Young Farmer Days
A Fantastic way for children (ages 6-12) 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 and they can take part in feeding, cleaning and grooming while learning about the animals.
Activities can be from grooming the donkeys to collecting the eggs, small handling to even bathing the tortoise but if there is a particular interest/animal they are keen to know more about then let us know, we would be happy to organise the day around their interest.
The day lasts from 9.30am - 2.30pm and costs £45 for the day (Great Gift Idea)
Lunch is provided from Astons restaurant and they also get a certificate for completing a full farmer day (only if they've worked hard enough of course)
Suitable clothing is a must, expect both clothes and child to return dirty!
Give us a call on 01142876699 for more information or to book your place now.
Next Young Farmers Day: Thursday 24th February: Hurry only 4 spaces left!!!!
Don't worry if you cant make this date; we hold 8/9 young farmer days a year and if you have a gift voucher it lasts a whole year!
