The Mobile Farm concept embraces the desire to bring children and adults into close contact with farm animals, thus inspiring interest and respect, whilst providing an exciting experience in the security of their own environment. You can also come to us and have the farm to yourselves! Each visit, whether is may be mobile or on the farm it self, is tailored to suit your needs, age groups and national curriculum.
