Easter on the Farm

Easter Holidays at Cwmiar Farm are great fun for children from 0 to 100+!

Easter is a wonderful time of year, particularly on a farm, with Easter lambs frolicking as if they have springs on their feet, fluffy Easter chicks learning what to eat from mother hen, and Easter ducklings bobbing about like fluff-balls on the pond; there may even be calves and piglets too, and certainly wild Easter bunnies on the track; please be careful not to run them over.

Ducklings-on-pond-in-yard

The ducklings stay on the small pond in the yard until they are big enough to move up to the millpond.

Mummy-hen-chicks

The chicks stay in the nursery with their mum until they are big enough not to be so vulnerable to cats or birds of prey.

Children feed many animalsErin has managed to stroke a lamb, by being very quiet and going slowly she’s started to gain his trust.

Piggies' breakfast

Is this what they mean by a pigs’ breakfast?

A time of new beginnings – the first rays of warm sunshine reminding us that summer is just around the corner – April sunshine and showers, producing amazing rainbows that stretch across the Teifi Valley and finish with a crock of gold on Cwmiar or maybe the mountain beyond!

Time for lunch.

All of that in a unique setting on the slope of Llanllwni Mountain, naturally beautiful open moorland, peaceful and tranquil to clear the hassled mind and rest weary bones.

Down the lane in Llanllwni or Llanybydder, there are various churches and chapels and there is a Roman Catholic Church in Lampeter – 9 miles away. We are happy to inform you about the times of their services.

Collecting easter eggs

On Easter Sunday, either during the morning between feeding the animals, or after we’ve finished, we’ll have an Easter-egg hunt, which is great fun – the Easter-eggs are hidden everywhere – around the gardens, in the yard, in the playgrounds, they could be anywhere. Older children who are ‘too old’ to join in can help in hiding them the night before, which is just as much fun!! In the afternoon we can have afternoon tea in the club-house, enjoying table-tennis, snooker, skittles or any other of the activities that takes your fancy. An ideal way to relax and for everyone to get to know each other and for the children to play together.
