Farm life

Not far from where we live you'll find the only city farm in Wales. Swansea Community Farm was set up by members of the community twenty years ago and is now a registered charity run by volunteers. 

"A city farm where volunteers care for livestock, wildlife and each other to improve community wellbeing and resilience."

For the first time today I visited it along with Younger Son, Nuora and GrandSon4. 

As well as all sorts of fowl they have sheep, pigs and donkeys, a vegetable growing area, and loads of fruit trees and bushes. And a superb mud kitchen!

A genuine mud pie.

The animals are mostly rare or Welsh breeds.

And best of all I got to feed a lamb!

Entry to the farm is free although donations are welcome.

I do like that sheep's hairdo!
We've got a city farm too, though it's not free. Families buy a cheap yearly ticket instead.
