After a very successful summer of Farm Club, we are excited to be holding a weekly after school Farm Club! Over the summer, more than 30 kids had lots of fun learning how a working farm runs at the busiest time in a farmer’s calendar: harvest time! They got hands on with the pigs, alpacas and chickens, tended to the kitchen garden and went on trailer rides down the farm.
There are endless benefits to children attending farm club such as increased physical activity, improved social and communication skills, it develops children’s knowledge on farm to fork process and the environment, and also improves children’s mental and physical well-being and attention span! See our farm club/visits benefits sheet on the website!
We hope to see lots of faces there every Thursday during term time, and don’t forget your Children’s University passports!
Keep an eye out for information on more full day Farm Clubs during school holidays too!
