I was lucky enough to win some tickets to Kenilworth Agricultural show. It is a annual event to showcast the best of agricultural in Warwickshire. It is a great family fun filled day and plenty of attractions to keep you entertained.
First thing we stumbled across after entering the front entranc was the owl displays. My boys loved getting up close and personal and seeing all the different types of owls. It was a great way to get talking and observing the differences between the birds.
Of course there was plenty of tractors new and old to look at. We watched the display with all the different types of vehicles used by farmers.
There was also a tent hosting the modern technology involved in farming. Of course the boys had to have a go and explore.
There was an educational area with plenty of information on a variety of topics. Above my DS1 learnt how to milk a cow (demonisation only not real cow).
There was also the wildlife trust there given information about the wildlife and the different types of creepy crawlys. Another area had all about wool and what that was used for. Such as making clothing and rugs.
I love the fact there was a pink dog.
We moved on to look at how left over food can be used to feed the slugs.
We learnt about how rotten potatoes are joy good for farmers. They are not sellable and such a waste of a time. Not to mention the waste of time and loss of money.
Interestingly there was a stall discussing the process of making the cheese.
Outside you could watch the bees and here a discussion on the process of looking after bees and making honey.
My eldest was fascinated with why there was such a tall man walking around, haha!
There was also an area to look at the different types of catal. We had a wonder around but my youngest loved the sheep and didn’t want to leave them!
My ds1 hilariously commented how male sheep have testicles like him but bigger, lol!
My eldest loves to learn about the body so when hecame across this skeleton he was mesmerised. He went in great detail about the different areas of the skeleton. I an sure he could have spend all day there talking about the human anatomy.
There were plenty of demonstrations on in the viewing area ranging from dog and duck, horse and cart and the motorcycle stunt display. My youngest was a tat scared of the motorcycles with the noise and so hide through most of it.
We were really lucky that it was a really warm day and I have to say the toilets and general area was so clean and tidy. Definately recommend it if you are close.
