Farm and Forest Tour
Strengthening their Foundations for a Healthier Future
Extend your Farming Foundations tour and spend up to 3 hours here on the farm. Go beyond the farms fields and explore our forest where wonders abound.
Engage the children’s curiosity and their senses as they explore our forest, listening for the babbling of the brook and the birds singing, searching for bugs and signs of animals, smelling the scents of the evergreens.
Compare the similarities and differences of the wild to our cultivated fields and domesticated animals -cover the basics of survival. Look for and feel the signs of the seasons, how they change and how the farmer adapts to them.
Language development is fundamental in all our tours as children expand their vocabulary and food literacy to incorporate their knowledge of where their food comes from and the natural world around them.
Time is spent in our barn visiting the farm animals – feeding them, learning their needs and their characteristics. Depending on the season the children will be planting or out in our fields harvesting what we grow.
This adventure encourages as much physical activity as is appropriate for the children’s age and abilities. As with all our tours we encourage learning by doing.
Spend a memorable day outdoors to walk, run, explore and play – the possibilities for learning are endless.
