Sessions For Homeschooled Children

Sessions For Homeschooled Children

About our sessions:

Our farm is based on 14.5 acres of land in peaceful surroundings, we currently have alpacas, lambs, goats, pigs, shetland ponies, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs. Our pupils will get involved in our everyday tasks with our animals such as grooming, walking and cleaning out our animals. Alongside this we have our woodland area onsite where we can offer woodland crafts in our large army tent and den building, adjacent to this area is a large pond which is lovely for a calming place to sit. Our horticulutral area houses raised planters for each individual where they can grow their own vegetables and flowers.

Our small group sessions run 9:30am – 2:30pm every Tuesday. Age group 8-16 years.
