Our education coordinator, Linda, runs amazing school trips. Something to suit every age and topic. Come and see a real 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 real farm to meet our free range pigs, sheep and 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 to some really big farm machinery. 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.
Different visit experiences on offer:
Bread making - the children take the journey right through from the wheat seed, how it's grown, harvested, stored, made into flour and then make their own bread cakes which are baked for them to take home.
Meet the butcher - the children have the unique opportunity to see Bret the butcher at work, Tuesday and Wednesday cutting up, Thursday sausage making.
Sowing and growing - learning all about plants and how they grow. The children plant seeds in their own pots to take back to school with a diary sheet so the can log when their seeds germinate and measure the plants at different growth stages.
Farmyard arts and crafts - making collages out of different materials found on the farm, have a go at making corn dollies. Seasonal crafts such as pumpkin carving, Christmas decorations.
