School & Group Visits 2019

With many years experience of managing school visits, and most of our schools returning year after year, we understand your needs with regard to safety, risk assessment and value for money.

We have created an educational visit programme that we are always trying to improve a balance of fun, education and hands on learning that provides children with an engaging and memorable experience. We host School & Group visits (minimum Farm Entry charge per trip 75.00 i.e. 15 children at 5 each - excludes extras) during the Spring and Summer terms annually. Special Needs Groups should contact us with their requirements. Pre booking is essential.
