Schools & Nurseries

The Adventure Farm is a fun filled day out for school and groups!


We are open for School visits all year round in Staffordshire term times *. A visit to the National Forest Adventure Farm can be used as a practical and fun way to teach subjects covered under the National Curriculum.We have a range of pre-planned workshops aimed at Key Stage 1 and 2 which are cross curricular, or you can mix and match to suit the needs of your class. We suggest a pre-visit from teachers to discuss what they want to achieve from the trip so we can be sure to meet your expectations.

All school visits as standard include a tractor and trailer ride, an opportunity to meet and feed the animals, fun in the play barn and outdoor fun fields, plus pre and post visit suggested activities.

Below are examples of our most popular workshops:

  • Spring term 2017 – New life on the Farm! Come and meet all our latest arrivals, including lambs, chicks and piglets, plus the chance of seeing a lamb being born in our lambing maternity unit!
  • Amazing Animals
  • Little Red Hen
  • The Hungry Caterpillar / Mini-beasts
  • We’re all going on a Bearhunt
  • Three Little Pigs
  • Healthy Plants, Healthy People”.
  • Introduction to French/German at the Farm
  • Christmas at the Farm! Take part in a magical telling of the Nativity Story in the Animal Barn, learn how to be a good elf, make some special reindeer feed to sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas Eve, meet Santa and choose your own present from the Elves Workshop!
