  • Visit our meat goat herd. Learn about goats and goat care. Feed the goats a snack. Learn about ruminant digestion (the way goats digest their food) and how we manage our farmland to provide food for the goats and what the goats are used for at the farm - grazing research and unusual farm diversification activities!

  • Go out into the fields on the farm to learn about the importance of biodiversity on farmland. Enjoy our fun and interactive educational activities teaching about grasses and hedgerow plants, insects and mammals.

  • Visit the moorland adjacent to the farm and take part in our carbon quiz to learn about the importance of peatland and bog habitats.

  • Take apart a bee hive (with no bees in!) and learn about how our Bees make their honey. Learn about the role of pollinators in the wild and their role in human food production.

  • Check out our state of the art renewably powered tech on the farm - Go in the field where the heat pump is buried and learn all about the renewably powered super efficient heating and hot water system. Look at our state of the art electric power tools we use on the farm. See our Tesla battery charging bank, Tesla car chargers and our solar panel array that powers the farm.

  • Learn about what we are doing to help tackle climate change. Why is climate change bad? What can we do to reduce the negative effects of climate change? What is a carbon footprint and how are we reducing ours? What are the biggest emitters of fossil fuels? What are the easiest things each of us can do about climate change?

 

Please note: There is not time to cover all of these activities, but we endeavor to fit in as much as possible. Group leaders can select topics to focus on during the booking process. We will tailor our activities and language to the age/ ability level of your group, and spend more time on your focus topics where possible.
