LEARN IN A FUN OUTDOOR ENVIROMENT.

Enrichment sessions on the farm are our most popular sessions with local schools. Some book for a term at a time and others for a one-off session. They are great for young people who need some time out of the classroom to learn in an enriching way.  

Enrichment sessions have been proven to benefit students mentally, socially and physically and they now play an important role in school education.

We are pleased to be able to work alongside our local schools to build farm-based enrichment programmes to suit their students’ needs and requirements.

These sessions can be for 2 hours or more and for up to 15 students at a time.
Contact us to arrange a pre visit to meet with us and discuss your student’s needs.

We are pleased to be able to offer a small number of FREE school visits per year, these are DEFRA funded. Please contact us to find our more and to see if we have any free visits still available for this year.

 

Our Farm

During your visit you can learn about how we care for all of the animals as well as learning more about our environment & the wildlife on the farm.

Our animals all graze outdoors but some need shelter from the rain so some paddocks have specially built animal shelters. We also have a number of outbuildings and stables which are used for birthing of if any of our animals need medical care.

Children love to learn more facts about the animals like why we shear the sheep and alpacas, why sheep and goats have rectangular eyes. Even the teachers are surprised by some facts we tell them.

Horticulture

We have an area of the farm which is dedicated to horticulture with a fruit & salad polytunnel, educational polytunnel for students to sow and grow their own produce, a green house, herb garden, vegetable patches and a fruit patch.

We are able to offer educational visits on growing your own food, where the children get to join in sowing and harvesting.

Around the farm we have hedgerows and British native trees, and in 2024 we will work alongside students to plant more trees including an orchard and creating two new garden areas, to include a sensory garden and a wildlife garden.

Curriculum Based

We will happily tailor your visit to match your current curriculum learning. If you are planning to come around lambing time, we recommend you book up in advance as this is a very popular time for school visits.

Karen & Skott (Ham) are our fun informative hosts and they love to answer the children and teachers’ questions. They look forward to welcoming you all to Frampton Farm very soon.
