We recommend you allow between one and two hours for the experience at the farm and if you choose to come during lunchtime the children are welcome to bring their own lunch for a picnic; we put up a shade structure with a mat on the ground for the children to sit on. We have an undercover area with tables and chairs available as well. We don’t charge the teachers accompanying the students for the tour (the option to purchase items is available).
