Every visit is unique and that's what makes it so special. We cater to your needs and support you throughout the process. You tell us what you would like to acheive and we make it happen. We send you lesson plans and activites leading up to our visit and leave you with more lessons, activites and information for after.
Whilst each visit can be tailored to your individual school needs, typically we will look to bring numerous species of farm animals ranging from pigs or piglets, sheep or lambs, ducks, geese, hens and a cow.
We have a minimum booking time of ten days to allow us to get all the necessary paperwork from DEFRA and other such agencies to ensure the wellbeing of the farm animals in transit.
Please refer to our booking pack for full details but nothing more than hand washing facilities for after the Countryside experience is required.
Typically a space of 10m x 4m would allow a class to see the animals properly. Obviously we would also need access for a larger 4 x 4 vehicle and trailer close to where you would want your 'farm' to go. This can be a playground, school field or even indoors such as a school hall.*
