We take the "FAR" out of "FARM"
Ian's Mobile Farm specialise in making educational visits to schools throughout Northern England. Ian formed the Mobile Farm with the sole purpose of introducing children from a young age to a verity of animals. He is passionate about his work,Ian's Mobile Farm is completely self funded and does not receive grants or subsidies. We have visited 100's of schools throughout Yorkshire & surrounding counties with a 100% satisfaction record. We are passionate about educating and introducing children to a variety of animals covering your national curriculum topic.
From start to finish we work closely with you to arrange the perfect package for your school, we cater for all age groups from nursery to year six.We can talk about any subject that you are covering. Typically we explain what each animal is and what it eats & what care it needs on a daily basis. We answer any questions the children might have.The children get the chance to touch and stroke each animal and at the end of each session they can come up in small groups to see the larger of the farm animals. On making a booking you will receive a email with confirmation and information about the visit such as risk assessment
We can work to any sheduel-however 30 minute sessions to 1 hour work well with a lunch break for the animals and our staff
LOCATION: For our full farm option we ideally need to be able to park our 4x4 and trailer next to the area! We find your school playing field is ideal however should you not have one don't worry we can setup on hard standing and even transport equipment a short distance to the area however we must be informed of this before the visit as it involves bringing different equipment,animals and will affect the price.
We provide everything needed for the visit including gazebos for the children and animals in case of poor weather , benches for the children to sit on all after each session we ask the children to use our defra approved hand foam and then they must each wash their hands with hot water and soap on return to the school. We can hire the school one of our portable hand wash stations if needed.
We will leave the area in a clean condition & remove and dispose of all animal waste
PLEASE NOTE DUE TO DEMAND OUR FULL FARM IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR FULL DAYS ON WEDNESDAYS
HALF DAYS AVAILABLE TUES/THURS Please note spring animals are included in the full farm when available
