Your Farming Day
Days start early on the farms, with children taking responsibility for feeding and watering the animals each morning before returning to the farmhouse for a hearty breakfast.
The mid-morning countryside, food and farming session is followed by a healthy homecooked lunch and free time for playing in the fields, lawns and orchards that surround the farmhouses.
A pause in farming activities at this time allows teachers to deliver their own curriculum-focused sessions in the farmhouse classrooms or parlours, and to allow the children to indulge in creative activities.
By mid-afternoon the farming sessions start again with jobs around the farm or perhaps a long walk through the fields to check on the health of the livestock with the chance to spot king fishers by the river (at Nethercott House), seals on the beach (at Lower Treginnis), or bats returning to roost (at Wick Court), before heading back to base for tea.
After tea, some groups head to the showers and enjoy free time with teachers, whilst others go back out onto the farm to put the animals to bed, repeating the morning routines with feed, water, and fresh bedding.
At 7pm our staff team heads home, leaving you to enjoy a peaceful evening.
