Guided Tour

Children will learn what being a farmer entails, how animals are kept and why.

What does an animal need to be happy and healthy?

A group of up to 30 children will recieve a tour around the farm by a member of staff, learning about the animals and how they are cared for, as well as getting to meet them, certain animals can be pet and hand-fed, many of the animals here love people and will often stick their heads through the fences when they see visitors .

Children will be free to ask the staff member questions about their work on the farm and the tour will be tailored specifically for the group, for example older KS2 children will learn more in depth information about the animals such as the habitats their wild counterparts would live in, a group interested in science could learn more specifically about the biology of the animals. Feel free to discuss with farm staff about the needs of your group.

30 – 45 min session / Suitable for KS1 & 2 / £1 per child (Groups up to 30)
