Planning your visit

Choose two of our educational workshops from below, these can be adapted to support the National Curriculum and any specific learning objectives.

Animal Handling and Feed Tour

Meet our animals that live on the farm, including pigs, goats, sheep, ducks and chickens. Enjoy the chance to hold, pet and feed some of the animals. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about where food comes from, animal welfare and farming.

Big Bug Hunt

Explore the wilderness of our 37 acres of farmland and see what wonderful bugs you can catch. We even have a bug hotel! Pupils will be given magnified bug catchers and moth nets. This workshop is great for discussing wildlife, habitats and the ecosystem.

Pond Dipping

With one of four ponds to inspect, you’ll be sure to get up, close and personal to frogs, newts, dragon flies and many more water based creatures. Nets and a viewing containers will be provided. This session is great for studying life cycles, environmental adaptation and evolution.

 

The visit was great, perfect timings for each activity we loved meeting all the animals and learning all about them. The children (and teacher’s) have had a great trip. Thank you to all the staff.

Health and safety

A visit to Bath City Farm is an enjoyable and educational experience. However, visiting a farm carries a small risk of catching an infection from animals or the animal environments. Farm animals can be the source of several germs that can be passed to humans and can cause illness. We will give a health and safety brief at the start of your visit explaining how you and your pupils can protect yourself to reduce the risk.
