How long are the sessions?
Farm visits for Key Stages 2 - 4 are usually run as two hour sessions but there is flexibility around this and you are welcome to ask for shorter or longer visits.
How much will it cost?
Funding from Natural England as part of our Higher Tier Countryside Stewardship agreement means that we can offer a limited number of FREE visits - so please ask about these.
Can any of these activities be offered in school rather than as a trip?
Yes - A number of the activities can be run in your school, at a cost of £100 for up to 35 pupils.
