Hi my name is Courtney and I’m a Farm Hand at the local community farm in Lawrence Weston. I’ve been a Farm Hand for about three months now and I love everything about it already. We do loads of fun things such as:
- Hold chickens.
- Collect the yummy chicken and duck eggs.
- Bake banana bread.
- Go on scavenger hunts
- Mucking out
- Pick fresh rhubarb from the garden and baked a rhubarb crumble with it.
- Go in all of the pens.
- Make awesome dens
- Outdoor art with different berries and leaves
We have done lots more things too but it would take up the whole page to write them all.
Everyone and anyone is allowed to be a farm hand as long as they are 8-11 years old no matter what shapes or sizes they are, as long as they come from the local area. Being a farm hand is the best thing that ever happened to me and I wouldn’t change a thing for the life of me. We learn new things every session and have the best time ever.
I love being a farm hand!
Courtney (aged 10)
