Ark Farm - Mobile Farm for Schools in Beds, Bucks, Herts & Cambs

Educational Mobile Farm or Small Animal Encounters

Visiting schools in Herts, Beds, Bucks, Cambs, East Midlands & London

We specialise in bringing a variety of friendly farm animals into schools, nurseries, children's centres and care homes, delivering a real hands-on educational and tactile experience for children and adults of all ages.

With the need to keep costs to a minimum and the administration involved in school visits our mobile farm provides a great alternative. Our educational packages start from under £350 with a full day package, suitable for between 180 & 210 children, costing as little as £3.07 per child. This price includes a written risk assessments, agreed lesson plans and all teachers pre & post visit support material.

Our range of farm packages can all be tailored for your specific educational, project or event requirements. On a typical visit we will bring sheep, pigs, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, a pony, cow or donkey and a farm dog along with any young they might have at that time.

Our Soft, Furry & Friendly Small Animal Encounters are ideal for smaller Nurseries and PreSchools. We will bring a selection of Bantam Chickens, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, a Pygmy Hedgehog, a Tortoise, a Barn Owl, Sugar Gliders and at least one of our lovely Dogs. We also have specific packages such as Autumn Animals or Nocturnal Animals that can be tailored for KS1 topics.
