Farm Tour

Farm tours take place at Blakenhall Park, the arable farm. Here we are lucky enough to have some amazing facilities where we can study the land including our organic pastures which we have organic dairy cows grazing on. We tend to concentrate our time in the ancient woodlands during the morning where we den build, build giant nests and go on a woodland trail and learn about the woodlands natural habitats, bug hunting and partake in some leaf identification. In the afternoons we have a rang of activities which we do around the field area this includes looking at crops, machinery, making woodland mobiles and mini rafts, pond dipping and meeting our resident sheep and pigs!
