The Pink Pig Farm Review

I'm sure like most families that spending quality time together is high on the priority list. It's one of my highest priorities. Our typical working week involves work in the evenings for me, work during the day for my husband, school, preschool and after school clubs not to mention homework, cooking and cleaning.  It doesn't leave much time to spend as a family. That's why I cherish the weekend. It's the one time we can spend together all five of us. 

Last weekend we visited The Pink Pig Farm near Scunthorpe. The Pink Pig Farm is a children's farm park bursting with play, animals and imagination. It is also a working farm with a fantastic farm shop and inviting restaurant, The Greedy Pig serving delicious homemade food.

On arrival to the farm park you enter through the play barn. The play barn is a large soft play area suitable for younger and older children. The play barn includes a bumpy slide, giant rolling balls, mini zip lines and separate toddler area which includes a smaller slide. My oldest two had a great time doing loops of the barn burning up lots of energy! Located in the indoor play barn is the Oink cafe, serving delicious soups, sandwiches and treats for children and adults, toilets including a disabled toilet with baby changing facilities. 

If your children haven't burned up too much energy there is lots to see outside. Heading out of the playbarn you come across a bale pool. There are ropes for children to swing from or in the case of my children just throw lots of straw at daddy! The outside play area has lots to do and see and where we spent a lot of our time. There is a zip line, giant sand pit, grass sledges, giant swing, mud kitchen and duck racing. 

Venturing round to the other side of the play barn there is a giant play digger, a smaller sand pit and ride on tractors. Here is also where you can ride on the pink tractor and see the animals up close. Some of the animals you can see at The Pink Pig Farm include pigs (naturally), sheep, chickens, alpacas, rabbits and guinea pigs. There is a large animal handling area so you can see some rabbits and guinea pigs up close at specific times. Also located next to the animals is a large hand washing station.

One of our favourite things to do at The Pink Pig Farm was to ride on the tractor. The pink tractor takes you for a short ride to see some of your favourite animals close up. Tractor rides operate at various times of the day which you will be told upon arrival. 

So as if all this isn't enough you can also visit the newly opened Piggy Tale Lane imaginative play area, this is located out of the farm park next to the Greedy Pig Restaurant. This imaginative play area is truly a wonderful space filled with various role play areas to capture your child's imagination. Here your child can play in the farm shop filled with pretend foods, do a spot of shopping, play in the cafe serving drinks and food to customers, do a spot of cooking or cleaning in the kitchen, fix the tractor or do a spot of building in the workshop, look after the animals in the vets or simply do some dress up. My children absolutely loved the imaginative area and spent a good hour in there. It is such a lovely addition and really offers children the chance to use their imaginations in lots of different ways. There is no additional fee to visit Piggy Tale Lane, it is included in your admission price.

Throughout the year The Pink Pig Farm host lots of seasonal events. This Easter The Pink Pig Farm are running a Mad Hatters Easter Eggstraviganzer from March 24th until April 15th. This is included in your admission price and includes an Easter egg hunt, crafts with the Queen of Hearts and Cheshire Cat Woodland Way.

So if you are looking for a fun filled family day out then The Pink Pig Farm is definitely worth a visit. For more information visit www.pinkpigfarm.co.uk
