School trips

We offer fun and educational activities for schools, colleges and youth groups. Whether it’s lambing season or harvest time, there’s always something to keep everyone entertained on the farm.

a farm for all seasons

A year on a farm is a varied one and we enjoy watching the seasons come and go every year through changes in our animals, our allotment spaces and of course the nature we have on site. A Farm for All Seasons gives you the chance to bring your group along four times in one year (one visit per season) to see for themselves the kinds of changes that happen throughout the farm and how important an understanding of the changing seasons is to a city farm. For more information please download our flyer or our education brochure.

 

Incubation

We can provide everything you need to hatch chicks in your classroom. Our child-friendly incubators make it easy to watch this very special experience.

As well as coming to set up the incubators we can deliver 2 educational sessions and bring chickens and ducks to visit the children at school.

Find out more about our incubation sessions.
