From guided tours to after school clubs , we aim to educate wherever possible. The benefits of learning outside the classroom are well documented and widely recognised and we welcome visits from schools of all ages and abilities!
One of the best ways to experience the farm is with one of our Farm Tours, a staff led, guided tour around the farm. The tours usually take around one hour. If you’d like to focus on a particular topic then please let us know, if we’re able to personalise your visit to link in with studies in the classroom, we’re happy to help!
Each tour includes:
- A Staff led tour around the farm
- The chance to get up close and meet the animals
- A talk about each animal with the chance to ask any questions
- Animal Feed to feed for the larger animals such as the goats, cows, sheep and aplaca.
- The use of our classroom – ideal for storage, snacks and lunch
- Time to revisit the animals at your own leisure.
A classroom based Craft activity and Pony rides can be added to your tour as an optional extra. Please see below for additional costs.

Planning on visiting Morden Hall Park?
We’re very fortunate to be situated on the land of Morden Hall Park, who are a brief 10-15 minute walk away from the farm.
If you’re planning on visiting Morden Hall Park or even passing through with your school group, you may need to book in advance. Please have a look at their National Trust website for more information on structured and self-led visits to the Park.
