Ark Farm - Mobile Farm Booking & Prices

2019 Prices & Booking Information

We can tailor our farm visits to your needs both in terms of the animals that we can bring and in the style of the visit which can be either social or educational.

In addition we can vary the length of time we are at your site which, for schools, offers exceptional value for money by allowing several classes and year groups to enjoy the experience.

Typically we will look to bring at least 8 species of animals (16 - 25 animals depending on the time of year) ranging from: a pig or piglets, sheep or lambs, ducks, chickens & geese, a Dexter cow or Donkey, Pygmy goats, and a Farm Dog (Friendly Labrador).

Written lesson plans are agreed with you in advance and would normally be aligned to the EYFS Foundation and National Curriclum content. We are also able to structure the visiting animals and content to support specific topics like: Celtic Farming; Down on the Farm; Pet Week; Do cows drink milk?; Why don't hens lay square eggs? and classroom reading topics like Little Red Hen, Farm Duck or Percy the Park Keeper.

Our guide prices may be adjusted based on seasonal demand, booking early is the easiest way to secure the best price. The price we quote will be valid for 30days and will include all mileage and travel costs, the only extra would be the VAT element, which is charged at the prevailing standard rate.
