Cholderton Charlie’s Farm

close encounter with the kidsAll across the UK you’ll find several farms to visit. This one, close to Salisbury is a bit special. Of course you have the common goatkids and lambs to cuddle, rabbits to hold and horses, cows, pigs and a duckpond. The thing a bit different is that these pigs and horses are rare breeds, different from the usual breeds. But then again,- a pig is a pig isn’t it? My family’s favourite will still be the piglet-race! Every afternoon the tiny piglets get geared up with tiny hats and small teddy bears as jockeys while they race down the field similar to a horse race. It may sound like piglet-abuse but it’s great fun and the piglets looks like they are having fun,- and they race down to get food so there’s something in it for them as well! 

The Cholderton Charlie’s Farm has a a small café and a nice garden for picnic. And if you would like to go back in time, why not take a  tractor and trailer ride sitting on hay balls and just pretend you’re a country lad?
