Ark Farm - Educational Mobile Farm
Covering Herts, Beds, Bucks, Cambs, East Midlands & London
Since 2009 we have been specialists in bringing a wide 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. For example a 2 form entry school booking a full day visit for their KS1 & EYFS classes would cost approximately £2.48 per child +vat based on 30 children per class.
Our standard a full day educational package includes written and agreed lesson plans, a written risk assessment, and all teachers pre & post visit support material. We have been Learning Outside The Classroom Quality Assurance Badge holders since 2010 and our staff are specifically trained to engage with children of all ages and abilities at an age appropriate level.
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.
