This programme can accommodate 12-90 children. If you have a larger group, we are happy to discuss a bespoke timetable with you.


Children will be taken on a tour of the farm and have an opportunity to meet the animals. This will involve some feeding and handling. Wherever possible, the tour will include our beautiful baby animals, but this depends entirely on the season of your visit. You will also have the opportunity to visit the cottage and compare how different the facilities/decoration is to our modern homes. Throughout the experience, children will be encouraged to participate in a number of well known songs and rhymes related to the farm and its animals.
