Farm Ride

14th May 2014

Here at The Olde House our guests have been enjoying the weekly farm ride for over 20 years.

Back in the old days, Wilf would drive the tractor and Andrew talked to the visitors. Since Wilf’s retirement, Andrew’s son Olly has taken over the driving, but Andrew is still talking! But who better to tell the story of the farm than Andrew, who was born here over 60 years ago and whose Granfer bought the farm nearly 100 years ago in 1915! For many years, a flat bed trailer was used for the ride, with straw bales set out in a line up the middle for everyone to sit on, but with changing times and new rules in health and safety, we now have a brand new trailer. With disabled access, a roof and proper seats, everyone can enjoy the farm ride come rain or shine!
