chools and larger groups: We belong to ‘Farms for Schools’ and welcome any group of any age. Organisers are welcome to come for a free pre-visit to discuss your requirements.
School trips take around 1.5 – 2 hours with 0.5 hrs of talks in the barn. The tractor and trailer rides stop at various points where farming practices are pointed out. Also the geography of the area and the flora and fauna are pointed out. The talks can be tailored as to how much detail is required. With a question and answer session at each point there is lots of information on the countryside to be acquired.
Please note this is a working farm and not a farm park. So when you come you can see a working farm and learn what goes on and the wildlife and flowers that are associated with it. We will help schools visits and have our risk assessment which can be sent on request and have a comprehensive insurance. Our new barn also has full disabled access and toilet facilities. just email Jenny in advance to discuss your requirements and welcome teachers for a pre-visit to go through any other needs. We are also approved by the Countryside Educational Visits Accreditation Scheme – CEVAS.
Please let us have your work sheets beforehand and let us know what subjects etc you wish to cover, then we will do our best to tailor your trip to fit around your topics.
We have a limited number of subsided or Free visits for groups with special needs at lambing time. This includes groups from care homes.
Do contact us with the size of the groups and your needs – please email email us. or check contact us for more info.
* Time and length of tours will depend on weather and questions asked by people on the tours.
