Essex is noted for wonderful Piers. Southend, Clacton, Brentwood. The last of these is here at Old Macdonald’s Farm, and in our opinion is far better than the others.
When you go to Southend and stroll down the promenade one of the first things you notice is the lack of Pigs. What can you see? Just the sea! Nothing squealing, squawking or grunting, apart from you and the kids of course, but when you walk down ours, lovely and rare Kune Kune pigs are there to be viewed. Whelks and fresh air have their place but the fragrance of fresh pig is special. Sort of.
Plus, take Clacton. Stand at the end and all there are will be ships. OK we suppose, but where is the M25 with the wonderful variety of lorries and cars, and sometimes flying and occasionally crawling full of frustrated motorists? Nothing like that to be seen from Clacton Pier.
Also, these piers are nice but not rare. Go around Britain if you must and you will find lots of these stuck out in the Ocean, but our Pig Pier is unique. No one else has built one of these, and to be honest no one is likely to either.
Also new here at the farm, following pressure from the Goats who nagged him endlessly about the time and money he was spending on building brand new play areas for children, Old Macdonald has built a new climbing ladder for his flock. Now they want him to build an indoor play area for their kids as he has done for your kids. They will be lucky!
