What’s so special about farm visits?
Interaction with animals imbues a sense of responsibility in kids. Not only that but they learn about caring and kindness, being gentle and accountable. Kids will learn about dairy farming, can milk the cows and see how dairy products are produced. Raspberry picking when in season is an especially fun activity for the whole family. Fishing venues allow for responsible fishing, braais and family activities that even mum will enjoy. Just being able to spend time as a family is reason enough to get out the house and into the sunshine!
Farm outings for schools
The perfect school outing venues for kids of all ages, farms offer a great experience for children. Preschoolers and foundation phase kids will benefit from farm outings as they learn about farm animals and the production of foods they eat daily.
