Here at The Farm we encourage kids to enjoy and learn from the surroundings of a real working farm. Farm Kids inspires and educates children through our programs about where food comes from and introduces them to concepts like paddock rotation for the animals, the importance of pollination, organic farming, crops, healthy soil, composting and other ethical farming practices. Children can meet up close our heritage black pigs and watch them in their natural surroundings and be amongst our chickens whilst enjoying some of the best things in life, sunshine and fresh air.

Mini farmers holiday program

The kids become mini farmers and get set to work doing farm chores. collecting and cleaning eggs, checking fences, feeding animals, clearing paddocks and more. They work along side the farmers from Liberation Larder in the market garden. They cook, create and see where their food comes from as well as experience countless opportunities to learn about teamwork, community, and ethical farming practices.

School holiday activities

At the beginning of each workshop we take the children on an educational and fun tour of The Farm. We educate them about our pigs, bees, chickens, flower crops, herb garden, orchard and veggie crops. We discuss concepts like paddock rotation for the animals, pollination, organic farming, healthy soil and composting and other ethical farming practices. The children get up close and personal with our chickens, collect eggs and see how the chicken caravan works. The children pick and taste veggies, edible flowers and herbs. After the tour we head back to the barn where each day has a different point of discussion, cooking, gardening and craft focus.
