Big Grenagh welcome as Tractor Ted sets up home in The Farm

A much loved kids TV character is to become a new fixture at The Farm, Grenagh. Tractor Ted, the little green cartoon tractor, will be the new face welcoming visitors to Tractor Ted’s Little Farm, the latest attraction at the ever expanding Cork open farm. Ahead of the summer season and in order to facilitate Tractor Ted’s arrival to The Farm, almost €30,000 has been spent upgrading and enhancing existing facilities on The Farm as well as creating new amenities such as an animal interaction area and digger den. The expansion will also create an additional 4 positions, bringing to 12 the total number employed. “The arrival of Tractor Ted has breathed a new lease of life into The Farm, as we enter our 4th year of business”, says Marie Forde. “And we look forward to welcoming his little fans from all over the country to his new home in Cork”. Fun learning is key to the Tractor Ted Little Farm experience, you can see how a cow is milked, learn about butter churning and watch as the silage is cut or the hay is taken in, something The Farm, Grenagh has always been passionate about. The Farm at Grenagh is all about kids having fun and, with over 40 acres of land to explore, they’ll be entertained for hours! There are plenty of activities both inside and out on this traditional open working farm including a ball pool and sand pit, ‘kidbine’ harvester, slides, swings and more. You can travel around The Farm on the new Tractor Ted Trailer Ride, catch a lift on the Barrel Ride or hop on the pedal karts, mini tractors and test your flying skills on the zip wire! Plus there are lots of opportunities for hands on animal encounters with cows, sheep, horses, hens, ducks, pigs, puppies, birds and donkeys.
