dairy Farm.’ The reason this is no longer called this, is because the milk quota said that only a certain amount of milk can be sold. ‘Milk quotas were introduced by the EU as a way of limiting milk production across member states.’ (Source 8) As the farm was producing so much milk, they had to throw it all away. Ever since this, the farm has been called ‘Longdown Activity Farm. (Source 1) On the 9 th of September, my class and I took a trip down the Longdown Activity fam. We were able to help with feeding we then handled the chicks and the baby guinea pigs. Then to complete our day, we were able to have a Q+A with farmer Bryan himself.
Introduction (What is Longdown Activity Farm?) On the 9 th of September 2014, I took a trip to Longdown Activity Farm. We had the opportunity to help feed the animals such as: feeding the calves, fully grown, baby goats and pigs. We than went to one of the barns and had two activities to do, one being: we had time to handle the smaller animals such as baby chicks and guinea pigs. Second being: brushing two of the goats coats with the combing brushes supplied by the staff. Later that afternoon, Bryan (the owner) he answered all the questions we had prepared. Finally to complete our day, we had the chance to go on the tractor that is part of the activities on the farm. Going on this trip, helped me because now have my facts about Longdown Activity fam.
