Basil and Crew Mobile Farm

Bringing the farm experience to our school is a great way to learn and have fun. Basil and Crew provide an essential connection with the natural world around in a stimulating, safe and supervised environment. The mobile farm enriches the curriculum and can improve educational attainment.
They offer children the opportunity to touch, see and learn about each animal group. They encourage children and adults to gain confidence at their own speed with the various farm animals including, feeding, handling, grooming, and even goat walking.

  • Shetland Ponies
  • Donkeys
  • Sheep
  • Lambs (seasonal)
  • Goats
  • Kids (seasonal)
  • Rabbits
  • Guinea Pigs
  • Ducks and Ducklings
  • Chickens and Chicks
  • Tortoises

Trevor the mini tractor happily pulls the unique designed wheelchair accessible carriage providing rides for the all the children and some lucky staff.

£460 will allow us to invite Basil and Crews mobile farm.
