SCHOOL TRIPS

Learn outside the classroom on Junior Farm - book your group visit today!

Not only will a visit to our farm provide the perfect canvas for learning, it’s also a fantastic opportunity for your class to interact outside of the classroom. We’ll provide a day of hands-on experiences as they explore our farm, play, and learn about the importance of the countryside, its animals and where the food they eat comes from. Wroxham Barns Junior Farm is a member of the Countryside Education Visits Accreditation Scheme and its wide range of countryside and fun activities makes it a great place for children to visit.

We are recognised as suitable for pre-school to Key Stages 1 and 2, although enjoyable for all ages, and the activities and talks at our Junior Farm are useful for working towards attainment targets within the National Curriculum and can help with school project work – hooray!

Testimonials

We were so excited to bottle-feed the lambs and the staff were very kind and patient making sure every child got to have a go at feeding

The children loved feeding the animals and holding the chicks, they had a memorable visit

The staff on the farm made the visit extra special for our children. Your staff do a grand job wrangling a barn full of over-excited children and hungry animals

Our children gave it 10/10 and want to go back. They loved feeding the animals especially the greedy goats
