Last week we had our long-awaited outing at The Farm. It was a wonderful and enriching experience for the children through which they learned a lot! Farmer Mark gave us plenty of information about the sheep and lambs on his farm. We saw Farmer Mark feeding and milking the sheep. He explained that every time he milks the sheep he checks that they are in good health and so their milk is good to use. Farmer Mark showed us how cheeselets (ġbejniet) are made out of the fresh milk and the children had the opportunity to taste the cheeselets too. Farmer Mark also showed us the lambs and the children could see them at close range and pet them too!  We had a picnic on the farm and the children also had time to run and play in the fresh open air. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and this was definitely an outing that they will remember 🙂
