The West Country is well known for its 'Ooh aar' breed of farmers, drinking copious amounts of rough-brewed cider, driving tractors, chasing badgers, and of course singing along with The Wurzels.
It's time to forget the usual Stag and Hen events and get yourselves down to the farm for some fun and frolics in the fields and fresh air. “Get thee down Somerset for the time of yer life, ooh aar!”
This totally unique and hilarious ‘West Country’ day out is guaranteed to have you rolling in the hay with laughter. The farmer, his minxy milkmaids and hunky farmboys will take good care of you, provide fancy dress for the Stag and feed you up with a bbq and some local cider. Proper job!
Here, in his own words, is what the farmer has ready for you:
The Cider Run
Pilfer that cheeky pint an' leg it as far as you can before you gets twanged by the bungee! The longer the run the more you score.
The Wurzels 'av had it comin' for years, av' you 'eard Ooh Aar Just A Little Bit? Now's yer chance to dish out some revenge. Armed to the teeth with cider apples you'll be firin' them at the band an' you might get a shot at that pesky Blackbird they sings about.
Time to muck in with the team to lug tyres from one spot to another with a silly dance, then over the finish line. It ain't like playin' 'oop an' stick neither. You gotta be quick mind, there's points at stake.
A traditional way to sort out our disputes we've 'ad to tone it down. Some bloke with an 'ard hat and clipboard said we can't use proper pitchforks any more. Summat 'bout 'ealth an' safety. So get ready for some podium perched inflatable pitchfork proddin'. Knock 'em off!
You thought the last game was daft? You ain't seen nothin' 'til you've 'ad yer mangold dangled. Bar skittles with 'umans on cider kegs? Yer 'avin' a laaf!
Yeah but no but smack'er! An epic battle of 'alf-wits this un'. Fat suits an' big burberry 'andbags to batter the life out of eachother. Give yer opponent evils! The most direct hits gets the most points.
A skilled traditional village event, take it in turns to lob a welly boot into a series of targets. We'll make sure they's bin washed after muckin' out the pigs. Accurate lobbin' gets points
This is real west country skittles, with a wooden alley as yer lanes, and a set of wooden skittles. It ain't that easy tho' as you spin round the pole first. See 'em stagger as they bowl 'em dizzy my babber!
Like Mastermind but the Stag or 'en will be sat on a chair below a gert bucket of Somerset slurry! Can they 'andle the pressure...?
