The day begins with the coaches who collect all the children from both settings and gather at the farm. The children visit the animals including pigs, cows, goats, lamas, alpacas, reindeer, chickens, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs and more. They have also have a lovely reptile house with their large resident snake and lizards along with a large tortoise, an array of insects, and even an owl and meerkats.

During the afternoon session the children have the opportunity to play on the indoor resources and the large outside play area. The farm hosts an array of activities over the day including small animal holding, reptile shows, pig washing, bottle feeding goats and lots more, which the children enjoy during the day visit to Cockfield’s Farm.
