Your Farm Visit
Whether you come for a whole week or just a day, your visit to the farm will be packed full of hands-on farming work, and there are loads of real-life learning and enrichment opportunities too. Surrounded by acres of green fields, children have the space to connect with one-another, they discover the important links between food and farming, and learn to love the great British countryside.
During your visit you will become part of the team, working with our farmers to do all the jobs around the farm. There are pigs and poultry to feed, eggs to collect, heritage breed cattle, sheep and lambs to check on, ponies and donkeys to groom, as well orchards and large kitchen gardens that needs to be looked after. Taking responsibility for these purposeful tasks provides a brilliant opportunity to master new skills, experience the benefits of collaboration and teamwork, to grow in confidence and self-belief by overcoming challenges, and to boost self-esteem and resilience. Spending time in wellies at the farms also provides plenty of physical activity, endless fresh air, and lots of delicious home-grown foods.
