Bugthorpe under 5s May 2014

It was a very wet morning when the Thursday group came to Uncleby. First of all we watched a slide show about Harvest. Mike explained the different processes from sowing the seed to milling the wheat. The children then planted their own seeds in the egg boxes.

The rain stopped so we put on our wellies and went to see the new lambs in the field.

Then we visited the pet lambs in the shed…

Farmer Geoff let us watch him put a bale of haylage into the feeder for the bullocks. Freddie said “that was amazing!”  The haylage smells lovely, we put some into the troughs too…
