Fun outdoor sessions for 5-year-olds to teenagers.

Our clubs for children and teenagers are a great way to meet like minded people of a similar age, while enjoying some time outdoors surrounded by farm animals.

We offer 3 different clubs:

Young Farmers after school club term time after school club 9 years plus.
Little Farmers 5-8 year-olds School holidays
Young Farmers 9 Years to teens-. School holidays

Our farm is CEVAS accredited to provide educational visits and all staff running the courses are DBS checked, first aiders and have done safeguarding training.

Our young farmer sessions are available on set dates all year round and must be prebooked in advance. We offer 10 spaces at each session so they do get booked up quickly. If you have 2 children in different age groups and wish to book them on the same session, please contact us first.

During their time on the farm, they will assist us with feeding all of our animals, collecting eggs and checking them for signs of illness or injury and learning more about our alpaca, chickens, goats, sheep and pigs.

Of course, what goes in must come out so our young and teen farmers will also assist with mucking out and bedding up shelters and occasionally pooh picking.

To book please scroll down to your child age group to see the relevant dates.
