Meet Alfie - an energetic and curious eight-year-old with a passion for all things farm-related. He spends most of his free time playing with his toy farms, tractors, and diggers, which he proudly displays in his room. Alfie is also an avid gardener and takes great pleasure in helping with gardening tasks. When he's not outside, he loves to build with his Lego blocks while listening to audiobooks, which fuels his imagination and creativity.
