Last week we had our biggest ever school trip! 300 children from Marsh Hill Primary School in Birmingham enjoyed a day out at the Adventure Farm. The children took part in a scarecrow workshop, each making their own mini scarecrow to take home with them.
The Adventure Farm was able to offer 60 free places to Marsh Hill pupils as a part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme. We can provide 25 free class trips per year to schools with a higher than average number of students with pupil premiums.
We offer a wide range of school and nursery workshops based around food, farming and also popular stories such as “We’re Going on a Bearhunt”. The workshop are tailored to fit with Early Years and Key Stage 1 curriculums.
Barton under Needwood RUFC players have begun a novel fitness regime to prepare for next season. They’ve been using our equipment to get farm fit. The weekly training sessions see the team pulling tractors, lifting tractor tyres and even exercising their core muscles by jumping on the bouncy pillow. The team work on their body strength with hill relay races with weights and lifting barrels. They finish the sessions with a run around the animal paddocks.
Our Halloween pumpkins have been planted today by Fiona, Molly and Dorian from family business Pumpkins R Us. The crop should give us 6,000 pumpkins in 3 different varieties so there will be plenty to choose from come October half term holiday. Our popular Halloween Spooktacular event includes a FREE pumpkin for all paying children, haunted house, broomstick training, scare school, a maze mummy hunt and much more.
