School Trips

It is our belief that a school picnic should be funaE|fun ..and fun together with a learning experience. Our farm has been designed to provide just that, through the following program:

The children will not only enjoy a total rural experience, but will take back with them the importance of conserving nature and reducing global warming.

Our farm will also be a great learning cum fun experience for your tiny tots. They can feed and interact with farm animals (horses, cows, calves, goats, rabbits, chicken, ducks, emus and, puppies) and also see a variety of vegetables like tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, peas, onions, etc., growing in the fields. We have a large well equipped children's park and lawn area for games and also covered dancing and rain dance areas.
