Young Farmer Days

A Fantastic way for children (ages 5-12) to find out more about our animals here on Aston Springs Farm and how we take care of them.

Our Young farmers are given the opportunity to see how a real farm works. They can take part in feeding, cleaning and grooming while learning about the animals.

There are a variety of activities from; grooming the donkeys to collecting the eggs, small animal handling to even bathing the tortoise! If your child has a particular interest or an animal they are keen to know more about  then let us know, we would be more than happy to organise a part of the day around their interest.

The day starts at 9.30am and ends at 1.45pm and costs only £45 for the day - could be a great Gift Idea.

A lovely lunch is provided from Astons restaurant and if your child has special dietary requirements the restaurant can accommodate this.  Once the full farmer day is completed your child will be presented with a fully fledged farmer certificate. 

Suitable outdoor clothing is a must, as expect both clothes and child to return dirty!

Give us a call on 0114 2876699 for more information or to book your place now.

Next Young Farmers Day: Monday 29th July (spaces available)
