Peppa and George were the star attraction at the opening of the new indoor playbarn at The Pink Pig Farm near Scunthorpe last weekend.

Queues started forming at 10am and the two porkers were mobbed all day by adoring toddlers.

Peppa hardly had time to whizz down the slide, play in the kitchen, climb over the indoor play (she might have got stuck in the rollers!) or enjoy a delicious piece of cake in the 'Oink' cafe.

The play barn is the latest venture at The Pink Pig Farm which already comprises a prizewinning farm shop and restaurant.

The farm is a real farm rearing free range pigs, sheep and chickens for eggs and invites over 1000 school children a year to learn where real food comes from. "This was a natural step for us", said Sally Jackson, co-owner with her husband Andrew.

"With so many children already enjoying the farm park, we were crying out for some indoor play for when the weather is a little inclement. We were helped by a Regional Growth Fund grant from North Lincolnshire council who recognised that we would create some valuable new jobs in addition to enhancing the tourism offer in North Lincolnshire.The Playbarn will also be offering free toddler play sessions every weekday from 11am during school terms and special events during the holidays for older children.

"The Oink Cafe is proving a huge hit and the emphasis is firmly on good food, much of which, is straight from the farm.

"Our homegrown free range eggs are appearing in freshly made sandwiches every day and we are serving our own free range homemade sausages and dry cure bacon in soft buns", continued Sally

"All our cakes, tray bakes, soups and the children’s meal of the day are homemade in our farmhouse kitchen and of course, no meal would be complete without our hand cut chips!".

The Pink Piglet Play Barn and Oink Cafe are open seven days a week - Mon-Sat 9-6 and Sunday 10-5.
