Farmer for a day

This is a hands on farm experience for children aged 7 to 14. The day gives everyone the opportunity to get their hands dirty on the farm with our interactive approach and a day out they will not forget.

After lunch, which is included, there may be some general farm work to do including

  • making up the food for the animals

The day concludes at 3pm.
