An Afternoon Walk in the Countryside

We are so lucky to have the beautiful Fordhall Farm with its country trails right on our doorstep.  It's a lovely place to walk around and get some exercise and fresh air on a Sunday afternoon.  The farm is certified organic and is community owned having 8000 landlords who helped save the farm from development by buying shares in the land.  The land is used for the benefit of the community and there is a wonderful restaurant and farm shop on site.  There are animals being reared naturally with the utmost focus on their welfare.  They aim is to support Wildlife, Food, Farming, Sustainability,  Education, Health and Our Children's Future. We are proud to have such a wonderful place in our town.

I love watching my country kids playing together and running freely across the fields at Fordhall Farm.  They  can jump on the tree stump stepping stones, play on the wooden see-saw, balance on the logs and swing on the tyre swing.  They explore the dens and spot nature's flora and fauna.  It's just a perfect place and we love it.

We had a lovely afternoon with our country kids, enjoying the very best of what North Shropshire has to offer.  (Unfortunately Ella decided to stay at home finishing off her Chemistry homework that she has left until the last minute!)
