Meet and Greet

This introductory farm experience gives children the opportunity to meet, touch and feed farm animals while focusing on learning correct vocabulary for the animals and plants and their features. Using their senses, students will explore the farm and learn how we take care of our animals and gardens and what they need to be happy and healthy.

Paddock to Plate

As well as the opportunity to meet, touch and feed farm animals, students will learn about the food and fiber products that animals provide us with. Students will learn to use correct terminology for the animals and understand how some products are altered for human use. Students will learn about onsite fruit and vegetable production at Collingwood Children’s Farm and how this is managed.

Living Things

Students will get the opportunity to meet, touch and feed farm animals while focusing on vocabulary for plants and animals and their features. Students will discuss the characteristics of living things and learn to distinguish between living and non-living things.

Sustainable Cycles at the Farm

Students will get the opportunity to meet, touch and feed farm animals while focusing on the resources we use to operate a farm. Students will experience the inter-connectedness of plants, animals and people at the Farm and the importance of not being wasteful.

Hands-On Workshops

Workshops will relate to your chosen education theme.

It may be one of the following;

  • Gardening,
  • Woodworking,
  • Craft Activity.

Subject to the seasons and workings of the Farm, workshops may change and your groups may be planting seedlings, harvesting vegetables, making an insect hotel or building a worm tower.

Tour Details

The Farm experience is magical and changes with the seasons. Most of our animals are bred on site, and are happy, healthy and friendly. They love contact with people.

The Farm may close due to extreme weather (eg high temperatures, fire ban days, high winds or extreme events). In this instance, tours will be refunded or any payment already made can be transferred to another booking date .

Should a school wish to cancel a tour due to weather, the Farm must be notified within 72 hours. Refunds will be given only in cases of extreme weather warnings issued by BoM. Tours will go ahead on warm OR cold and wet days – students are encouraged to wear gumboots, wet weather clothing and warm jackets/sun protection and bring water!

The Farm aims to ‘bring city folk closer to country life’ and experiencing the elements is all part of this!
