a day at the farm

warning: photo heavy post!

In my previous post, I mentioned that we recently spent part of a day at Calmsley Hill City Farm. It was fun watching not only the farming activities, but the different reactions of members of my family.

Here is a selection of photos of our day out, mostly taken by WM.
