Our education coordinator, Linda, runs brilliant school trips. Something to suit every age and topic. Come and visit a real working farm.
From just £5.99 (one adult goes free with every five children), we can cater your day to any topic you choose. For key stage 1 & 2, we meet you at 10am with a quick safety talk and comfort break. We take you out onto the farm to meet our free range pigs, sheep and 300 laying hens! We show you how we collect the eggs and feed the animals and then take you into the real grain sheds and get up close and personal with some really big farm machinery. Children will also be able to visit the animals on our wonderful animal trail and enjoy our indoor & outdoor play facilities, of course! Older students will have a personal programme worked out by our experienced head of education, Linda. She works on ways to make your day both fun and educational.
