Education Services Overview
At Acorn Farm we offer an extensive education programme, giving local schools and community groups the opportunity to learn about farm animals and food production in a variety of different ways.
Our education programme includes:
Our Animobile is a mobile farm which is brought out to schools and other groups in the community who may otherwise be unable to access us. The animals we bring include sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs (and when available we may also bring chicks, ducklings, lambs and goat kids). Children are given the chance to learn about the animals and have hands-on contact with them, too!
Groups of 15 or more visiting the farm Monday-Thursday will need to pre-book a guided tour. Our tours can cover different topics as requested to link in with the national curriculum.
Our incubator package can be hired out to schools and other registered groups so that you can hatch your own chicks and see new life begin! The package includes an incubator, fertile eggs, chick food and a brooder - and chicks can be returned to the farm to join our flock, so there’s no need to worry about finding them new homes!
